Aiken, Clay - Broken Wings Lyrics




[originally performed by Mr. Mister]

Baby don't understand
Why we can't just hold on
To each other's hands

This time might be the last
I fear unless I make it all too clear
I need you so

Take these broken wings
And learn to fly again
And learn to live so free
And when we hear the voices sing
The book of love will open up
And let us in
Take these broken wings

Baby I think tonight
We can take what was wrong
To make it right

Baby it's all I know
That you're half of the flesh
And blood makes me whole
Need you so

Take these broken wings
And learn to fly again
And learn to live so free
And when we hear the voices sing
The book of love will open up
And let us in
Take these broken wings
You got to learn to fly
And learn to live so free
And when we hear the voices sing

Let us in
Let us in

Baby it's all I know
That you're half of the flesh
And blood makes me whole
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah so

Take these broken wings
And learn to fly again
And learn to live so free
And when we hear the voices sing
The book of love will open up
And let us in
Take these broken wings
You got to learn to fly
And learn to live so free
And when we hear the voices sing
The book of love will open up
And let us in

  16. heartsonfireao

    I looove this song so much! I dont know who
    is singing with him..but i love in the end where she says " a thousand different ways" and Clay sure can sing!!! beautiful video!!!!!!!!

  17. Myrrh Deveyra

    If you think his rendition of this song is excellent, do get his latest CD "On my Way Here." Aiken doesn't get much radio play for whatever reason, but his singing should be heard to be appreciated. Many think of him solely as a balladeer (and boring) but with his talent, IMO, he can vocally outperform any topcharter anyone can name.

  18. GjpgrD

    Wow, where has this guy been hiding? I keep finding great music of his on YouTube that I never hear on the radio!

  19. PurpleMoonlight812

    <<<<<3333333 Clay Aiken!!!!!!
    Love the transitions!

  20. Shari Sanchez

    just...incredible!!!

  21. Jbessette

    I have always liked the orginal Broken wings

    Clay Aiken Did a very good job on this song

    5 stars

  22. celestialnubian

    ditto firestarterri,
    He did this way better than I could have expected. I would have done a couple minor things differently but all in all it's good. If this wasn't a remake it would have been a good hit single. He need some original material like this.

  23. firestarterri

    I loved the original growing up, when I saw this as I was Youtubing, I expected not to like it..but he did a wonderful job. And the woman's voice is a great addition. Beautiful song done wonderfully.Great job on the vid too!Thanks for sharing it!:D

  24. cognitogrrl

    Seriously, Renee should direct Clay's next music video. I wish someone in TC would show him this. Bravo !! I don't favorite every video or montage I find on YouTube but this is a treasure to keep.

  25. Karen Patton

    I LOVE this song and about worn a hole through the CD listening to it so much. A wonderful montage of song and pictures ~ WELL DONE Renee!

  26. DangHesHot

    Thank you renee4clay.......for taking the time to make such a beautiful montage. This is my favorite song from the A Thousand Different Ways cd. (Unless you include Lover All Alone from Itunes...which I love the most) Wow... and I never really cared for this song before. What a great rendition. LOVE LOVE LOVE the poetry interspersed throughout the song. Your visuals make it even more special. Thanks again.

    Absolutely gorgeous, thanks so much!

  40. Ilona Grochalska

    You did a great job, Renee. I feel as if I heard this song in a new way, even though I played it many times before. Almost as if Clay did sing it to me in concert. Thanks.

  41. Lois Heyde

    This is absolutely beautiful. You've done a wonderful job.

  42. Shari Sanchez

    Incredible, Renee. Absolutely the best.

  45. Georgeann Ray

    Great job on this montage! I will definitely forward the link to many people I know, who will enojoy it also, I'm sure! Great song, it has taken time, but it has really grown on me. Now I will think of your visuals when I hear it! I think only seeing Clay sing it live would have been better! :)
