the crow and the butterfly lyrics – shinedown

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 breathe

[chorus]
just like a crow chasing the b*tterfly
dandelions lost in the summer sky
when you and i were getting high as outer sp*ce,
i never thought you’d slip away
i guess i was just a little too late

your words still serenade me,
your lullabies 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 b*tterfly
dandelions lost in the summer sky
when you and i were getting high as outer sp*ce,
i never thought you’d slip away
i guess i was just a little too late

just like a crow chasing the b*tterfly
dandelions lost in the summer sky
when you and i were getting high as outer sp*ce,
i never thought you’d slip away –

like a crow chasing the b*tterfly
dandelions lost in the summer sky
when you and i were getting high as outer sp*ce,
i never thought you’d slip away
i guess i was just a little too late

just a little too late
