  • Silver and gold and it's growing cold
    Autumn leaves lay as thick as thieves
    Shivers down your spine chill you to the bone
    'Cause the mandolin wind is the melody that turns

    your heart to stone
    The heat of your breath carving shadow on the mist
    Every angel has the wish that she's never been kissed
    A broken dream haunting in your sleep

    And hiding in your smile a secret you must keep,
    love cuts you deep
    Love breaks the wings of a butterfly on a wheel
    Love breaks the wings of a butterfly on a wheel

    There's no scarlet in you, lay your veil down for me
    As sure as god made wine, you can't wrap your arms around a memory
    Take warmth from me, cold autumn wind cut sharp as a knife
    And in the dark for me, you're the candle flame that flickers tolife
    Love breaks the wings of a butterfly on a wheel
    Love breaks the wings of a butterfly on a wheel

    Wise man say all is fair in love and war
    There's no right or wrong in the design of love
    And I could only watch as the wind crushed your wings
    Broken and torn, crushed like a flower under the snow

    And like the flower in spring
    Love will rise again to heal your wings
    Love heals the wings of a butterfly on a wheel
    Love will heal the wings of a butterfly on a wheel Writer/s: CRAIG DAVID ADAMS, MICK BROWN, SIMON THOMAS HINKLER, WAYNE HUSSEY
