The Wallflowers - Roots And Wings Lyrics


You’re such a heavy bird
You’d never get far on your own
You’ll never have a use for your feathers
While you’re hopping down the road
You were born to walk the earth
With your back against the cold
And no you never had a purpose
Till I wore you on my back like a coat
You’re in your evening gloves
You’re off the farm taking big city drugs
No matter how far you get, let it sink in
That I gave you roots and baby I gave you wings
Yeah I gave you roots and I gave you wings

And I showed you how to swing
I showed you how to strut
That’s my mojo you’re using
That’s my wine getting you drunk
Was I that broke you in
I got you clean, clipped and cut
You’re a mule among horses, I took you
When God stood you up
Now tell me who could do more
Set myself on fire keeping you warm
And now I’m off the hook and he’s on your chin
But I gave you roots, yeah baby I gave you wings
Know I gave you roots and I gave you wings

Now you’ve got your looks and your pretty things
A new set of chances that I wouldn’t give
Now if you’ve forgotten, I’ll tell you again
That I gave you roots, baby I gave you wings

You’re such a heavy bird
You’d never get far on your own
Yeah I gave you roots, baby I gave you wings
Yeah I gave you roots, baby I gave you wings
Oh now you’re such a heavy bird
You’d never get far on your own
I gave you roots, gave you roots, I gave you wings
Gave you roots, gave you wings
You’re such a heavy bird
