Emily Plazek – Blackbird lyrics
This song's been a long time coming
Since all love songs began to play
Laughter at the very start
Somehow you knew you'd save my heart

Innocence, naivety
Or cynical reality
Choosing was the death of me
I said “Comedian, please help me”

Cuz I know blackbirds fly everywhere
In snowfall and summer air
No cliffs, no sea could scare them
Their song travels the world's end
Moments of high victory
When all I see's what birds see
Bare skin and pockets empty
Choose love as flight and I'll stay free
As a blackbird,
Just like blackbird,
Like a blackbird,
Oh, blackbird

Blackbird, oh
Blackbird, oh
Blackbird, oh, like a blackbird

This song's been a long time coming
Since ice cream cones and forest dreams
Miles, hours driving
Highway scenes, music diving

And I'm proud to say I love you
Smiled to hear you say "I love you, too"
From years of never flying
To blackbird's life undying

Cuz I know blackbirds fly everywhere
In snowfall and summer air
No cliffs, no sea could scare them
Their song travels the world's end
Moments of high victory
When all I see's what birds see
Bare skin and pockets empty
Choose love as flight and I'll stay free
As a blackbird,
Just like blackbird,
Like a blackbird,
Oh, blackbird

Blackbird, oh
Blackbird, oh

Blackbird, oh, like a blackbird
