Jeff Black – Bless My Soul lyrics

I know why the blackbird sings
His strange and mournful song on a summer's night
I know why the spirit brings
Us back into this world until we get it right

I'm on a roll
And I begin to see the light
Bless my soul
I've been around so many times
I know why the baby cries
It's way into the arms of a mother's love
I know why true love survives(
And it is more than the red hot fire of another's touch

I'm on a roll
And I am not afraid to fight
Bless my soul
On a long hot summer's night

I see fair to warn you
That there's nothing here to stop me
(From drowning in the darkness
Of the things I can't control
The angel near my heaven
Who I know will always haunt me
Is constant and convincing
I've a long long way to go

I know why the day is long
When there is no one to talk to about my dreams
I know when the evening comes
That I will know the song of desire that the blackbird sings

I'm on a roll
And I am not afraid to fight
Bless my soul
I've been around so many times
