  • White bird with a black tail,
    Eyes Dark and face so pale,
    You know what your future holds over your side of the road,

    White bird with a black tail,
    You look like an open sail,
    Made me look up from my shoes.
    To show me what you stand to lose,

    White Bird,
    White Bird,
    With your face so pale
    White Bird
    White bird
    Where'd you get that tail
    White Bird
    White bird
    With a black tail

    White feathers dipped in tar,
    It's hard to tell how old you are,


    Wonderin' how much you know,
    About all of us below,

    Half of you is heavenly,
    Showin off your purity
    The rest of you is from the stream,
    Like a land where they both meet

    White Bird,
    White Bird,
    With your face so pale
    White Bird
    White bird
    Where'd you get that tail
    White Bird
    White bird
    With your face so pale,
    White Bird
    White Bird
    With a black tail... Writer/s: KATIE TUNSTALL, KT TUNSTALL
