Lyrics
The Wings To Fly - Peter Bowen (February 2018)

[G] [D] [C] X4

[G] You’re walking to the [D] beat of a different [C] drum and you already know it
[G] Syncopated [D] rhythms in your [C] head
[G] You’re living in an [D] alternate uni[C]verse but you don’t often show it
[G] You rise [D] above it all [C] instead
[Am] And as you [D7] walk along that [G G/F# Em] tightrope wire
[C] You try your [D] hardest to [Em] comply
[C] In truth, the [D] earthly rules, they don’t [G G/F# Em] apply
[C] You’ve already got the wings to [D] fly,
[G] [D] [C] X2

You move through the fair like a summer breeze, tender and healing
A gentle angel all in white
People are drawn to you and hope, you’re on the point of revealing
Why your spirit shines so bright
As you wander through this mortal coil
The slings and arrows you defy
Truth and innocence the perfect foils
You’ve already got the wings to fly,
The wings to fly...
The wings to fly…
[G] [D] [C] [C] x4

Bridge
[Am] Once on a winter’s day, [Em] sky blue and black, [C] I was [D] feeling so [Em] alone,
[C] You came [D] into my life and [G G/F# Em] brought me back,
[C] held my hand and [D] took me home, [D]

Your love is like the deepest red, red rose, always in season
Best seen by candlelight
You invite me gently to your bed, and we don’t need a reason
Once again my heart takes flight
And as we amble through our twilight years, your beauty does the time belie
Together we have faced our fears,
You’ve lifted me up high,
With your wings to fly…
The wings to fly…
The wings to fly…
The wings to fly…

Easy flow to the chord progression. Positive, engaging lyrics. Rich tone to the guitar. Light, warm vocal style. All good!

Roll along
Thanks, Philip. The song does "roll" along. It's just good to be back in writing/recording mode again. Talk soon.

Wings to fly
Quality work, as always, PeterB. The lyrics are special, and your phrasing is just right. I think the word that comes to mind is "forthright." Don't know if that quite captures it, but there it is anyway....

Popped into my head :-)
Thanks, Les. I appreciate the kudos re the lyrics and phrasing. I was playing the opening riff and the first line popped into my head and the rest flowed from there. The song does roll on unerringly so "forthright" is fine by me. Take care.

A Lovely Love Song
Love: The anti-gravity force. It really does have that power, doesn't it, Peter?

It shows in this thoughtful song where it's given your personal recognition. It's a really nice bare bones performance, which makes it all the more poignant. Your rich vocal and guitar performances serve to polish the sentiment.

On a personally striking side note, your tune's opening riff is somewhat similar to one in a song I've had in my job jar for a few years now, although mine differs in its theme and has a more "Country-ish" feel.

I'm thinking... "great musical minds think alike." ;)

Percentage love
Thanks, J.A. I wonder what percentage of all the songs ever written are love songs? Without doubt, what the world needs now - is another love song... :-). I appreciate your kind words.
The main G D C guitar riff grew from a simple Travis Pick to the "rolling" version it ended up as I fiddled round to try and add some life to the chord progression. Great minds :-) Take care.

Diggin the pickin
There is a pop feel underneath. Almost like The Barenaked Ladies. A Canadian band. Well played and crafted Peter.You and Phillip should jin forces and come tour the Canadian summer folk festivals. You would do great!

Revival of the superannuation tour... :-)
Thanks, Stan. I did try and make it roll along a bit and agree it has some pop underpinnings. I need to try and make songs with a bit more of a beat. I can hear drums/bass coming in verse two and a fiddle in there somewhere... I hadn't really locked into BNL but I listened to 4 or 5 songs on Youtube and like what I hear. I will chase them up. Philip and I would love to head over to your neck of the woods and play :-) Take care.
