lyrics

for blackbirds

blackbirds don’t fly so high
come down now don’t ask why
bring back your melodies and rhymes
that slowed down my fast times
you were an angel once i know
with bright wings white as snow

blackbirds, take up this yard
it shouldn’t be too hard
back then the world was still so new
i played god and you played you
so leave me a feather once you go
or a thousand to follow

now we’re so far from home, aren’t we?
so far from home, aren’t we?
blackbird where is your song? aren’t we
so far from home? aren’t we? aren’t we?
aren’t we?
