all the money in the world couldn't buy me these wings
these wings they sing songs of joy
and at times shatter my fears and bring some heavy black tears
tonight, i will fly away to that place you talked about:
do you remember?
before you died in that dreadful car accident
you had life
you laughed, you sang, you cried and at times you even held my hand
they told us to forget about the past
they told us we couldn't have wings to fly
they lied to us over and over again
and then as we walked by them i whispered in your ear
"all the money in the world couldn't buy me these wings"
