Why you wanna fly, Blackbird? You ain't ever gonna fly No place big enough for holding All the tears you're gonna cry Cause your mama's name was "Lonely" And your daddy's name was "Pain" And they call you "Little Sorrow" Cause you'll never love again So why you wanna fly, Blackbird? You ain't ever gonna fly Why you wanna fly, Blackbird? You ain't ever gonna fly You ain't got no one to hold you You ain't got no one to care If you'd only understand, dear Nobody wants you anywhere So why you wanna fly, Blackbird? You ain't ever gonna fly Why you wanna fly, Blackbird? You ain't ever gonna fly You ain't got no one to hold you You ain't got no one to care So why you wanna fly, Blackbird? You ain't ever gonna fly You ain't ever gonna fly

You say forget you, find me somebody new. It's not that easy, when I placed all my faith in you. I know that I... love you only. And as each day pass, night finds me so lonely. It's a hurting thing, and it's so... un-sensed... Too sad to watch, watch a good love go by. Oh I know... I know that I always think about you. I've grown so used to you, I just cannot... make it without you It's not that easy... forgetting you.

Blue for the blue I feel when I'm feeling down In the ground, feeling down That could be most any day Green for the eyes, take a look around When the sun goes down And the sun goes down in the strangest way Red for the light, gotta stop this thing Find a song to sing that is everything That I meant to say I meant to say Green for the minds that are dry like the world Never see the good that's done the bad It's too late to see Two of us make it easier To read the signs, memorize the lines Won't you stay with me? One for the road, I'll be on my way Come another day when the things we say Find a way to be A way to be Autumn calls for a change of year Bringing winter near, oh I scream "The ground And the skies are fine" Wintertime is a razor blade That the devil made, it's the price we pay For the summertime Spring days come and it's hard to know Where the rain comes from, where the children go It's a nursery rhyme A nursery rhyme

I remember Our first affair All the pain Always rain Around my eyes It'll never happen again It'll never happen again Every time I leave you alone I remember times I couldn't come home It'll never happen again It'll never happen again Why can't you be The way I want you to be Why can't you see You've got to change And love me I remember Our first affair All the pain Always rain Around my eyes It'll never happen again It'll never happen again

She’s wanted Dead or alive Distinguishing features She got cold and shifty eyes She’ll lead you on With her words so soft and sweet She’ll rob you of your pride and then sweep you off your feet She’ll wine and dine you You’re the one to have to pay And you’ll never see her When she makes her get away So beware the stranger Lurking in your town Tall dark and handsome Y’all beware Your heart break down She’s sweet and loving And she’ll steal your breath away She’s a tricky character Like an actor in play Embezzlement and murder Oh these crimes are just a few She’ll steal your heart away Surely steal the love you knew

about

The highly-anticipated and debut album Black Acid Soul, due for its long awaited release on September 3rd via Foundation Music/BMG.

With a voice that has stopped critics in their tracks, Lady Blackbird is a revelatory new talent with music that transcends the jazz scene through which the LA-based artist is rooted. Reflecting influences as varied as Billie Holiday, Gladys Knight, Tina Turner and Chaka Khan, with critics drawing comparisons to Adele, Amy and Celeste, Lady Blackbird’s distinct and beguiling talent is not one to be missed.

Honouring the great's has come as a musical process to Lady Blackbird, having recorded her highly anticipated debut album Black Acid Soul in legendary Studio B (Prince’s room) in Sunset Sound, produced by Grammy-nominated Chris Seefried.

Minimal yet rich, classic yet timely, the album connects backwards to Miles Davis (his pianist, Deron Johnson, plays Steinway Baby Grand, Mellotron and Casio Synth throughout) and forwards to Pete Tong (he made the Bruise mix of ‘Collage’ his Number Two Essential Selection tune of 2020) and, yes, Victoria Beckham – Matthew Herbert’s remix of second single ‘Beware The Stranger’ soundtracked the designer’s Spring/Summer 2020 Fashion show.

Its 11 tracks have a sound, feeling and attitude that speak of Lady Blackbird's deep experiences in music.
