Black Bird

They woke up this morning and there it was
A little black bird who came here because
We needed a story, we needed a song
To keep our hearts singing when the road is long
And he sang...
We're all in this together
We all came to help each other
To play the game until the end
Our journey will never end
So every day is the beginning
Every moment fresh and new
You have helped me before now
I'm here to help you remember how to sing
Remember how to fly
We're part of everything
And love will never die
And when the road is hard and your heart is full of doubt
Remember me and what I said this game is all about
And pass this message along, in song, in story and word
Remember the truth that came to you through a little black bird
And with that he flew and disappeared into the great blue sky
And although it seems he's gone we cannot see him with our eyes
He is always in our hearts, making them fly into the sky
Blackbird
Remember how to sing
Remember how to fly
We're a part of everything
And love will never die
