lyrics

Blackbird

It may seem like the end of all
Like everything’s about to fall
What you have done and been through so far
Has left you hurt and covered in scars

I swear I've been through this before
But you’ve got a way to ignore
Now you’re standing still and look to the sky
Answering my questions with lies

Blackbird, in the sleet and the rain humming for your life
You can’t fly ’cause you lost all inside so long ago
Be proud and don’t ever let someone put you down
And don’t hie in your lonesome and broken tree

And no matter what you do, nothing can stop the truth
’Cause sooner or later in life, you will realise
That all the things that you’ve said and done
Was fueled by your anger in time
Still you’re standing still and look to the sky

Yeah, yeah yeah yeah yeah

A whispering voice you recognize is hiding in the dark
It’s speaking to you it’s speaking the truth
Live on fly on
Blackbird, oh

Blackbird, in the sleet and the rain humming for your life
You can’t fly ’cause you lost all inside so long ago
Be proud and don’t ever let someone put you down
And don’t hie in your lonesome and broken tree

Blackbird, live on, fly on
Said I know, I know how it hurts
Yeah, oh said yeah yeah yeah

It may seem like the end of it all
