BEAUTIFUL SOUTH


Blackbird On The Wire Lyrics

Eyes to take you dancing
mouth to leave your wife
Legs to run away with
and you wonder why?
Heart that makes you bypass
every other girl
Smile that keeps you grinning
at the madness of this world
But like the blackbird on the wire
I will not take prey on you
You wouldn't want me to
For I am too soft for such a thing
And like the blackbird on the wire
I just watch you by
The tears I knew I'd cry
Fall unnoticed down below
Front to make you happy
back to make you weep
Lips to keep you kissing
whilst everyone's asleep
Tears to break a backbone
laughs to win a war
And people come and ask me
what I love you for
But like the blackbird on the wire
I will not take prey on you
You wouldn't want me to
For I am too soft for such a thing
And like the blackbird on the wire
I just watch you by
The tears I knew I'd cry
Fall unnoticed down below
And with a tongue built from quicksilver
and a character of steel
They actually come and ask me
How I feel
But like the blackbird on the wire
I will not take prey on you
You wouldn't want me to
For I am too soft for such a thing
And like the blackbird on the wire
I just watch you by
The tears I knew I'd cry
Fall unnoticed down below
