Broken Angel

(I. Hanson / T. Hanson / Z. Hanson)

Lead Singer: Zac



So small, yet still so proud
At night before he dreams he looks into the clouds
A high flyer's what I want to be
Seems they won't let me, says I'm too small
I don't feel small at all
Break my dreams, that's what they'll do
Well I'm going
To run away and learn to fly like you
I'm going to go so high
And swoop so low
You can't bring me down, going to be so proud

Little angel you got to learn to fly
Get up and earn your wings tonight
Little angel just look in my eyes
Get up and earn your wings tonight

Push and shove then climb aboard
This is the shuttle train to the top of the world
When you look around what do you see?
These are all high flyers
But none of these high flyers look like me

What is that supposed to mean?
What am I supposed to be?

I pull my way up through this crowd
To find your body crushed on the ground
It's so obvious, why couldn't you see
That you can't go high flying without a pair of high-flyer wings?

Little one's broken lying on the ground
Trying to get up 'til his last breath out
Wings are strewn everywhere, there's blood all around
'Cause even angels die, but that light just fades
It's so sad, but he'd be so proud

Broken angel you've got to learn to fly
Get up and earn your wings tonight
Broken angel just look in my eyes
Get up and earn your wings tonight
Get up and earn your wings, earn your wings tonight
