lyrics

Butterfly Net

I want to laugh the whole way through this song
If that’s Ok my Darlins
As these words begin to crumble
And make no sense at all
Will you catch them in your butterfly nets
As they tumble
Stick them in your pockets
And take them home

Like snow falls on the mountains
Branches drop their leaves
Tears roll off my face
If I don’t wipe them on my sleeve
I don’t expect your butterfly nets
To be helpful
I guess you’ll need a bucket
To get them home

You’ve got no one’s attentions
Nobody to hold
This loneliness invention
Is going strong yet it’s so old

I said I’d laugh the whole way through this song
And all you heard was crying
As these words begin to stutter
Then make no sound at all
Will you catch them in your butterfly nets
As they flutter
Stick them in your pockets
And take them home
