I see a girl, too young to die
Lying on the cold, hard ground
Tears running freely down
She's too lost to be found

My heart breaks into pieces
As each droplet falls
Her sobs never stopping
Echoing on invisible walls

As she breaks down inside
Too pained to even stand
Too hurt to look up to me
She reaches out a bloody hand

I help her up, help her stand
And wipe her tears away
Now she sees the blood
And she faints and starts to sway

No, no, no, broken angel,
Open up your eyes
Get up and learn to fly
I won't let you believe in lies

Your light's almost gone
But you can fly, yes, you can
Look me in the eye
You can fly once again

So closing her eyes, she takes a breath
Raises her broken wings to fly
Waits for her feet to leave the ground
And lifts her chin to kiss the sky
