lyrics

Blackbird

oh blackbird, sitting high up in that ledge

leave your perch and walk with me instead

i’ve been rambling so long



oh blackbird, i’ve been looking for the well

harried my thirst, i fear my feet will fail

don’t know where the road went so wrong



won’t you come down, i just need some eyes to see me

i can’t be alone now, i feel the forest, feel it breathing



oh blackbird, sitting high up in that tree

from my birth, i’ve been growing up in grief

surely, you can’t be so cold



give my word, you wouldn’t become prey

skin for skin, can be the only way

hollow, the breath taken in boast



won’t you come down, i just need some eyes to see me

i can’t be alone now, i feel the forest, feel it breathing



oh blackbird (oh blackbird), my blackbird (my blackbird)



won’t you come down, i just need some eyes to see me

i can’t be alone now, i feel the forest, feel it breathing



i’ve been turned round, the shadows look the same. believe me

i can’t be alone now, i hear the forest, hear it weeping

Drover shy’s music is characterized by visceral storytelling and strong acoustic guitar-driven rhythms. Influenced by the nature's haunt, the workers toil, and the darker side of human proclivities, their music is sharp, catchy, and quietly eerie. ... more
