Jailbird Songtext

My girl Jailbird, tonight she won't be home.
Jailbird, Jailbird, in her box alone..
See-through walls and collect calls,
No footsteps to fill your halls.

My girl, Jailbird, thinkin' I'll be mad.
Jailbird, Jailbird, key under the mat
She eats out, she's quittin' drugs
Nothing left to kill those bugs.

Jailbird, Jailbird, but it ain't black and white.
She's innocent as peppermint, to this I'll testify.

Broke your body and pulled your hair,
took your best shoes.
Left you in folded sheets, mattress abused

My girl's a Jailbird,
never thought I'd say the words.

Jailbird, Jailbird, but it ain't black and white.
She's innocent as the day we met, this I'd testify.
They took her and she's not the same,
and they took my place: her ball and chain,
and I wanna get her out but I can't ruin what we're about...

Oh Jailbird, I was a jailbird,
it's never black and white.
I'm innocent as the bars I bent,
to this I'll testify.
