"Broken Wings" as written by Bryan Adams and Eliot John Kennedy....
Fight the fight alone
When the world is full of victims
Dims a fading light
In our souls

Leave the peace alone
How we all are slowly changing
Dims a fading light
In our souls

In my opinion seeing is to know
The things we hold
Are always first to go
And who's to say
We won't end up alone

On broken wings I'm falling
And it won't be long
The skin on me is burning
By the fires of the sun
On skinned knees
I'm bleeding
And it won't be long
I've got to find that meaning
I'll search for so long

Cry ourselves to sleep
We will sleep alone forever
Will you lay me down
In the same place with all I love

Mend the broken homes
Care for them they are our brothers
Save the fading light in our souls

In my opinion seeing is to know
What you give
Will always carry you
And who's to say
We won't survive it too

On broken wings I'm falling
And it won't be long
The skin on me is burning
By the fires of the sun
On skinned knees
I'm bleeding
And it won't be long
I've got to find that meaning
I'll search for so long

Set a-free all
Relying on their will
To make me all that I am
And all I'll be

Set a-free all
Will fall between the cracks
With memories of all that I am
And all I'll be

On broken wings I'm falling
And it won't be long
The skin on me is burning
By the fires of the sun
On skinned knees
I'm bleeding
And it won't be long
I've got to find that meaning
I'll search for so long

    General CommentI believe this song is about to coming to grips with our own mortality and realizing that we can change and make a difference in our life.

    The first part is saying we must take 100% responsibility for our lives. Nobody else will fight for us so we must do it alone.

    The chorus is interesting as I believe he is trying to relay the message that each and every day we're slowly approaching our own death("on broken wings I'm falling"). He is "on his knees" trying to find the meaning of his existence.

    We define our own lives and we must be the ones to make the change. We are slowly fading and soon only the memories of us will live on.
