She said our hands are our wings
What’s left of wings anyway
And anything I try to cling to
Always flies away

She said our hands are our wings
‘Cause we’re what’s left of angels
And if any angels still can sing
I wish they’d sing to me today

You know the higher you go the lonelier it gets
That’s why birds of prey mate for life
Are you someone that I can trust with someone important
Like holding me until I feel all right

She said our hands are our wings
They remain to remind us
That rebel angels fought their king
And were deformed for their defiance

Our hands our wings
These small simple things
And all the trouble they can bring
Our hands our wings
