The Crow And The Butterfly Lyrics

I painted your room at
Midnight, so I'd know
Yesterday was over
I put all your books
On the top shelf,
Even the one with
The four leaf clover
Man, I'm getting older
I took all your pictures
Off the wall and wrapped
Them in a news paper blanket
I haven't slept in what seems
Like a century, and now I can
Barely breate

[Chorus]
Just like a crow chasing the butterfly
dandelions lost in the summer sky
When you and I were getting
High as outter space, I never
Thought you'd slip away
I guess I was just a little too late

You're words still serenade me,
You're allibies won't let me sleep
I've never heard such a haunting
Melody. Oh, it's killing me
You know I can barely breathe

[Chorus]
Just like a crow chasing the butterfly
dandelions lost in the summer sky
When you and I were getting
High as outter space, I never
Thought you'd slip away
I guess I was just a little too late

Just like a crow chasing the butterfly
dandelions lost in the summer sky
When you and I were getting
High as outter space, I never
Thought you'd slip away -

Like a crow chasing the Butterfly
dandelions lost in the summer sky
When you and I were getting
High as outter space, I never
Thought you'd slip away
I guess I was just a little too late

Just a little too late

I started listening to them 4 years ago and liked them. But they didn't become one of my favorite bands until I went and saw them live on Dec. 5th. Brent is one of the best front men in music.Amazing!
