Song Lyrics

The heart is a bloom, it shoots up from the stony ground
There’s no room, no space to rent in this town
You’re out of luck, and the reason that you had to care
The traffic is stuck, you’re not moving anywhere
You thought you’d found a friend, to take you out of this place / Always
Someone you could lend a hand in return for grace / Always

It’s a beautiful day
The sky falls you feel like
A beautiful day

You’re on the road, but you got no destination
You’re in the mud, in the maze of her imagination
You love this town, even if that doesn’t ring true
You’ve been all over, and it’s been all over you / Always

It’s a beautiful day
Don’t let it get away
A beautiful day

Touch me
Take me to that other place
Teach me
I know I’m not a hopeless case, oh

See the pan-ins suit you and low
See the pan-in over and over you
See the canyons broken by cloud
See the tuna fleets clearing the sea out
See the Bedouin fires at night
See the oil fields at first light and
See the bird with the leaf in her mouth
After the flood all the colors came out

It was a beautiful day
Don’t let it get away
Beautiful day

Touch me
Take me to that other place
Teach me
I know I’m not a hopeless case

What you don’t have you don’t need it now
What you don’t know you can feel it somehow
What you don’t know you don’t need it now, don’t need it now
Beautiful day, oh
Beautiful day

Blackbird singing in the dead of night
Take these swollen eyes and learn to see
All your life
You have just been waiting
For this moment to arise
Blackbird fly
