Broken Wings
Words & Music by Chris de Burgh
 Intro: E - F#m - E/G# - A - E - F#m7/B - E - Esus4

These br[E]oken [F#m]wings can [E/G#]take me no f[A]urther
I'm l[E]ost, and o[B]ut [A]at s[E]ea,[Esus4]
I t[E]hought these w[F#m]ings would [E/G#]hold me forever
And [E]on to [B]etern[A]it[Ab]y,
[A]And far [E/G#]away I can h[A]ear your vo[E]ice,
I can h[A]ear it in the s[E/G#]ilence of the m[Bsus4]orning,
B[B]ut these b[E]roken w[F#m]ings have let[E/G#] me do[A]wn
[E/G#]They [F#m]can�[F#m7/B]t even carry[E] me [Esus4]home.[-] [E] [-] [Esus4]
In broken dreams that keep me from sleeping
I remember all the things I said,
Well I've broken all the promises
I said I would be keeping,
They're gone, like leaves they fell,
For it's so hard when you�re far away,
All I needed was a shoulder I could cry on,
Now these broken dreams have woken me,
My love, will you carry me home.
[E]Or[Esus4] will you tre[B]at me like some traveller
On a d[A]ark and [E/G#]lonely road[E],
Who [F#m]sees a ligh[E/G#]t and a w[A]oman who will [E/G#]give him [F#m7]love,[B]
Oh and j[E]ust when she reaches the par[F#m]t
When she's supposed to c[E/G#]omfort his broken h[A]eart
She turns a[E]way, and s[F#m]ends him travelling on,[B] on.[A] [-] [E/G#] [-] [F#m]
Oh when I left I believed that nothing would go wrong
I thought the whole world would be waiting for my story,
Take me back, my love, I need you now,
Come back and carry me home,
[E]Take me back and h[D]eal these b[C#m]roken wings[A],
Come [F#m]back and [F#m7/B]carry me h[E]ome[F#m].[E/G#] [A] [-] [E] [-] [B] [-] [A] [-] [E]
