Alter Bridge Broken Wings Lyrics

Last updated: 07/31/2011 11:00:00 AM

Fight the fight alone
When the world is full of victims
Dims a fading light
In our souls

Leave the peace alone
How we all are slowly changing
Dims a fading light
In our souls

In my opinion seeing is to know
The things we hold
Are always first to go
And who's to say
We won't end up alone

[CHORUS]

On broken wings I'm falling
And it won't be long
The skin on me is burning
By the fires of the sun
On skinned knees
I'm bleeding
And it won't be long
I've got to find that meaning
I'll search for so long

Cry ourselves to sleep
We will sleep alone forever
Will you lay me down
In the same place with all I love

Mend the broken homes
Care for them they are our brothers
Save the fading light in our souls

In my opinion seeing is to know
What you give
Will always carry you
And who's to say
We won't survive it too

[CHORUS]

Set a-free all
Relying on their will
To make me all that I am
And all I'll be

Set a-free all
Will fall between the cracks
With memories of all that I am
And all I'll be

[CHORUS]

there is nothing emo about this song whatsoever. just because a song has a deeper meaning than "lets make love in this club" does not make it emo. Alter Bridge is one of the best bands out there. period. You will not find a band more passionate about making music and truly dedicated to their fans. And whoever said that Blue October is a more musically and lyrically talented band should be put to death. How do you get more lyrically amazing than "Endless days have taken
Taken what made me free Years have gone
I'm broken" (Shed my skin) Myles Kennedy's vocals and range are amazing. Mark Tremonti is one of the best and highly respected guitar players in the world.



awesome.... | Reviewer: unit34 | 12/20/09

alter bridge is one of themost passionate and talented rock bands since Staind, and no they are not eem osimply because all their music doesnt have the depth of "Train Kept A Rollin'" Mark Tremonti is a fantastic guitar player and myles kennedy's voice is incredible, truly one of the best bands to come out of the nineties....P.S. this song is amazing

This song is one of my favorite songs.
I just love the voice, so powerful yet so gentle.
It thrills me everytime i listen to this song, I also like 'Open Your Eyes'. I wonder how they come out so strong producing such super hits.

I'd be glad if anyone could tell me how they come to compose the song and what influenced them.

hey people | Reviewer: josie | 11/17/08

sorry but one...alter bridge is a rock/metal NOT an emo band. two they are not christian (that was creed) and three myles kennedy was not in creed that was Mark Tremonti, Brian Marshall and Scott Phillips.
just because these lyrics mean somthing dosnt make tham flippin emo or christian.
but apart from that this song is amazing. alter bridge influence a lot of people, and most of the time their lyrics make people think, they do for me anyway. been to see alter bridge twise, they were awsome live:) there will definatly be a third time

peace and keep rocking

Broken Wings | Reviewer: Mitzi | 2/26/08

This song's words have remained in my mind for awhile and its words still remain true.It is a very beautiful song, my favorite line is "fight the fight alone when the world is full of victims".It is true and sad,but inspiring that we have ourselves always.



it ok | Reviewer: mr sir | 12/10/07

i like alterbridge but i can't tell if this song is christian related i mean not that thats bad or anything it just skews the perspective of things cause i think the singer is the singer from creed or somthin lie that and then creed broke up so i don't kknow it a good song but i think blue october is a lot better lyrically and musically
