One of the songs that really moves me in the movie Beyond the Lights is the song, “Blackbird by Noni.” It speaks to me on a very primal level.

as i dive in without my wings
at the speed of light i’m flying to my end
as i fall without my wings
how i’m the last song the blackbird will sing
i’m free at last, free from you,
free from the past
freedom at last
what is life, other than a cage to me
i’m free at last, free from you
free from the past
freedom at last
what is life, other than a cage to me
blackbird,
oh, blackbird
blackbird
oh, blackbird

now i rise as the phoenix escapes from me
through the fire, through the flames
leaving ashes underneath

i’m free at last, free from you
free from the past
freedom at last
what is life, other than a cage to me
i’m free at last, free from you
free from the past
freedom at last
what is life, other than a cage to me

blackbird
oh blackbird
blackbird
sing one last song for me
yeah blackbird
oh black bird
sing one last song for me
