YOUR LITTLE WINGS
by LUKA BLOOM

This New Morning
This New Morning
(2012)
So youíre preparing for the weekend
Spray on colour, try the high-heeled shoes
Comparing notes with all your girlfriends
Making plans for smokes and booze
Friday nightís a giddy feeling
You never know what is in store
Avoid the looks from worried parents
You go waltzing out the door

I canít protect you from the world
I canít protect you from yourself
I canít protect you from the world
If I could I would
If I could I would

It was midnight when I saw you
Alone and propped against a wall
Lipstick, mascara run together
Couldnít hide the bruises from your fall
Your little wings could bring you anywhere
Your little heart is open as the sky
Iím haunted by the empty gaze
A naked truth within your eye

I can't protect you from the world
I can't protect you from yourself
I can't protect you from the world
If I could I would
If I could I would

Dear God take care of all the young ones
Chasing shadows in the night
I hope you guide them all home safely
Home to sleep and to the morning light

I canít protect you from the world
I canít protect you from yourself
I canít protect you from the world
If I could I would
If I could I would
