Flyleaf – Broken Wings lyrics

Thank you for being
Such a friend to me;
Oh, I pray a friend for life.
And have I ever told you
How much you mean to me?
Oh, you're everything to me
I'm thinking all the time,
How to tell you what I feel,
I'm contemplating phrases...
I'm gazing at eternity;
I am floating in serenity...

And I am so lost for words.
And I am so overwhelmed.

Please don't go just yet.
Can we stay a moment please?
We can dance together;
We can dance forever.

Under your stars tonight,
And I am so overwhelmed.

So close your eyes,
But don't dream too deep.
And please pass me some memories.
And when I fall you're underneath
A thousand broken hearts,
Carried by a thousand broken wings.

A thousand broken wings.

    It's her song to god. But for me its me and my best friend (we are both females) song. We are both 27 and been friends/sisters for 11 years, there have been times when I have moved states away and always ended back where she is, we were very different from each other when we met but now you can barley tell us apart, we are both now married and she has 5 kids and I have none, I live an hour away from het but I always see her every week and I listen to this song almost every day!

    It actually about God. Lacey wrote it because she knew either the band would split up, or one of the members would leave. The original version is off of the EP called "Broken Wings". The Lyrics "thank you for being such a friend to me, oh I pray a friend for life, and have I ever told you how much you mean to me." means that she's thanking everyone in the band for being her best friends. Which is why on her last album "New Horizons" this song was on there. She was saying bye to Pat, Jared, James, and Sameer. But she was also saying bye to us, her fans.
