"Broken Wing"Mature

new song i wrote credit for the prechorus to Billy Talent for "This Sufforing" and Martina McBride for "Broken Wing" for the chorus

Broken Wing

(Verse) She’s layin’ face down on the ground// naked and humiliated blamin’ herself for what just happened/ so worn out that she can’t even cry/ so beaten down that she doesn’t even wanna try/ it started out as the perfect date night without a cloud in the sky/ but it turned into a nightmare now she just wants to curl up and die/ askin’ herself “why tha hell did I trust that guy/?” But she’s feelin’ vulnerable layin’ in the middle of a pitch black back alley/ so she puts the shame and pain aside and puts on her best disguise/ but she can’t hide the fear that’s written in her eyes/ less then quarter mile to her house puts on a fake smile/ just tryna rile up every last burst of energy she has left in her body/ but she can still feel him inside her as she starts to wonder if he got her pregnant/ stops for a moment to think about it and realizes that she wouldn’t be able to give it up for adoptment that she’d have to have it/ then snaps back to the present runs home to the bathroom mirror and makes herself a commitment/ as the thunder clouds roll in and lightning strikes begin she’s promisin’

PRECHORUS“Misery/ won’t get the best of me/ ‘cause I’m calling, yes I’m calling on your bluff/ misery/ won’t get the best of me/ ‘cause I’m calling, yes I’m calling on your bluff/ throw down the cards I’ve had enough/!”

CHORUS And with a broken wing/ she still sings/ she keeps an eye on the sky/ and with a broken wing/ she carries her dream man you ought to see her fly/

(Verse) Little over four months later and she’s been a little better/ but the doctor just confirmed her fears that she’s due at the end of November/ and when the news hits her it feels like the impact just knocked the wind right outta her/ buries her head in her hands and starts to cry then finds a way to begin to pray and the tears dry away/ looks up and sees a mirror that wasn’t there before it’s a reminder that no matter what happens God will always be there with her/ cracks a smile the first real on in a long while and decides to press charges for a criminal trial/ so a few months pass and her Baby Bump is starting to show up/ shows for court with no plans to abort/ and she sees him standing there acting like he doesn’t care so she walks right over with no fear in her eyes and says: 

BIDGE“Let me be genuine/ I will never let cha win/ even when/ my grin is fadin’ an’/ I feel like I can’t trust any men/ I will never let cha in/ I will make ya pay for your sin/!

PRECHORUS“Misery/ won’t get the best of me/ ‘cause I’m calling, yes I’m calling on your bluff/ misery/ won’t get the best of me/ ‘cause I’m calling, yes I’m calling on your bluff/ throw down the cards I’ve had enough/!”

CHORUS And with a broken wing/ she still sings/ she keeps an eye on the sky/ and with a broken wing/ she carries her dream man you ought to see her fly/

(Verse) She’s layin’ face up on the bed// naked and elated praisin’ herself for what just happened/ so worn out that she can’t even cry/ so beat up that she doesn’t even wanna try/ it started out as the perfect date night without a cloud in the sky/ but it turned into the perfect opportunity to give her lil baby girl her birthright/ and as the doctor passes her to the nurse she takes a second to look back in hindsight cuz now she knows why tha hell she hadta trust that guy/ finally able to shake the memory of feelin’ vulnerable layin’ in the middle of that pitch black back alley/ sees the doctor about to hand her, her little miracle so she puts the exhaustion and pain aside/ there’s no disguise that could hide the joy in her eyes/ takes a deep breath and puts on a huge smile just tryna rile every last burst of energy left in her body/ but unfortunately the pregnancy wasn’t easy and she just wasn’t ready/ and now the doctor is sayin’ she’s in a Code Blue emergency/ but with her last burst of energy she looks at her newborn baby and promises

BIDGE“Let me be genuine/ I will never let cha win/ even when/ my grin is fadin’ an’/ I feel like I can’t trust any men/ I will never let cha in/ I will make ya pay for your sin/!

PRECHORUS“Misery/ won’t get the best of me/ ‘cause I’m calling, yes I’m calling on your bluff/ misery/ won’t get the best of me/ ‘cause I’m calling, yes I’m calling on your bluff/ throw down the cards I’ve had enough/!”

CHORUS(X2) And with a broken wing/ she still sings/ she keeps an eye on the sky/ and with a broken wing/ she carries her dream man you ought to see her fly/
