black brick road lyrics – lake of tears

i met a blackbird flying south tonight, i looked into her eyes tonight
i saw her wings were getting tired, still looking for the light
there is evil on the way, it will come with break of day
i heard her say before she turned and flew away
but for a moment there alone i could find my way back home

how it hurts still there when she comes to show
she’s always near down the black brick road

i watched her heading for the southern skies when she lost her wings and died
but then i saw her flying higher when i looked into her eyes
there is evil on the way, i heard the blackbird say
it will reach us by the coming of the day
but for a moment there alone i was heading back for home

how it hurts still there when she comes to show
she’s always near down the black brick road
