"Having Wings" as written by Jason Conrad Yates, Leon Mobley, Ben Harper, Juan Dwayne Nelson, Oliver Francis Charles and Michael Ward....
I heard a street singer play a song I knew that brought me closer to you
I heard a street singer play a song I called my own that brought be to my childhood home

[Chorus]
Did you go back from where you came
If i get there will they have my name
If they don't I'll only have myself to blame
for all these things
True happiness is having wings

Life is a grey eyed, heavy hearted, whirlwind of a storm
Something they just hurt too much to cry
Memories are like shadows, the light won't make them disappear
So I still see you smiling with your eyes

[Chorus]
So did you go back from where you came
If I get there, if they have my name
If they don't I'll only have myself to blame
For all these things
True happiness is having wings

Did you go back from where you came
If I get there will they have my name
If they don't I'll only have myself to blame
For all these things

True happiness is having wings
True happiness is having wings
True happiness is having wings

    General CommentHe heard someone singing one of his songs on a street somewhere. Perhaps it was a song he wrote for her, this childhood love; so it brought him closer to her. It made him think of her, maybe this was his first love; maybe they have both moved away, maybe lost touch with each other, through things that happen in life. So now he's wondering if he goes back, or finds her again, will she be there, will she still have love for him, like he does for her, if she doesn't, he knows it's his fault; but inspite of it all, true happiness is being free. On the lyric sheet this song is dedicated for Nicole. So maybe she is the girl whose face he's always looking to see again.
