Today I watched a robin

In our front yard

I thought by now that they schold all be gone.

With winter 'round the corner

Snow on it's way

Surely their must be something wrong.

Then in that old oak tree I finally saw her

Where she sat gazing down upon her mate

And the song that she was singing

Seemed to say 'i'll be right here'

'i'd like to go, but your love's made me stay. '

He's got a broken wing

And that's why he can't fly

She just can't leave him there

So she stays by his side

They're just like you and me

Oh you should've heard her sing

They won't give up

It's just a broken wing.

I wish we all could learn

What they seem to have found

To love our families

When trouble comes around

I'll bet that God saw fit

To show them unto me

Him on the ground

Her in that tree.

He's got a broken wing

And that's why he can't fly

She just can't leave him there

So she stays by his side

They're just like you and me

Oh you should've heard her sing

They won't give up

We won't give up

They won't give up

It's just a broken wing.

Ooooooooh...

It's just a broken wing.

Broken Wing Lyrics

Leann Rimes – Broken Wing Lyrics

Today I watched a robin

In our front yard

I thought by now that they schold all be gone.

With winter 'round the corner

Snow on it's way

Surely their must be something wrong.

Then in that old oak tree I finally saw her

Where she sat gazing down upon her mate

And the song that she was singing

Seemed to say 'i'll be right here'

'i'd like to go, but your love's made me stay. '

He's got a broken wing

And that's why he can't fly

She just can't leave him there

So she stays by his side

They're just like you and me

Oh you should've heard her sing

They won't give up

It's just a broken wing.

I wish we all could learn

What they seem to have found

To love our families

When trouble comes around

I'll bet that God saw fit

To show them unto me

Him on the ground

Her in that tree.

He's got a broken wing

And that's why he can't fly

She just can't leave him there

So she stays by his side

They're just like you and me

Oh you should've heard her sing

They won't give up

We won't give up

They won't give up

It's just a broken wing.

Ooooooooh...

It's just a broken wing.
