Who would break a butterfly on the wheel?
Not me, my precious child
Sweet angel wrap me in your velvet cloak, my dear
Love's a sweet warm goddess I invited here

So many times I call your name, ooh yeah
Before the night is through
Grant me one last wish
Sweet Soul Asylum
An everlasting kiss

Who would crush this woman underfoot?
Not me, my chosen one

So many times I call your name, oh please baby

Before the night is through
Grant me one last wish
Sweet Soul Asylum
An everlasting kiss
Oh baby

So many times I call your name, oh baby baby please
So many times I call your name
Before the night is through
Grant me one last wish
Sweet Soul Asylum
An everlasting kiss

Sweet Soul Asylum, yeah
Sweet Soul Asylum
