Alkaline Trio – Blackbird lyrics
[Verse 1]
She's black and red and built just like a spy plane
Extracting information from my mind
The photographs she takes into her mainframe
For your eyes only lonely cold war time

[Pre-Chorus 1]
Now after all the city falls just like the night or an angel does

[Chorus]
Leave me here alone to collect my things
She sees music in the terror she brings
And like a technicolor dream
The light in your eyes blinded me
From the perch she softly smiled
My blackbird softly smiled

[Verse 2]
She's built for speed and made for keeping secrets
Stark and dark against enemy skies
For miles above the earth no-one could detect her
My blackbird blows a kiss that ends mankind

[Pre-Chorus 2]
And all this time there is no crime or treason that she hasn't seen

[Chorus]
Leave me here alone to collect my things
She sees music in the terror she brings
And like a technicolor dream
The light in your eyes blinded me
From the perch she softly smiled
My blackbird softly smiled

[Bridge]
SR-71 Blackbird from the heaven above
She's the only one
The only spy I ever loved
She's the only spy I ever loved

[Pre-Chorus]
Now after all the city falls just like the night or an angel does

[Chorus]
Leave me here alone to collect my things
She sees music in the terror she brings
And like a technicolor dream
The light in your eyes blinded me
From the perch she softly smiled
My blackbird softly smiled

[Outro]
SR-71 Blackbird from the heaven above
She's the only one
Only spy I ever loved
