As usual, I don’t feel I’ve done justice to my sources, all of which come from ccMixter except the saxophone which is played by enoe and can be found on iBeat at:

Blood swan
The whites of your eyes are red
Blood swan
One look in your eyes I’m dead
I’m on the slide
I’m fading fast
You spread your wings in my chest
Just because she went past
Blood swan

Blood swan
With you long red neck
Blood swan
Like a long red snake
There’s a thread of gold
Running through her blue-black hair
Your wings beat the air
Just because she’s there
Blood swan

Blood swan
With your crimson feet
Blood swan
With your wingspan beat
It’s a tough old crowd
Something old is pulling my strings
I heard the stirring of your wings
Just because she said “How are things?”
Blood swan

Blood swan
From some blood red marsh
Blood swan
Your cry is high and harsh
I hide in the shade
Of an old decayed tree
You almost broke free
Just because she spoke to me
Blood swan
