Here comes an opening, she’s gotta broken wing,
If you can feel the sting,
Take care of everything, if she can make a scene,
I’ll show you what I mean/

She pack a loaded gun, set fire to anyone,
Knows how to make ‘em run,
She’s down on sixth street, she’s goin’ sixty,
She’ll show you how to breathe/

I don’t want to see, I don’t want to be,
I don’t wanna be anyone, anymore,
I don’t want to fake, I don’t want to break,
I don’t wanna say anything, anymore/

Every time you walk away, I wish you’d stay,
Instead of pushin’ further away,
Every time I hear you say, I just need one, to take this pain away/

You’re a broken wing, not a broken thing,
You can heal in time, if you try,
It’ll be okay, you can walk away,
Sweet Julia…./

Here comes an opening, he’s gotta broken wing,
If you can feel the sting,
Take care of everything, if he can make a scene,
I’ll show you what I mean/
He packs a loaded gun, set fire to anyone,
Knows how to make ‘em run,
He’s down on sixth street, he’s goin’ sixty,
He’ll show you how to breathe/

I don’t want to see, I don’t want to be,
I don’t wanna be anyone, anymore/
I don’t want to fake, I don’t want to break,
I don’t wanna say anything, anymore,

Every time ya walk away, I wish you’d stay,
Instead of pushin’ further away,
Every time I hear you say, I just need one, to take this pain away/
You’re a broken wing, not a broken thing,
You can heal in time, if you try,
It’ll be okay, you can walk away,
Sweet Julia…./

And I won’t laugh, I won’t look, I won’t listen if you just get up,
And I won’t laugh, I won’t look, I won’t listen if you just stand/

Every time I lie awake, I wish I, could take it all away,
Every time my heart breaks, I wish I could make it seem safe……/

Every time ya walk away, I wish you’d stay,
Instead of pushin’ further away,
Every time I hear you say, I just need one, to take this pain away/
You’re a broken wing, not a broken thing,
You can heal in time, if you try,
It’ll be okay, you can walk away,
Julia…./

    General CommentI'd say it's about someone telling a friend who is battling some sort of addiction - be it drugs, cutting, etc. - and saying that they're always there for them, even if they don't want them to be.
