  1. Wings on a Prayer

Lyrics

Wings on a Prayer, by Dennis James

Give it up
There’s no place left to hide
You’ve been running for so long
That you’re running out of time

Hand it over
And heed the past
I know it wasn’t what you wanted
But it was never meant to last
So hand it over

Walk away
It’s okay to let it be
You know you’re not the only one
We’ve all been poisoned by that sting

So lay it down
And bare your naked soul
For the neverending sky
Is just dying to be told

Chorus:
Look at all our misbegotten dreams
While heaven just keeps dancing there by whatever means
And I declare to every star in the sky
We’re all just wings on a prayer looking to fly
Looking to fly

Open up
Sing your broken-hearted song
With all these feathered symphonies
You know it can’t be wrong

Dry your eyes
And rhyme yourself a smile
With finger-painted poetry
You’ll just thrive all the while

Chorus:
Look at all our misbegotten dreams
While heaven just keeps dancing there by whatever means
And I declare to every star in the sky
We’re all just wings on a prayer looking to fly
Looking to fly

Let it shine
This light you cannot see
For it burns all through the night
Just begging you to believe

And set her free
This bound and wounded child
Spin her in a million circles
With her laughter mad and wild

Chorus:
Look at all our misbegotten dreams
While heaven just keeps dancing there by whatever means
And I declare to every star in the sky
We’re all just wings on a prayer looking to fly
Looking to fly
