lyrics

I look up to the little bird
that glides across the sky
he sings the clearest melody
it makes me want to cry
it makes me want to sit right down
and cry, cry, cry
I walk along the city streets
so dark with rage and fear
and I, I wish that I could be that bird
and fly away from here
I wish I had the wings to fly away from here
but my, my I feel so low
my, my, where do I go?
my, my, what do I know?
my, my, we reap what we sow
they always said that you knew best but
this little bird's fallen out of that nest now
I've got a feeling that it might have been blessed so
I've just got to put these wings to test
for I am just a troubled soul
who's weighted...
weighted to the ground
give me the strength to carry on
till I can lay my burden down
give me the strength to lay this burden down
down, down, yeah
give me the strength to lay it down
but my, my I feel so low
my, my, where do I go?
my, my, what do I know?
my, my, we reap what we sow
they always said that you knew best but
this little bird's fallen out of that nest now
I've got a feeling that it might have been blessed so
I've just got to put these wings to test

blackbird singing in the dead of night
take these broken wings and learn to fly
all your life
you were only waiting for this moment to arise

blackbird singing in the dead of night
take these sunken eyes and learn to see
all your life
you were only waiting for this moment to be free

blackbird fly, blackbird fly
into the light of the dark black night

blackbird fly, blackbird fly
into the light of the dark black night

blackbird singing in the dead of night
take these broken wings and learn to fly
all your life
you were only waiting for this moment to arise
