Baby, I don't understand Why we can't just hold on To each other's hands This time will be the last I fear unless I make it all too clear I need you so
Take these broken wings And learn to fly again And learn to live so free When we hear the voices sing The book of love will open up And let us in Take these broken wings
Baby, I think tonight We can take what was wrong And make it right Baby, it's all I know That you're half of the flesh And blood makes me whole I need you so
So take these broken wings And learn to fly again Learn to live so free When we hear the voices sing The book of love will open up And let us in
Take these broken wings You've got to learn to fly, learn to live, love so free When we hear the voices sing The book of love will open up and let us in yeah, yeah
Let us in Let us in
Baby, it's all I know that you're half of the flesh And blood that makes me whole Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah Yeah, yeah, yeah
So take these broken wings And learn to fly again, learn to live so free And when we hear the voices sing The book of love will open up and let us in
Take these broken wings You got to learn to fly, learn to live and love so free When we hear the voices sing The book of love will open up for us and let us in Yeah, yeah, yeah Yeah, yeah, yeah

Siddiquee Noor Bappy from Bangladesh Richard Page said in an interview that they were battling their Cocaine addiction when they wrote the song. I found this song so inspiring.
Love And Kindness from The WorldWe should never forget the 1980s. In a world of pain, suffering where most people have lost the narrative of life and meaning in general, no other time period in human history will be the same as the art, music, creativity of the 1980s and its artists such as Mr. Mister. Let this music be the guide and and a comforting memory of the times once here on this earth; not lost in history, yet still very present and there for us to revisit and love, once again, like we did in the 1980s. World peace, love, harmony and friendship forever!
Helena from United KingdomI love this song SO much, I'm a big fan of Mr Mister and have been for nearly 10 years now. I love the video as well, it's so mysterious and I'm a lover of mystery and intrigue. I love how you never see the faces of the dancers, also. Richard Page is a fantastic vocalist and was very easy on the eye too, back in the day. A great band and a great singer and both should've had more recognition.

Barry from Sauquoit, Ny"Broken Wings" peaked at #1 (for 2 weeks) on Billboard's Hot Top 100; it had entered the chart on September 21st at position #84 and spent 20 weeks on the Top 100 (eight weeks on the Top 10).
Mdianne from Evansville, InWhen a song takes me to another place, it's a heart keeper. This one does, and therefore. is. With what facts I've just read, I think the lyrics imply a very "high" love; even spiritual. No one can "love" like this song resonates, therefore, it has to be above the earth.
Esskayess from Dallas, TxBuffalo took those broken wings and started a snack sensation.
Chris from South Surrey, BcLove the ethereal undercurrents to this one.
Paul from Washington Dc, DcIt took a while, but this one grew on me. The lead singer's voice is similar to Justin Heywood's. In fact, it could almost be a Moody Blues song. Anybody agree?
Jeff from Atlanta, GaMiles Davis.. did a nice version of this as well around the time he put out Tutu.. This is a great pop song..
Lars Ulrich from CopenhagenHeard this song when Mister Mister opened for Tina Turner. Have to admit it is catchy.
Sara from Silver Spring, MdMr. Mister was originally known as "Pages" a West Coast duo composed of Richard Page and Steve George. The two sang backing vocals on many artists albums including Al Jarreau, Kenny Loggins, Barry Manilow, Dionne Warwick, Marc Jordan, Peter Allen and Engelbert Humperdnick.
