Packed up all my cares and woes
Here I go soft and low
Bye, bye, black bird 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

Black bird sing in the dead of night
Take these sunken eyes and learn to see
All your life, your were only waiting for this moment to be free
Black bird fly, Black bird fly
Into the light of the black dark night

Black bird fly, black bird fly
Into the light of the dark black

Black bird 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 arrive

Make my bed, and light the light I'll be home late tonight
Black bird, bye, bye
