When you left here this morning, you were a broken bird
You said you can't turn out the fire
You can't turn out a fire
Your senses were widened
Your smile was hiding what you want nobody to see
Broken bird, now you're free

When you called from the pay phone
You were a paper doll
Said I couldn't tear you up easy
As weak as you were and as strong as I was

You think I'm stronger
I think you're wrong, girl
It's not easy to give you away
Still you call just to say

Just to say you were broken (just a terrible pair of wings)
You were broken (just a terrible pair of wings)
You were broken
You were a broken bird


Yeah, you knew when you met me
That I was razor blade
In these halls of bad memories
I'll do what it takes just to cut 'em all loose
Cause that's where I found you
That's where I found you
To a rocket headed straight for the moon
Where I will meet you soon

I could tell you were broken (just a terrible pair of wings)
Stranded in motion (just a terrible pair of wings)
You were broken
You were a broken bird

And you asked me for the world
All I gave you was the falling sky
Yeah, you asked me for the world
All you needed as place to fly
Yeah, you asked me for the world
And I couldn't give you the world

Cause you were broken (just a terrible pair of wings)
Left your heart open (just a terrible pair of wings)
You were broken
You were a broken bird
A broken bird
You were broken (just a terrible pair of wings)
Stranded in motion (just a terrible pair of wings)
You were broken
You were a broken bird
