butterfly lyrics – ataris

yesterday i went outside
with my momma’s mason jar
caught a lovely b*tterfly

when i woke up today
looked in on my fairy pet
she had withered all away
no more sighing in her breast

i’m sorry for what i did
i did what my body told me to
i didn’t mean to do you harm
every time i pin down
what i think i want it slips away
her ghost slips away

smell you on my hand for days
i can’t wash away your scent
if i’m a dog then you’re a b*tch

i guess you’re as real as me
baby, i can’t live with that
baby, i need fantasy
life of chasing b*tterfly

i’m sorry for what i did
i did what my body told me to
i didn’t mean to do you harm
every time i pin down
what i think i want it slips away
her ghost slips away

i told you i would return
when the robin makes his nest
but i ain’t never coming back

i’m sorry, i’m sorry, i’m sorry…
