Girl with Broken Wings - Manchester Orchestra

On the porch she will sit, light another cigarette
And take a sip of anything that makes it right
She's outside trying to hide from the fight just inside
Where her mom and her dad destroy eachother

On the phone she will call every boy, yeah one and all
They will touch her in all the right places
In her room she will slide down the bed and try to fly
And she will fall once again, for the feeling

And as he grabs her brown hair
She is faking that the feeling he gives her is real
As the floor underneath the bed is broke in two
She will finish what she starts with "I love you"

So from her head, to her toes
Nervous hands and a runny nose
All of this just for one night of feeling
And in her ears she will hear all the things
That hide her fears of dying young
And making plans for the future

And all the marks on her arms
Symbolize a fractured heart
And all the boys that were smart left her alone
So from the roof she will fly
Fifteen feet down the side of the house
Where she once was happy

Yes it's true, she's aware that she is breaking
And it's true, she can't do anything
Well in her blue underwear she is thinking how
In Jesus' precious name she got here

Well its sad, but it's true that she is empty
But for now she will pray for some wings.
On a black Cadillac she is landing on...
Yet her parents' biggest worry is the car
