From the recording FRAGILE WINGS - Spiritual

These words were inspired one day, observing a carer, on an outing, with 'special needs' teenagers at my local shopping centre. I found it perplexing that most passersby avoided eye contact and chose to miss the experience; watching these young adults who were so delightfully immersed, moment to moment, in their outing.  Made me wonder why we can't all live with such perpetual joy.
 
In this instance the lyrics came first, followed by Wendy creating a lovely melody to complete the song.

Lyrics

V1
Maybe you feel I don’t shine, quite as bright
Turning away, convinced you’re being polite
But if you try and look through these eyes
You won’t see that same old story
CH
Don’t be scared; don’t stop and stare
No need to stand way over there
Take a chance and show you care
And you’ll hear my spirit sing, beneath these fragile wings
V2
Maybe my mountains are harder to climb
What’s easy for you might-take-me much more time
But feel, like this heart, beating inside of me and
You won’t see that same old story
CH
Don’t be scared; don’t stop and stare
No need to stand way over there
Take a chance and show you care
And you’ll hear my spirit sing, beneath these fragile wings
Bridge
Like you I ache; sometimes I break
I need my time to cry
But even with these fragile wings of mine
I’ll teach you how to fly
CH X2
Don’t be scared; don’t stop and stare
No need to stand way over there
Take a chance and show you care
And you’ll hear my spirit sing
Don’t be scared; don’t stop and stare
No need to stand way over there
Take a chance and show you care
And you’ll hear my spirit sing
Beneath these fragile wings
