Beatles, The - Blackbird Lyrics

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

Blackbird 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

Black bird fly, black bird fly
Into the light of the dark black night

Black bird fly, black bird 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
You were only waiting for this moment to arise
You were only waiting for this moment to arise

Beatles, The Blackbird Comments
  1. Itemtotem

    the beatles were helping to summon the god of chaos into the world
    'come together' is about The Four Horsemen Ritual
    blackbird is also music/magick ritual
    blackbird is a raven and the harbinger of death
    they were summoning the spirit of the night into the world through their lyrics (fly into the 'line' of a dark black knight)

    That foot tapping isn’t actually foot tapping, it’s actually a metronome


    An example of why Northern England is the better part of England. This group couldn’t have been formed by a committee of suits, like all these one-hit-wonder boy bands

  14. Zack Zallie

    RIP Kobe Bryant you are the blackbird set free flying

  27. HotWeeb

    I appreciate the Beatles so much. This song was my grandma's favorite song, and it was played at her funeral last year. She raised me and my brother like a second mom and I love her so much for that. Every time I listen to this I can't help but cry. I know its weird to be sharing this to a YouTube comment, but I guess I felt like sharing today. I hope more bands come out with masterpieces like this. Thanks for reading this comment and have a good day everyone. And make sure to appreciate every moment with your family before its too late, because I really regret a lot that I didn't tell her.

  56. B Hitt

    I once met Paul while standing in line at a Taco Bell in N.Augusta during Master's week, I stood there thinking to myself ...Is this really him? He smiled as if he knew what was going on in my head,lol there I was a 17yr old chap standing with a legend,he looks over and says "Do you know you look like Mel Gibson?....we had a good laugh,this was a common response I received from people those days....I look at him with a deep stare and ask him if he knows who he looks like? SMILING! He replies Paul McCartney? We laughed once more and said goodbye...such a cool man,God bless you Paul


    One of my lifetime dreams is to meet him when his feet is still touching the earth

    I’m sorry John but fuck this Paul McCarthy write this song before it was a poem of his so it should be Paul McCarthy and John Lennon and no I don’t hate John Lennon I think he’s Was a good performer and was a great songwriter it just get on my nerves that half of the songs Paul McCarthy writes Sean get first credit like hey Jude for a sample like why in the hell John will write a whole damn song about his son don’t fear The man your father become because not everybody turned out to be their parents like hey son cheer up kid don’t be afraid you’re not gonna be like me of course I did cheated on your mother and I’m going to leave ya and we’re not gonna have a amazing relationship and one day you’ll be in your 50s and still not married or had children for a lot of reasons and one of them is me PS it’s nothing wrong if you don’t have children and are in your 50s so here Julian A whole freaking song to make you feel better about yourself take a sad song and make it better the hell it was Paul not John once again it should be Paul McCartney and John Lennon Oh yeah fuck Yoko

    Cool song, but I can't believe I got demonetized for playing a, "copyrighted" song that Windows even says is public domain. The song is Luckybirds by Marcus Ulger, btw.
