Back in the lab I’m running the test
If you won’t fly then I won’t rest
Turbines turning in the tunnel of love
Upon that perch sits my dove
Built for stealth like a silent blade
My cobalt queen adorned in jade
Navy seal but Air Force-made
Please be true, the things you’ll do
Hear my siren sound her bell
Your heart belongs to someone else
Sapphire spy you were built for war
My best girl a government whore
I should have known that’s what you’d be
I set you up they set you free
How could you do this to me?
Like a shrew the tramp just flew
Years go by and I get no sign
Until one day by chance I find
Blackbird, Valkyrie standing in place
Between their wings - familiar face
Oblong dame - a museum piece
Eternally posed for eyes that feast
Home at last with cousin and niece
But once I knew the other you
