Blackbird

This song is by Third Day and appears…

Blackbird, why you wearing that frown?
Don't you know Jesus loves you and me
And the preacher on T.V. you're putting down

Blackbird, how I love to hear your songs
I could spend all of my time in the shade
Of the trees and listen all day long
Oh yeah
I could listen all, all day long

But you're ever hearing, never understanding
Ever seeing, not perceiving and your heart
Has grown callous
You're in a storm and lost your way
Won't you fly to heaven and be saved today

Blackbird, now you've broken your wings
You try to fly high but you know that you
Can't go anywhere, you can't do anything

Blackbird, who put you in your cage
Tell me, was it God or was it you
Was it me? I guess it don't matter anyway
No, no, it don't matter anyway

But you're ever hearing, never understanding
Ever seeing, not perceiving and your heart
Has grown callous
You're in a storm and lost your way
Won't you fly to heaven and be saved today
Oh, yeah, Blackbird, yeah

You say you need a remedy
for the thorn in your pride
I think it's such a tragedy
That you have left Him behind

You say you'd light your candle
But your love light doesn't shine
You say you talk to angels
Well I say it's such a lie
Yes, it is now such a lie, lie, lie, lie, lie, lie

But you're ever hearing, never understanding
Ever seeing, not perceiving and your heart
Has grown callous
You're in a storm and lost your way
Won't you fly to heaven and be saved today
Oh, yeah, Blackbird, yeah
