Blackbird 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 singing in the dead of night 
Take these sunken eyes and learn to see 
all your life 
you were only waiting for this moment to be free 
 
Blackbird fly, Blackbird fly 
Into the light of the dark black night. 
 
Blackbird fly, Blackbird fly 
Into the light of the dark black night. 
 
Blackbird 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,oh 
You were only waiting for this moment to arise, oh 
You were only waiting for this moment to arise
