Give Me Wings
Rhonda Fleming/Don Schilitz
He asked her,
"What gifts can I bring you,
To prove that my love for you is true,
I wanna make you mine forever,
There's nothing on this earth I would not do."

She said,
"Anything I've wanted you have given willingly,
So now there's only one more thing I need,
If you love me, give me wings.
Don't be afraid if I fly,
A bird in a cage will forget how to sing
If you love me, give me wings."

He walked over to the window,
Silently stared into space.
He said, "I just want to protect you,
Cause this world is a dangerous place."

She put her arms around him,
She said, "I know you mean well,
But there's lessons I must learn for myself.
If you love me, give me wings.
Don't be afraid if I fly,
A bird in a cage will forget how to sing
You can trust me, give me wings."

She said,
"Up above the clouds you can see forever
And I know you and I could learn to fly together.
If you love me, give me wings.
Don't be afraid if I fly
A bird in a cage will forget how to sing
You can trust me, give me wings,
If you really love me, give me wings,
Give me wings."
