Like a broken basketball
on a dirty backyard court,
I was unable to roll away
but I have air now

Up this ladder, I keep climbing
trying to reach a little farther
dig my hands into the water
breaking up the storm
(and there she goes)

[chorus]
Blackbird, fly away
into the hollow sky
Blackbird, take me with you
'cause I can't fly
I'll hold on tightly
(but I can't fly)

Looking up , I reach out
stealing falling feathers
as they tumble to the ground
it's strange how they
work so well for you
while slowing me down
(blackbird, I envy you)

(repeat chorus)

I could leave here on my own
if my heart was not so heavy
maybe you can teach me
how to swim in the sky

Blackbird, fly away
into the hollow sky
Blackbird, take me with you
'cause I can't fly
I'll hold on tightly
