DAYS WITH WINGS

from by Black Balsam

lyrics

when days with wings like these are dawned
we put our pilots’ goggles on
we put our pilots’ goggles on
we put them on

when hearts as large as ours are pierced
our blood is hot and thick and fierce
we fill our glasses to the top
don’t spill a drop

spread our wings and we fall
raise our voices and sing
we’ve got nothing at all
we’ve got nothing

when clouds as dark as these roll in
we turn our faces towards the wind
bring on the wind, bring on the rain
we’re not afraid

and when it comes and if it’s bad
and if the wind takes off our hats
we won’t be scared by any storm
we’ll huddle close for warmth

spread our wings and we fall
raise our voices and sing
we’ve got nothing at all
we’ve got nothing
spread our wings and we fall
punctured hearts and we bleed
we’ve got nothing at all

we’ve got all that we need
when afternoons are long and gone
we wave at the departing sun
when evening’s anchor’s weighed then we
will watch the stars over the sea
when nights this thick and sweet sink in
take off our heavy things and swim
and kick until we can no more
and wash up on the morning’s shore

when days…

when days with wings like these are dawned
we put our pilots’ goggles on
we put our pilots’ goggles on
we put them on.
