"Black Sheep"

Music and Lyrics by Rachael Yamagata

From the album TIGHTROPE WALKER out 9/23

 

DON’T TAKE IT PERSONALLY

YOU’VE DONE NOTHING WRONG

YOU’RE RIGHT WHERE YOU SHOULD BE

WE’RE ALL GOING HOME

 

BLACK SHEEP WILL RISE UP

JUST BEFORE THE DAWN

YOU’RE THE ONLY ONE

WHO CAN BREAK THEM DOWN

 

I KNOW THE ROAD HAS BEEN LONG

THEY’RE ON THEIR OWN ROAD TOO

YOU TRY SO HARD TO BE STRONG

EVERYONE WATCHING YOU

 

BLACK SHEEP WILL RISE UP 

JUST BEFORE THE DAWN

YOU’RE THE ONLY ONE

WHO CAN BREAK THEM DOWN

 

I’LL ALWAYS STAY BY YOUR SIDE

FOREVER HOLDING YOUR HAND

YOUR TIME IS COMING TO SHINE

SOON THEY’LL ALL UNDERSTAND

 

BLACK SHEEP WILL RISE UP

JUST BEFORE THE DAWN

YOU’RE THE ONLY ONE

WHO CAN BREAK THEM DOWN

YOU’RE THE ONLY ONE

WHO CAN BREAK THEM DOWN
