  • In a dream I spent a day with you
    In a carriage bought by blood
    The clouds were singing songs of fear and loss
    And they cut me down to size
    And they cut me down to size

    Broken wings
    Have a home tonight
    No one is listening, no one is listening
    When darkness fell on the streets last night
    We never expected, we never expected this

    In a perfect world, I'd never know your name
    And do we even know it when we die
    Or will death just pass us by?
    Or will death just pass us by?
    Please just pass us by

    Broken wings
    Have a home tonight
    No one is listening, no one is listening
    When darkness fell on the streets last night
    We never expected, we never expected this

    When all this pain is justified
    While all the time is passing by
    Now is when we clench our fists
    Knowing we can fight through this
    The hours and days are gone
    The weeks and months are moving on
    Can't they see that's nothing gonna stop us now

    Broken wings
    Have a home tonight
    No one is listening, no one is listening
    When darkness fell on the streets last night
    We never expected, we never expected this

    Broken wings
    Have a home tonight
    No one is listening, no one is listening
    When darkness fell on the streets last night
    We never expected, we never expected this

    Broken wings
    Have a home tonight
    No one is listening, no one is listening
    When darkness fell on the streets last night
    We never expected, we never expected this
    We never expected this Writer/s: JAMES DANIEL BREEDWELL, RANDY KEITH THOMAS
