Blackbird

oh blackbird, sitting high up on that ledge
leave your perch and walk with me instead
i’ve been rambling so long

oh blackbird, i’ve been looking for the well
harried my thirst, i fear my feet will fail
don’t know where the road went so wrong

won’t you come down, i just need some eyes to see me
i can’t be alone now, i feel the forest, feel it breathing

oh blackbird, sitting high up in that tree
from my birth, i’ve been growing up in grief
surely, you can’t be so cold

give my word, you wouldn’t become prey
skin for skin, can’t be the only way
hollow, the breath taken in boast

won’t you come down, i just need some eyes to see me
i can’t be alone now, i feel the forest, feel it breathing

oh blackbird (oh blackbird), my blackbird (my blackbird)

won’t you come down, i just need some eyes to see me
i can’t be alone now, i feel the forest, feel it breathing

i’ve been turned round, the shadows look the same, believe me
i can’t be alone now, i hear the forest, hear it weeping
