“Broken Wings and Blank Stares”

Everyone drops
At the sight of the moon disappearing
But no one seems to notice
The boy who’s drowning
Who is the fool?
Boy, you don’t jump in the water
When you don’t know how to swim
When you don’t know how to live

And he screams
“Broken hearts don’t fly, don’t fly
And hollow eyes never cry, they don’t cry
And only lonely people understand why”
Broken wings and blank stares
Broken wings and blank stares

He reaches his hands
Palms turned up towards the heavens
And the tears that roll down his cheek
Mix well with the salt of the ocean
And he screams but his voice is gargled
As he sinks, sinks below the surface
He’s going down can’t you hear
The sound of his heart breaking

And he screams
“Broken hearts don’t fly, don’t fly
And hollow eyes never cry, they don’t cry
And only lonely people understand why”
Broken wings and blank stares
Broken wings and blank stares

I look into his eyes
I look into the water
I look at my reflection
And I yell
“Why don’t you look to the skies anymore?”
And I scream
“Why can’t you just be like them?”
And I whisper
“I wish you could grab my hand”
And I turn
I turn my back on myself again

And he screams
“Broken hearts don’t fly, don’t fly
And hollow eyes never cry, they don’t cry
And only lonely people understand why”
Broken wings and blank stares
Broken wings and blank stares

And I scream
“Broken hearts don’t fly, don’t fly
And hollow eyes never cry, they don’t cry
And only lonely people understand why”
Broken wings and blank stares
Broken wings and blank stares

I think that this song is really well written and has a lot of emotion. I would love to hear it because I know it must be very powerful. Awesome job, jimmy!
