The Crow and the Butterfly
by Shinedown



I painted your room at midnight
So I'd know yesterday was over
I put all your books on the top shelf
Even the one with the four leaf clover
Man, I'm getting older

I took all your pictures off the wall
And I wrapped them in a newspaper blanket
And I haven't slept in what seems like a century
And now I can barely breathe

Just like the crow chasing the butterfly
Dandelions lost in the summer sky
When you and I were gettin' high as outer space
I never thought you would slip away
I guess I was just a little too late

Your words still serenade me
Your lullaby's, they won't let me sleep
I've never heard such a haunting melody
Oh, it is killing me
You know I can barely breathe

Just like the crow chasing the butterfly
Dandelions lost in the summer sky
When you and I were gettin' high as outer space
I never thought you would slip away
I guess, I was just a little too late

Just like the crow chasing the butterfly
Dandelions lost in the summer sky
When you and I were gettin' high as outer space
I never thought you would slip away

Like the crow chasing the butterfly
Dandelions lost in the summer sky
When you and I were gettin' high as outer space
I never thought you would slip away
I guess I was just little too late

Just a little too late
