Intro: E - F#m - E/G# - A - E - F#m7/B - E - Esus
These broken wings can take me no further
I´m lost, and out at sea,
I thought these wings would hold me forever
B A G#
And on to eternity,
And far away I can hear your voice,
I can hear it in the silence of the morning,
But these broken wings have let me down
F#m7/B E Esus - E - Esus
They can´t even carry me home.
In broken dreams that keep me from sleeping
I remember all the things I said,
Well I´ve broken all the promises
I said I would be keeping,
They´re gone, like leaves they fell,
For it´s so hard when you´re far away,
All I needed was a shoulder I could cry on,
Now these broken dreams have woken me,
My love, will you carry me home.
Or will you treat me like some traveller
On a dark and lonely road,
E/G# F#m7 B
Who sees a light and a woman who will give him love,
Oh and just when she reaches the part
When she´s supposed to comfort his broken heart
B A - E/G# - F#m
She turns away, and sends him travelling on, on.
Oh when I left I believed that nothing would go wrong
I thought the whole world would be waiting for my story,
Take me back, my love, I need you now,
Come back and carry me home,
Take me back and heal these broken wings,
F#m F#m7/B E F#m
E/G# A - E - B - A - E
Come back and carry me home.
