Maxwell describes "Pretty Wings" as a bittersweet love song about meeting the right girl at the wrong time.

Verse1

Time will bring the real end of our trial

One day they'll be no remnants

No trace, no residual feelings within ya

One day you 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 you feel the same

Oh, 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 you free

Away from me to see clearly

The way that love can be when you are not with me

I had to leave, I had to live

I had to leave, I had to live

Chorus

If I can't have you let love set you free to fly your pretty wings around

Pretty wings, your pretty wings

Your pretty wings, pretty wings around

Verse 2

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 could have showed you better nights, better times, better days

I miss you more and more

Chorus

If I can't have you let love set you free to fly your pretty wings around

Pretty wings, your pretty wings

Your pretty wings, your pretty wings around

Pretty wings, your pretty wings

Your pretty wings, your pretty wings around

Pretty wings, pretty wings

Pretty wings, your pretty wings around

Pretty wings, your pretty wings around

Pretty wings, your pretty wings around

Pretty wings, your pretty wings around

Pretty wings, your pretty wings around

Pretty wings, your pretty wings around

Pretty wings, your pretty wings around

Pretty wings, your pretty wings around

Find Love!
