Sally Sparrow
I wrote you a letter
To make you feel better
’bout the fact that I’m gone
I may be stuck in the past
But my future is vast
Don’t go looking for me
Girl, you’ve got to go on
Don’t think he’s taking to you
He’s just on the tv
Well look past the Easter Egg
And see the reality
A world of time and space
Inside a funny blue box
The angels are approaching
And the front door is locked

So don’t blink
I said, don’t blink
Just look directly at them
And they’ll stay where they are
I think they’re crying anyway
They can’t mean no harm
my eyes are watering
I’m right on the brink
I’m sure nothing would happen
If I were to-

The doctor isnt here this time
This wont be a breeze
He’s stuck in 1969
On your dvds
Just listen very carefully
To what he’s got to say
Do not turn your back on them
And don’t look away
If they get inside the tardis
Then the sun will go out
Just go down to the cellar
And show them what you’re about
They move faster than
You could ever beleive
Dont let the light go out
And dont be naive

Just don’t blink
I said, don’t blink
Just look directly at them
And they’ll stay where they are
I think they’re crying anyway
They can’t mean no harm
my eyes are watering
I’m right on the brink
I’m sure nothing would happen
If I were to-

The future’s coming quickly
So please dont be scared
The answers will find you
Just make sure you’re prepared
When you see the doctor
Then youll work out the link
But even though its ended
Please be sure not to blink

    General CommentThis song recounts the events of series 3, episode 10 of the revived Doctor Who series. "Blink" is the title of the episode, which was written by Stephen Moffet.

    (SPOILER ALERT)
    Sally Sparrow is the episode's protagonist. The first verse is a letter from her friend, who is sent back in time by aliens called "Weeping Angels" at the beginning of the episode. The Easter Egg mentioned in this song is a message from the Doctor hidden in Sparrow's DVD collection. This message explains that the Doctor and his companion are stuck in the year 1969, and Sparrow must send the TARDIS (the "funny blue box") to them before the Weeping Angels break into it and absorb the Heart of the Tardis. The sun going out is one of the possible consequences of this absorption. He explains that the Angels are impossibly fast, but they are "quantum locked", meaning that they turn to stone when seen. Sparrow is only safe as long as she doesn't blink.

    I think that about covers it... God, I love filk.
