Happy Rhodes – The Wretches Gone Awry lyrics

Mine are like the wings of a butterfly
A dusty pair so,
Don't you touch them or I'll never fly anywhere
And the wretches have gone awry I saw them walk on by
Ever see the wings of a dragonfly?
Paper-thin and cellophane
And quickly broken like the will to live for a mind in pain
And the wretches have gone awry I saw them walk on by
I cannot change what is and
I cannot make it die
But I can love with all my heart
The wretches gone awry
And the wretches have gone awry I saw them walk on by

You know I can be rid of my time and the moon will always shine
'Cause he knows I need him to walk this vile and crooked line
And the wretches have gone awry I saw them walk on by

And you can own all the light in the world and still be blind
And lie and hide away from the people in the world and still be kind
And the wretches have gone awry I saw them walk on by
I cannot change what is and
I cannot make it die
But I can love with all my heart
The wretches gone awry
And the wretches have gone awry I saw them walk on by
All I ask is you let me be to live like I do
I'll never be part but someday I will pass on through
And the wretches have gone awry I saw them walk on by
You can pull the wings from a dragonfly
And you can kill the flight of a butterfly
But you can't harm me for I live with the freedom to decide
And the wretches have gone awry I saw them walk on by
You cannot change what is and
You cannot make it die
But you can love with all your heart
The wretches gone awry
Say
You cannot change what is and
You cannot make it die
But you can love with all your heart
The wretches gone awry
Yes the wretches have gone awry I saw them walk on by
