Maxwell Premiere: Countdown to ‘BLACKsummers’night’
A strangely nostalgic and beautiful sentiment for a breakup song, Maxwell sings about meeting "the person of your dreams but at the wrong time" in the first single off his upcoming album.
3. 'Pretty Wings'
'Pretty Wings' Lyrics
Time will bring the real end of our trial
One day there'll be no remnants
No trace no residual feelings within ya
One day u won't remember me
Your face will be the reason I smile
But I will not see what I cannot have forever
I'll always love ya I hope u feel the same
You played me dirty your game was so bad
You toyed with my affliction had to fill out my prescription
Found the remedy I had to set u free
Away from me
To see clearly the way that love can be
When you are not with me
I had to leave, I have to live
I had to leave, I had to live
If I cant have you let love set you free
To fly yo pretty wings around
Pretty wings your pretty wings
Your pretty wings around
I came wrong you were right
Transformed your love into like
Baby believe me; I'm sorry I told you lies
I turned day into night
Sleep till I die a thousand times
I should've showed you
Better nights better times better days
As I miss you more and more
Pretty wings ...
