Broken Wings 
Words & Music by Chris de Burgh
 
Intro: E - F#m - E/G# - A - E - F#m7/B - E - Esus
 
        E    F#m       E/G#        A 
These broken wings can take me no further
     E         B  A   E     Esus
I'm lost, and out at sea,
   E             F#m        E/G#       
I thought these wings would hold me forever
    E     B    A G# 
And on to eternity,
A       E/G#        A          E
And far away I can hear your voice,
       A              E/G#           Bsus
I can hear it in the silence of the morning,
 B         E      F#m          E/G#  A
But these broken wings have let me down
E/G# F#m        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.
 
E Esus        B 
Or will you treat me like some traveller
      A       E/G#       E
On a dark and lonely road,
    F#m        E/G#     A             E/G#     F#m7   B 
Who sees a light and a woman who will give him love,
        E                           F#m
Oh and just when she reaches the part
                        E/G#               A
When she's supposed to comfort his broken heart
           E         F#m                    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,
E                 D          C#m        A
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.
