Once Had Wings
(Marriner/Diteodoro/Sobb/Reddick – SOCAN 2013)

Long, long gone, Lord my days are few
Watchin’ the river run dry
I’m down, I’m down, lord I know its true
But I once had wings to fly
I once had wings to fly

Ain’t no way, to turn the time around
Ain’t no reason why
The one I love cold in the ground
We once had wings to fly
We once had wings to fly

When I close my eyes
I’ll meet her on the shore
When my time is done, we shall be as one
Together, we will soar

I have seen, Lord and I have known
I hold my head up high
I’m sinkin’ down, sinkin’ like a stone
I once had wings to fly
I once had wings to fly

When I close my eyes
I’ll meet her on the shore
When my time is done, we shall be as one
Together, we will soar

I’m gone, I’m gone
Ain’t no reason why
But I once had wings to fly
