"Broken Wings" as written by John Ross Lang, Steve George and Richard James Page....
Baby I don't understand
Why we can't just hold on
To each others hands
This time will be the last
I fear unless I make it all so clear
I need you so

Take these broken wings
And learn to fly again
And learn to live so free
And when we hear the voices sing
The book of love will open up
And let us in

Baby I think tonight
We can take what was wrong
And make it right
I need you so
Baby it's all I know
That you're half of the flesh
And blood makes me whole
I need you so

    General CommentThis song is one of my favorites. You just can listen to it over and over again and you never get bored. I think the song is about a failed relationship and now he is tryin to convince her to take him back and to make a new start. I don't now whether the girl gives him a second chance but I actually would if somebody sang this song to me. I also like the video pretty much, sometimes even more than the song. 80s rock!!!

    General CommentThis is a great song of a broken relationship. He realizes to late that its falling apart and he knows it over unless he steps up and tells her how much he truly loves her and cant do anything without her. One of the best songs from the 80's

    General CommentAwesome, powerful song about a failing relationship, and the desire of one partner to try and save it by professing how strongly he feels about her, and hoping they can commit to fix the mistakes made that night. Not sure if he is admitting to having broken her wings, and now encourages her, that he will give her the freedom to fly and live her life instead of being stifled.
    I just love this song.

    General CommentI think this song is about a couple where the girl messed up big time. The man initially might have broken up with her, but is now realizing how much he still needs and wants her .. and is now giving her the opportunity to fix her life and make things right.

    At least that's how I felt when I listened to it again today.

    General CommentPart of the songs' chorus is a reference to The Beatles song 'Blackbird'. The line is "Take these broken wings and learn to fly" which can be heard in both songs.
