with a broken wing lyrics – martina mcbride

with a broken wing, she carries her dreams
man, you ought to see her fly

she loved him like he was the last man on earth
gave him everything she ever had
he’d break her spirit down, then come lovin’ up on her
give a little, then take it back

she’d tell him ’bout her dreams, he’d just shoot ’em down
lord, he loved to make her cry
“you’re crazy for believing you’ll ever leave the ground”
he said, “only angels know how to fly”

and with a broken wing, she still sings
she keeps an eye on the sky
with a broken wing, she carries her dreams
man, you ought to see her fly

one sunday morning, she didn’t go to church
he wondered why she didn’t leave
he went up to the bedroom, found a note by the window
with the curtains blowing in the breeze

and with a broken wing, she still sings
she keeps an eye on the sky
with a broken wing, she carries her dreams
man, you ought to see her fly

with a broken wing, she carries her dreams
man, you ought to see her fly
