lyrics

"Porcelain Wings" by Fabi Behnam

Heaven forgive me, I've fallen from grace. Though I can still taste the wine on my lips, I've buried my faith. I've realized that you have not the time, and I have not the patience to look into her eyes and see only traces remain, how she praises your name. I know we haven't spoken much but I'm begging you, if I could just make you a deal, remove the concrete from her shoes. I know the price we pay and that we've all got dues, but if everyone's a bounty tell me who becomes an angel to you.

Fill my wings with lead, and leave my my feathers to burn. If this is time well spent, why are ashes all that I earn? If your example should teach us a lesson, then I promise that all that we've learned, is we should have spent time cutting corners, using fear as a means to be heard.

Time can learn to wait, cause I'm not giving you up that easily. Life is never late, but death is as early as sunrise, our afternoon's fate.

We've grown accustomed to the ticking, the heartbeats of a clock. Oh how it mocks me, oh how it mocks me.

Oh, the nerve we'll show. Take your love and go. 2x

Time can learn to wait, cause I'm not giving you up that easily. Life is never late, but death is as early as sunrise, our afternoon's fate.
