lyrics

I kicked the door so closed
It won't open anymore
I heard the blackbird singing for the last time

And every time I pay that old poet's price
I thank you, babe, for doing me wrong
Thank you road, for making it harder
Thank you love, for leaving me out in the rain
Thank you, for making me pay

I woke at midnight, hazy in a half moon
I watched the white waves break on the coastline
And I'm tossed upon the waves that roll inside

And every time I pay that old poet's price
I thank you, babe, for doing me wrong
Thank you road, for making it harder
Thank you love, for leading me out in the rain
Thank you

Every road that I took
Every song that I sang
Every lover I lost
Every friend who lay dying
Every con I played
Every god that I prayed to
When I felt so crazy, like I was dying

Is a white bird
Rising over me
Now gone, gone, gone

I kicked the door so closed
It won't open anymore
I heard the blackbird singing for the last time
