Paper Wings is the first single of British alternative band Fenix. It was released in August of 2013.


The song was written and sung by lead singer Klaire de Lys.  It describes her challenges with dyslexia and doesn't conform to the usual style of music, which was the main goal set by Fenix.


It's not that I am stupid,

It's not that I don't care,

I try and try and try again

They tell me life's not fair

I know my wings are broken,

why should I stand and try?

if all they do is tell me,

I'm far too dumb to fly

Your paper wings are broken

but I will somehow learn to stand and fly again
