"Blackbird" as written by and John K. Wozniak....
Blackbird came to me
She sang her melody
Yeah, she sang
I promise you I won't fly away

Blackbird tell no lies
Blackbird, you caught my eye
But the Raine has taught me that you will fly away
Just as soon as the skies turn gray

Thank you, Raine
Thank you, Raine
Wash away all my pain
Every time I call your name

Blackbird in my pie
Beautiful clouds
Beautiful skies today
You'll chase them until your dying day

Thank you, Raine
Thank you, Raine
Wash away all my shame
Every time I call your name

When I'm sad you soothe my soul
You give love like it's easy, yeah
Come this springtime all your seeds they grow
When Blackbirds come and go

Blackbird, tell no lies
Blackbird, tell no lies
Blackbird, tell no lies
Blackbird, tell no lies
Thank you Raine for clearing my eyes

    Song MeaningThis song is about Woz's (singer) wife Raine. They were divorced but recently got back together. The "Blackbird" refers to other women Woz met along the way.
    "Blackbird, tell no lies
    Blackbird, you caught my eye
    But the rain
    Has taught me that you will fly away
    Just as soon as the skies turn gray"
    That refers basically how the other women just flee as soon as things start to turn sour but Raine would be there through anything. "thank you rain for clearing my eyes" hes like, "duh thank you for being you" he explained this on stage in Raleigh back in August. I loved the song a ton before, but when he explained everything it made the song 100 times better.
