You say you want out
I know what you mean
I call you 'black bird'
I call you 'dark queen'
The isolation I put you into
Is your protection and safety too

In your eyes, in your wings
There is hunger for skies above high
And I know, and you know
That you could never fly

Have you ever seen the daylight?
Black bird fly
Have you ever seen the rainbow?
Black bird fly
Do you wanna see the moonlight?
Black bird fly
Do you wanna see the rainbow?
Black bird fly

You say I'm crazy
I'm doing strange things
You pine within walls
Although you've got wings

But I know, and you know
That the sunshine's too bright for your eyes
And I know, really know
That this world is too cruel
So think twice

One night, one day
You'll make me cry, you'll fly away
One day, one night
You'll leave me watching your last flight ...
'Cause you could never fly
