Sparks, Jordin - A Broken Wing Lyrics

She loved him like he was
The last man on Earth
Gave hime everything she ever had
He'd break her spirit down
Then come lovin' up to her
Give a little, then take it back

She'd tell him about her dreams
He'd just shoot 'em down
Lord he loved to make her cry
"You're crazy for believin'
You'll ever leave the ground"
He said, "Only angels know how to fly"

And with a broken wing
She still sings
She keeps an eye on the sky
With a broken wing
She carries her dreams

Man you ought to see her fly

One Sunday morning
She didn't go to church
He wondered why she didn't leave
He went up to the bedroom
Found a note by the window
With the curtains blowin' in the breeze

And with a broken wing
She still sings
She keeps an eye on the sky
With a broken wing
She carries her dreams
Man you ought to see her fly

With a broken wing
She carries her dreams
Man you ought to see her fly

Sparks, Jordin A Broken Wing Comments
  1. Erma Smith

    I love that song. I loved it when Martina McBride sang it and I love it just as much with Jordan Sparks. She's so talented and still so humble.

  2. Deena Nelson

    For me it was all about how she told the story of the song with her eyes, her entire demeanor. It was mesmerizing and she did do Martina proud!

  3. Joey Gagliardi

    This Performance by Jordan has never left my mind,, I play Martina's Version all the time,, and always never thought anyone could ever come close to replicate it,, But This Girl,,, You Rocked It, like no other,, God Bless You and Your God Gifted Talent,, Love Yah here in 2019 and always

  4. John Ogden

    Wonderfully done Number 1

  5. chargerguy11

    In my opinion, one of the best performances on American Idol ever.

  6. westerlu77

    I never forget when I heard that last long note in the end for the first time. It's so good! 17 years old!

  7. Soaring On Eagles Wings

    I remember this like it was yesterday. Goosebumps still!

  8. sourcheesepringles

    I thought her name was Georgine Starks

    josh miller

    sourcheesepringles lol

  9. Robert Zeurunkl

    That was a FANTASTIC performance. Did she eventually win?

    Jeanne Stewart

    Robert Zeurunkl yes she won!

  10. Neacy Lowery - Ashford

    I'm surprised that Simon Cowell said some positive comments to Jordin Sparks and believe me she did won

  11. 2039marl

    Still an extraordinarily beautiful performance by a beautiful girl -

  12. I I

    Its whatever

  13. Pablo Sergio Rivera

    The only time I watched this show asides from the funny auditions. What a voice, what a star.

  14. Albert Pucci

    Simon was right, he said she could have won and she did

  15. Marquise Robinson

    i think shayla fearing did better on the voice

  16. K R

    I think country is her genre. She she need to do songs like this.

  17. Edgar Castellon

    One of my favorite performances from all Idol seasons. I knew she would win too after this performance. When Melinda DooLittle got eliminated, I knew it was Jordin's season.


    Blake in the final was such a joke. Lol.

  18. Andy

    love jordin sparks!

  19. Andy

    Tristan Mcintosh tried to sing this on AI this season. lol try again! didnt even come close to Jordin

  20. lanie m

    The 3 people that disliked this are probably just jealous

  21. Shelly Mae

    Idol duet brought me here in 2016.
    Simon predict Jordin can win and she did.

  22. Hannah christeen

    Can u guys please check out my cover? Thanks

  23. Horace Gold

    I'll never foget this performance. This was when I knew she was gonna win!!!


    I always knew right from the beginning. She has the total package. Melinda and Lakeisha are superb vocalist. But they dont have that overall package (looks, personality, etc). Jordin was just perfect and it helps her being young and having a big teenage follower

  24. Nicholas Wilcha

    My favorite winner to ever come off the show in all their fifteen years. God bless her.

  25. Aasia Abal

    She is beautiful,voice is amazing,she sings like she is not tired at all,perfect control!

  26. Jay Hohaia-Portelli

    Such control of such an awesome voice.

  27. Grace Meta

    Her voice is just so gorgues

  28. Ingrid James

    Keneshia I saw that sign and I thinks it's ironic too. Wow Sparkled, and years after she stated in it!!!

  29. louis leuellyn


  30. Talia Patton

  31. Taylor Fulton


  32. Jazzy Fay

    Lol she's so cute

  33. Carlos Chenault

    Jordin Sparks sang one of my favorite songs, On A Broken Wing, and she nailed it. Beautiful voice and delivery.


    Carlos Chenault isn’t the song called “A Broken Wing”...

  34. TTORREZ1

  40. Keneshia

    Did ya'll see the sign at the end where someone had "Jordin Sparkle?" It so ironic that they had that sign and she was just in the movie Sparkle. Weird, huh?

  41. folompleonleaves


  42. angelica adderley

    SPARKLE!!!!!! <3

  43. Mariah Carpenter

    @RAGS123abc she might be better than Martina!

  44. RAGS123abc

    i think it would be awesome if carrie underwood came and was a mentor during country week on idol one of these years - so many of them use her songs, and she has so many good ones...

    Camille Peruto

    RAGS123abc she did this year!

  45. Barry Greene

  46. Michelle Valastro
