Flutterbye

You can never hold a butterfly, like you or I

 

I can feel tha wings gently brushing against my skin

I put my hand on my belly, yeah I can feel them

Waking from a slumber coz tha time is here

A mixture of emotions, excitement and fear

Dancing up around my heart I never thought tha day would come

I’d feel tha flutter of tha butterflies of loving someone

Always treated like gutter, never good enough to shine

Staying outta everybody’s way, them staying outta mine

I only did angry like a child often does

Took it with me when I grew up didn’t wanna be loved

Until I felt tha flutter whenever you were in my space

And yeah I wanted to hit ya, but with my lips upon ya face

Trust never come easy, I had to decide,

Whether to blow my cover let you into my life

And so I did, how could I have gone and got it so wrong

Coz you left on a breeze and tha damage was done.

---x--- 

I took these broken wings, and I learnt me to fly again

You coming back...can change my world

But you can’t take my now till then

When tha sky...Calls out ya name

And you hear those voices sing

I hope heaven...Lets you in

But I won’t let you in again.

---x--- 

Six years later on tha breeze ya came back

Phoning to apologise, why d’ya go and do that

Scratching at tha scar, opening tha wound

I saw you again and my heart went boom

I could hear fat Larry’s band singing in my head zoom

You hadn’t changed, I knew it was bad

I’d changed along tha way been tha best I ever had

But love makes ya crazy coz ya wanna believe

---x--- 

Tha one looking in ya eyes would never deceive ya

Not again, not a friend, they’d consider what ya needing

Not cut and run and leave ya there bleeding

How low can ya go, how cruel can you be

Ya musta not had no respect for me

Once is a mistake, twice is a joke

If ya thinking bout a hat trick baby no hope

---x--- 

I took these broken wings, and I learnt me to fly again

You coming back...can change my world

But you can’t take my now till then

When tha sky...Calls out ya name

And you hear those voices sing

I hope heaven...Lets you in

But I won’t let you in again.

---x--- 

It dont matter now what ya gotta say say say say

It dont matter now it’s over anyway way way

Baby cried wolf

And I ain’t coming back again, not this time

---x--- 

I took these broken wings, and I learnt me to fly again

You coming back...can change my world

But you can’t take my now till then

When tha sky...Calls out ya name

And you hear those voices sing

I hope heaven...Lets you in

But I won’t let you in again.

---x--- 

I love ya now as I did then, but I wont let you in again
