BUTTERFLY

VERSE 1
SAW A BUTTERFLY TOUCH A BUDDLEIA
HELD OUR BREATH AND DIDN’T STIR
A TEAR ROLLED DOWN YOUR CHEEK BUT WE
DIDN’T DARE TO BLINK
IN CASE IT FLEW AWAY

CHORUS 1
AS THE SUN BURNT RED ACROSS THE SKY
I LIFTED YOU UP ON MY SHOULDERS HIGH
OAK AND ASH AND ELM AND FIR
CRYSTAL CLEAR JUST WHO WE WERE

VERSE 2
I REMEMBER CLIMBING TREES
YOU COULD TASTE THAT WOODLAND BREEZE
THE ENERGY RAN FREE
IT LEAPT RIGHT OUT OF ME
IN TO MY WORLD

CHORUS 2
AS THE SUN BURNT RED ACROSS THE SKY
SIMPLY BEING FORGOT THE TIME
ANCIENT FACES IN THE TREES
MAKING SO MUCH SENSE OUT OF YOU AND ME

VERSE 3
BREATH HUNG LIKE CLOUDS IN THE AIR
SURROUNDING BUTTERFLY STILL SITTING THERE
TEARS FELL ON THE GROUND
BUT WE DIDN’T MAKE A SOUND
IN CASE IT FLEW AWAY
END
(IN CASE IT ALL) FLEW AWAY (repeats)
