Susanna Hoffs – Enormous Wings lyrics

Written by mark linkous & susanna hoffs
Produced by matt wallace & jack joseph puig
Released on 'susanna hoffs' (1996)

There once was a very old man
Who had enormous wings
There once was a very old man
Who had enormous wings.

They say he saw the world
Through the eyes of a blue dog
(there once was a very old man
Who had enormous wings)
There once was a man
Who had enormous wings.

It was sad
The rain had knocked him down
People came to see from all around
He was lyin' there.

He was lyin' there.

His dreams are forever (there once was a very old man)
Entangled in the mud (who had enormous wings)
He's an angel (his dreams were forever)
Tangled in the mud (entangled in the mud).

Every soul you meet (there once was a very old man)
May be a stranger (who had enormous wings)
He's an angel (he's an angel)
He must be coming for the children (he's coming for the children).

It was sad
The rain had knocked him down
People came to see from all around
He was lyin' there.

And though he'd like to sleep
The stars fall to the earth in heaps
And he's got tears in his eyes
'cause the town is filled with so many spies
They all avert their eyes.

The rain had knocked him down
People came to see from all around
He was lyin' there.

It was sad
The rain had knocked him down
He was lyin' there.

They say he saw the world
Through the eyes of a blue dog
(there once was a very old man
Who had enormous wings)
He's an angel (he's an angel)
Who had enormous wings.

There once was a very old man
Who had enormous wings.
