Time will bring the real end of our trial
One day there'll be no remnants no trace
No residual feelings within ya
One day you won't remember me.

Your face will be the reason I smile
But I will not see what I cannot have forever
I'll always love ya
I hope you feel the same.

Oh, you played me dirty, your game was so bad
You toyed with my affliction
Had to fill out my prescription
For the remedy
I had to set you free.

Away from me
To see clearly
The way that love can be when you are not with me
I had to lead
I had to love
I had to leave
I had to live

If I can't have you
Let love set you free
To fly your pretty wings around.

Pretty wings, your pretty wings, your
Pretty wings. Pretty wings around.

I came wrong you were right
Transformed your love into a lie
Baby believe me I'm sorry I told you lies

I turned day into night
Sleep till I die a thousand times
I should have showed you better nights, better
Times, better days
And I miss you more and more

If I can't have you
Let love set you free
To fly your pretty wings around

Pretty wings, your pretty wings, your
Pretty wings, Pretty wings around

So Pretty wings, your pretty wings, your
Pretty wings, Pretty wings around

Say Pretty wings, pretty wings,
Pretty wings, Pretty wings around


Little, little, baby, pretty wings

Darlin, Darlin, Pretty wings, your pretty
Wings, your
Pretty wings, Pretty wings around

Pretty, Pretty, Pretty
Pretty wings, your pretty wings, your
Pretty wings, Pretty wings around

Someone better is gonna love you
Someone, Someone is gonna love you baby

Pretty wings, your pretty wings, your
Pretty wings, Pretty wings around (x4)

    Its about a guy who meets his perfect match. She's perfect for him and he falls in love, real love, however he doesn't know how to let it into his life. So in the process he mistreats her and breaks her heart. Even though she loves him and he loves her, he doesn't want to let her go. But, he does, because he knows that love she is enduring with him is not fair to her. So, he lets her go. Their timing is off. He lets her go to live her life and maybe they will meet again be together again. But for the meantime she should live her life, he doesn't want to hold her back bc he's not ready for love.

    it means to me that it is so sweet and that the love is stronger than anything in the world and the love can't be separated.. if i can't have you go out and find someone you think can love you better than me

    To me this song means if I can't love you the way my heart desires to then I must love you in the way that you need, even if that means letting you go to spread your "pretty wings." Beautiful...
