1992_0901 : Wings Of Desire




“Wings of Desire” was about the dilemma one faces when one is not sure whether to leave the safety of a friendship behind when faced with a chance to discover a more potent relationship with the same person.

When you think love’s lost
But you know love’s on
And you think love’s spent
Every time love’s sent…

If I were very careful
I won’t fall from heaven
Should I stand back in the wings
And just get called?

was the message I had been trying to communicate since 1985, when I was writing my “Porcupine”-era Echo & the Bunnymen songs.
