Jack's Mannequin - Broken Bird Lyrics




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

  4. KyleNBD

    I remember when I went and bought 2 copies of this album on its release date at 6AM before I started school (this was back in high school). One for me, one for my girlfriend.
    We still listen to this album together every time we're together. Happy, sad, mad, scared; doesn't matter. This is our group and this was our album.
    Thanks, JM.

  5. Ghita Tazi

    @4everEdwardandBella that way it's quit better ; when a band gets famous they start doing bullshit ;)

  6. BoltroBankai

    @bprock1 and you don't think Apple profits from iTunes?

  7. bprock1

    @BoltroBankai Buying the physical copy does not help the artist is just puts money in the manufactures
    pocket.

  8. Alex Milligan

    needs more cowbell

  9. thisisjustaflashback

    @BoltroBankai i live in a secluded town where it is almost impossible to find any album i find worth listening, so i had to buy this online D:

  10. nksw1

    it's unfortunate that us itunes won't work in my country :( i can't get this beautiful song

  11. Jessica Faith

    I love this song so much. My friend and I bought all three versions of PEOPLE AND THINGS. Record/Best But Exclusive/iTunes to get the extra tracks!

  12. Melissa Senger

    great song! i'll have to buy the extra songs on Itunes

  13. schlagzeug

    This music is the reason why I still swim!

  14. taylor baker

    @ynot89avenger this is only on the itunes album!
    i dont know exactly what its called

  15. taylor baker

    @BoltroBankai well theyre the same album except for the bonus tracks at the end. the album costs more online. both of the albums have exclusive content it just depends on which one you bought.
    but i do agree that the album they featured online shouldhave been in stores instead of the other way around.

  16. BoltroBankai

    They shouldn't be offering exclusive content to the people who download the album online, even if they did buy it.
    The ones who should be rewarded are the ones who physically go out to the store and buy a hard copy of the album itself.

  17. taylor baker

    @ynot89avenger best buy has a different version than itunes. itunes has four bonus songs at the end that are amazing and this happens to be one of them!

  18. ynot89avenger

    Which album is this on? I bought the best buy version and it isn't on there...wish it was.
