Queen V – Broken Wings

On November 3rd, 2016 Queen V performed at the New York Asian Women’s Center benefit gala, giving her rendition of the Mr. Mister classic “Broken Wings.”  As a long time supporter of NYAWC, now known as Womankind, V recorded the song with her band during the Fall of 2016 in partnership with Conclave Studios, hoping to raise not only funds, but also awareness of the organization. The track is available via iTunes, QueenV.com and other digital outlets now, and 100% of Queen V’s proceeds from the track will be donated to Womankind. V’s Bridges Tour made its final stop of 2016 on November 25th when she held her annual Black Friday concert at Rockwood Music Hall in NYC.

Lyrics

BROKEN WINGS
(Richard Page, Steve George, John Lang)

Baby, don’t understand
Why we can’t just hold on to each other’s hands?
This time might be the last I fear
Unless I make it all too clear I need you so, oh

Take these broken wings
And learn to fly again, learn to live so free
When we hear the voices sing
The book of love will open up and let us in
Take these broken wings

Baby, I think tonight
We can take what was wrong and make it right
Baby, it’s all I know that you’re half of the flesh
And blood that makes me whole
Yeah I need you so

Take these broken wings
And learn to fly again, learn to live so free
When we hear the voices sing
The book of love will open up and let us in
Take these broken wings
You got to learn to fly, learn to live and love so free
When we hear the voices sing
The book of love will open up for us and let us in, yeah yeah

Let us in
Woah Woah Woah
Let us in

Baby, it’s all I know
That you’re half of the flesh and blood that makes me whole
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

So take these broken wings
And learn to fly again, learn to live so free
When we hear the voices sing
The book of love will open up and let us in
Take these broken wings
You got to learn to fly, learn to live and love so free
When we hear the voices sing
The book of love will open up for us and let us in, yeah yeah

Let us in
Woah Woah Woah
Let us in, yeah
