dog and butterfly lyrics – heart

“dog and b*tterfly”

there i was with the old man
stranded again so off i’d ran
a young world crashing around me
no possibilities of getting what i need
he looked at me and smiled
said “no, no, no, no, no child.

see the dog and b*tterfly. up in the
air he like to fly.” dog and b*tterfly
below she had to try. she roll back down
to the warm soft ground laughing
she don’t know why, she don’t know why
dog and b*tterfly

well i stumbled upon your secret place
safe in the trees you had tears on your face
wrestling with your desires frozen strangers
stealing your fires. the message hit my mind
only words that i could find
see the dog and b*tterfly
up in the air he like to fly
dog and b*tterfly below she had to try
she roll back down to the warm soft ground
laughing to the sky, up to the sky
dog and b*tterfly

we’re getting older the world’s getting colder
for the life of me i don’t know the reason why
maybe it’s livin’ making us give in
hearts rolling in taken back on the tide
we’re balanced together ocean upon the sky

another night in this strange town
moonlight holding me light as down
voice of confusion inside of me
no begging to go back where i’m free
feels like i’m through
then the old man’s words are true
see the dog and b*tterfly
up in the air he like to fly
dog and b*tterfly, below she had to try
she roll back down to the warm soft
ground with a little tear in her eye
she had to try, she had to try
dog and b*tterfly
