Wings Chords

   
G#                                               E
I was seven years old, when I got my first pair
And I stepped outside
                  B7                                     Eb
And I was like, Momma, this air bubble right here, itís gonna make me fly
I hit that court, and when I jumped, I jumped, I swear I got so high
I touched the net, Mom I touched the net, this is the best day of my life
Air Maxes were next
That air bubble, that mesh
The box, the smell, the stuffin, the tread, in school
I was so cool
I knew that I couldnít crease Ďem
My friends couldnít afford Ďem
Four stripes on their Adidas
On the court I wasnít the best, but my kicks were like the pros
Yo, I stick out my tongue so everyone could see that logo
Nike Air Flight, but bad was so dope
And then my friend Carlosí brother got murdered for his fours, whoa
See he just wanted a jump shot, but they wanted a Starter coat though
Didnít wanna get caught, from Genesee Park to Othello
You'd get clowned for those Pro Wings, with the velcro
Those were not tight
I was trying to fly without leaving the ground, cause I wanted to be like Mike, right
Wanted to be him
I wanted to be that guy, I wanted to touch the rim
I wanted to be cool, and I wanted to fit in
I wanted what he had, America, it begins

Chorus:
I want to fly
Can you take me far away
Give me a star to reach for
Tell me what it takes
And Iíll go so high
Iíll go so high
My feet wonít touch the ground
Stitch my wings
And pull the strings
I bought these dreams
That all fall down

We want what we canít have, commodity makes us want it
So expensive, damn, I just got to flaunt it
Got to show Ďem, so exclusive, this that new shit
A hundred dollars for a pair of shoes I would never hoop in
Look at me, look at me, Iím a cool kid
Iím an individual, yea, but Iím part of a movement
My movement told me be a consumer and I consumed it
They told me to just do it, I listened to what that swoosh said
Look at what that swoosh did
See it consumed my thoughts
Are you stupid, donít crease Ďem, just leave Ďem in that box
Strangled by these laces, laces I can barely talk
Thatís my air bubble and Iím lost, if it pops
We are what we wear, we wear what we are
But see I look inside the mirror and think Phil Knight tricked us all
Will I stand for change, or stay in my box
These Nikes help me define me, and Iím trying to take mine, off

Chorus:
I want to fly
Can you take me far away
Give me a star to reach for
Tell me what it takes
And Iíll go so high
Iíll go so high
My feet wonít touch the ground
Stitch my wings
And pull the strings
I bought these dreams
That all fall down

They started out, with what I wear to school
That first day, like these are what make you cool
And this pair, this would be my parachute
So much more than just a pair of shoes
Nah, this is what I am
What I wore, this is the source of my youth
This dream that they sold to you
For a hundred dollars and some change
Consumption is in the veins
And now I see itís just another pair of shoes
