My world was flat
and he was the edge
He was my dream before I saw him
And I will love him after I’m dead

Black Jacket
shine in the sun
Black Jacket
my only one

The world rolled fast
under his bike
There was no sun before I saw him
and he took the dark right out of night

Black Jacket
shine in the sun
Black Jacket
my only one

I was standing out on your corner
just dreaming like I always do
I was thinking about our night on the hill
and I was hoping I might see you

But when you walked by
I could tell that something was wrong
‘cause there was someone walking with you
and she had your jacket on

I guess you didn’t see me
‘cause when you went inside
I walked over to your bike
and I took it for a drive

When I rode away
the tears rolled down and my face went pale
I made it all the way to the top of the hill
and straight through the rail

My world went black
over the edge
I never fell before I saw him
Now I will love him after I’m dead
