Butterflies

  • (Ooh)
    (Ooh)

    Chasin' butterflies by the water
    Watchin' aeroplanes because you gotta

    Inside
    Inside everything is wrong
    Outside
    Ooh, outside

    You keep your eyes on the prize and your head in your hands, oh (oh)
    You can't see the wood for the trees even when all the leaves are gone (oh)
    'Cause you're still chasin' butterflies (oh)
    Watchin' all the years roll by (oh)

    And you've had all your life to dream about it
    But you never did a thing about it

    Just waste time
    Waste time everything is wrong
    But you're fine
    Ooh, you're fine

    You keep your eyes on the prize and your head in your hands, oh (oh)
    You can't see the wood for the trees even when all the leaves are gone (oh)
    'Cause you're still chasin' butterflies (oh)
    Watchin' all the years roll by (oh)

    But we soldier, soldier on
    Yeah, we soldier, soldier on

    Inside
    Inside everything is wrong
    But you're fine
    Ooh, you're fine

    You keep your eyes on the prize and your head in your hands, oh (oh)
    You can't see the wood for the trees even when all the leaves are gone (oh)
    'Cause you're still chasin' butterflies (oh)
    Watchin' all the years roll by (oh)
    Waitin' for your ship to arrive (oh)
    You're still chasin' butterflies (oh)

    But we soldier, soldier on
