Blackbird
[Verse 1]
Dressed in robes of white
But these aren’t wedding bells
That strike the hour of our love
So dance, dance for the master
Cause it’s not peace we’ve found
Just one knife dropping for above

[Chorus]
Brother won’t you come
Brother won’t you come
Brother come to the potter’s grave
Sister don’t you run
Sister don’t you run
Sister don’t you run, run away
Cause Blackbird sings today

[Verse 2]
We walk through the valley
Of shadows cast on walls
So eyes down cause you don’t wanna fall
We walk through the darkness
And pray for light to come
But we can’t find our house of god

[Chorus]
Brother won’t you come
Brother won’t you come
Brother come to the potter’s grave
Sister don’t you run
Sister don’t you run
Sister don’t you run, run away
Cause Blackbird sings today

[Bridge]
La-la-la-la-la-la
La-la-la-la-la-la
La-la-la-la-la-la
La-la-la-la-la-la

[Verse 3]
Lay down before the master
Cause he needs blood for all
[Chorus 2]
Brother won’t you come
Brother won’t you come
Brother come to the potter’s grave
Sister don’t you run
Sister don’t you run
Sister don’t you run, run away
Yea
Brother won’t you come
Brother won’t you come
Brother come to the potter’s grave
Sister don’t you run
Sister don’t you run
Sister don’t you run, run away
Cause Blackbird sings today
