Having Wings

Having Wings

Ben Harper & the Innocent Criminals

I heard a street singer play a song I knew that brought me closer to you
I heard a street singer play a song I called my own that brought be to my childhood home

[Chorus]
Did you go back from where you came
If i get there will they have my name
If they don't I'll only have myself to blame
for all these things
True happiness is having wings

Life is a grey eyed, heavy hearted, whirlwind of a storm
Something they just hurt too much to cry
Memories are like shadows, the light won't make them disappear
So I still see you smiling with your eyes

[Chorus]
So did you go back from where you came
If I get there, if they have my name
If they don't I'll only have myself to blame
For all these things
True happiness is having wings

Did you go back from where you came
If I get there will they have my name
If they don't I'll only have myself to blame
For all these things

True happiness is having wings
True happiness is having wings
True happiness is having wings
