Blackbird singin' in the dead of night
Take these broken wings and learn to fly
All your life
You were only waitin' for this moment to arise

Blackbird singin' in the dead of night
Take these sunken eyes and learn to see
All your life
You were only waitin' for this moment to be free

Blackbird fly, blackbird fly
Into the light of the dark black night, yeah, [Incomprehensible]
Fly, blackbird, fly
[Incomprehensible]

Blackbird singing in the dead of night, well, well
Take these broken wings and learn to fly
All your life [Incomprehensible]

You were only waiting for this moment to arise, yeah
You were only waiting for this moment to arise, well yeah
You were only waiting for this moment to arise, yeah, yeah, yeah

Fly on blackbird, fly on
Sing on, sing on

[Incomprehensible] sing on black bird
Sing on black bird, sing on
Sing on black bird, sing on
You were only waiting for this moment to arise
