Blackbird

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

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

Fly

please give me
a second grace
please give me
a second face
i've fallen far down
the first time around
now i just sit
on the ground
in your way

Fly

now if it's time
to recompense
for what's done
come, come sit down
on the fence in the sun
and the clouds will roll
by and we'll never deny
it's really too hard
for to fly

Fly

please tell me
your second name
please play me
your second game
i've fallen so far
for the people you are
i just need your star
for a day

Fly

so come, come ride
in my streetcar by the bay
for now i must know
how fine you are in your way
and the sea sure as i
but she won't need to cry
for it's really too hard
for to fly

I Wish

i can hardly move
and i sure can't groove
and i can hardly see why I'm so afraid
and the days are long
i can't get rid of what's wrong
it's plain to see
but the problem is, is, is in me

i wish i were
a singer
a dancer
dancing for your love

am i somewhere in the middle
do i count at being special
is there a sincerity in anything i say
do i know what anything means
can i see

I Were

i listen to the radio
not music but the talk shows
i watch a lot of pbs and bbc
i don't want to meet the press
i'm scared, i'm scared of what i see
the only thing i recognize
is the pain in my side
and the hunger that i feel
is the only thing that is real

i wish i were
a singer
a dancer
dancing for your love

See Emily

emily tries but misunderstands
she's often inclined
to borrow somebody's dreams
till tomorrow

there is no other day
let's try it another way
you'll lose your mind and play
free games for may
see emily play

soon after dark emily cries
gazing through trees
in sorrow hardly a sound
till tomorrow
