The presence of an eagle is always powerful and inspirational. Linda’s presence in my life is the same. Hers was the encouragement that propelled me into new musical artistry, rekindled my belief, and inspired my voice and heart to sing again. Her faith and love are feathers in the wings she gifts everyone in her life. I am beyond grateful to be one of those people. ~SE

WINGS
Skip Ewing – ©2019 Write! On Music (BMI)

VERSE 1
Linda, you’re the only one I ever thought could see into my pain
Deep enough to understand the cloud I’m often under
All the thunder and the lighting and the rain
You know I do the best I can
Try to see the sun the way you want me to
But when our skies aren’t all that’s blue

CHORUS
You give me wings, offer me hope
Show me my strength, comfort my soul
Open my eyes, and make my heart sing
My spirit flies ‘cause you give me wings

VERSE 2
Linda, I’m amazed to find forgiveness where it’s never been before
You show me a different mirror
One that isn’t looking for the answer and a reason or the door
Only to be that much nearer
Before I even try to tell you how much
You wrap your arms around my gratitude

CHORUS
And give me wings, offer me hope
Show me my strength, comfort my soul
Open my eyes, and make my heart sing
My spirit flies ‘cause you give me wings

BRIDGE
And when it storms we soar above the weather
Race the wind together
For me, the word is “never”
Have I had more faith in love

CHORUS
You give me wings, offer me hope
Show me my strength, comfort my soul
Open my eyes, and make my heart sing
My spirit flies ‘cause you give me wings
My spirit flies

TAG
Linda, quick, run to the window
Think I see the first rays of the sun
