Alkaline Trio
Blackbird
[Verse 1]
She's black and red and built just like a spy plane
Extracting information from my mind
The photographs she take save to a mainframe
For your eyes only lonely cold war time (of mine)

[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 your perch you softly smiled
My Blackbird softly smiled

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

[Pre-Chorus 2]
And all this time there is no crime of 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 your perch you softly smiled
My blackbird softly smiled

[Bridge]
SR-71 Blackbird from the hell above
She's the only one
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 your perch you softly smiled
My blackbird softly smiled

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