There's a cruel cruel villain on the loose Who brings a garbage bag to meadows under the glistening moon He beckons in hundreds Of slumbering and snoozing butterflies Bag over his shoulder, he moves into the night And he releases those butterflies inside me To forever live imprisoned and caged Their wings' tired flapping turning every word I say Every word I say into a hurricane Now I live unsure if cursed or gifted But then I see your shining smile And like a bomb going off or something Those butterflies take flight Holding your hand sets off a tidal wave inside me They've inhabited my esophagus so I can't even speak They're planting eggs inside my lungs and I can hardly breathe Pretty sure they've inhabited my somatosensory cortex Modifying everything I feel When I'm around you I don't know what to do And I don't get how stomach acid doesn't do them in It stumps my mind, my darling, how butterflies survive Any time at all without anything they need My veins aren't branches, my heart is not a tree Take flight, my little butterfly You turn me into a cartoon villain Who wants to trap those butterflies inside But when I see you, I let them fly out of my ears I don't want those poor butterflies to die So take flight
