Switchblade

Album: If Not Now, When? (2011)
  • I keep getting attacked by
    The girl in the black hat
    The girl in the black hat.

    I can't find any shade but
    I'll be swayed as long as
    I got a switchblade.

    I keep getting the eye from
    The girl in the thigh highs
    The girl in the thing highs.

    With irises of jade are built
    To persuade and they're
    Swift like a switchblade.

    Switchblade, switchblade
    They're swift like a switchblade
    Switchblade

    Nobody wears it like you anymore
    Nobody wears it like you anymore

    Light like a feather
    Bright like a dying star.
    Cut those together
    Girl that is what you are.
    Wild eyes forever
    Built to punish and persuade.
    I like together
    But all I got was a switchblade.
    Switchblade

    So just gimme the facts
    Who's the girl in the black hat
    The girl in the black hat.

    I can't find any shade but
    I'll be swayed as long as
    I've got a switchblade.

    I think I'm getting a rise
    On all her American thighs
    Her American thighs.

    She got her black hat
    And irises of jade
    And I got a switchblade.
    Switchblade
    Yes I've got a switchblade

    Nobody wears it like you anymore
    Nobody wears it like you anymore

    Light like a feather
    Bright like a dying star.
    Cut those together
    Girl that is what you are.
    Wild eyes forever
    Built to punish and persuade.
    I like together
    But all I got was a switchblade.
    Switchblade

    Nobody wears it like you anymore
    Nobody wears it like you

    I keep getting attacked by
    The girl in the black hat
    The girl in the black hat.

    I can't find any shade but
    I'll be swayed as long as
    I got a switchblade.
    Switchblade

    Light like a feather
    Bright like a dying star.
    Cut those together
    Girl that is what you are.
    Wild eyes forever
    Built to punish and persuade.
    I like together
    But all I got was a switchblade.
    Yes I got a switchblade

    Light like a feather
    Bright like a dying star.
    Cut those together
    Girl that is what you are.
    Wild eyes forever
    Built to punish and persuade. Writer/s: Benjamin Lee Kenney, Brandon Charles Boyd, Christopher E Kilmore, Jose Anthony Ii Pasillas, Michael Aaron Einziger
