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 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
You were only waiting for this moment to arise
