"Wings" is the ending song for "Black and White" of RWBY, serves as the ending song for the Volume 1 DVD/Blu-ray, and is incorporated in the RWBY: Volume 1 Soundtrack.

CompositionEdit

"Wings" is a rather slow and soft piano-centric song, though later verses feature a more rich and layered sound. The pre-chorus sections ("Don't be disappointed...") feature only very soft piano work, while the choruses, by contrast, are louder and feature guitar, drums, bass and strings.

LyricsEdit

One life,
Is not a long time,
When you're waiting,
For a small sign.

Patience,
Is hard to find.
Shadows,
Seem to fill your life.

Don't be disappointed,
Don't let your heart break.
Don't spend another minute,
In this way.
It's okay.

Dry your eyes now, baby;
Broken wings won't hold you down.
You'll take flight soon, baby.
You'll be lifted up,
And you'll be there

Twelve hours,
Is a long night.
When you're searching,
With no hope in sight.

Aimless,
On the inside;
And the damage,
Makes you want to hide.

I know that it seems pointless,
I know that it feels fake.
I know you can't stand the thought of,
Being stray,
One more day.

Dry your eyes now, baby;
Broken wings won't hold you down.
You'll take flight soon, baby.
You'll be lifted up,
And you'll be there.

TriviaEdit

  • The song appears to be about Blake Belladonna; the music from the song is first heard in "The Stray" after she briefly leaves Team RWBY. Also, the song talks about a person being "stray", which would seemingly reference Blake having strayed from her team.
  • "Wings" was one of the songs performed live at RTX 2014 at the RWBY Music panel.
