My heart was made of broken bones
My Soul's a bag of stick and stone
And out along this dusty road
You have come my love to take me home

I give to you my everything
You've given me these loving wings
And angels have all gathered round
To hear me sing my love out loud (oh...)

You lightly lifted me away
Out of a darkness, cold and gray
And I work beneath the midday sun
My cool blue water you have come

I give to you my everything
You've given me these loving wings
And angels have all gathered round
To hear me sing my love out loud (oh...)

So take your place here next to me
And I'll take my place there next to thee
And no matter how far we may roam
Its by your side I make my home

I give to you my everything
You've given me these loving wings
And angels have all gathered round
To hear me sing my love out loud (oh...)

    My mother passed away recently and I can't imagine a better song that describes the way she left this place.
    My patents divorced 23 years ago and she was never with another man and she was not only broken but broken hearted as well.
    We were each other's rock and a bond that didn't use words to communicate.
    I've looked at a picture frame with this saying on it since I was a little boy and never understood it's real meaning until I heard this song the day after she passed "There are two things you give your children. One is roots and the other is wings"
    I moved 700 miles to be with her and I got the best 2 months of my entire life before she passed. She needed me to lift her spirits for her journey home and I was able to give her wings back.
    Every line in this song has the deepest meaning to me about our lives together and I know I'd never get to personally thank him for the gift he's written and delivered in this song for me to carry her memory with me forever is beyond words. Dave (no homo) I love you man. Thank you.
