A faded photograph I mailed to you 
With feelings I don't want to face 
And a long song of surrender in blue 
I remember when you took my breath away 

Chanson papillon, we were very young 
Like butterflies, like hot butterfly 
Chanson papillon, we had just begun 
We let it slide on by 
We didn't realize 

All our memories are burning in time 
Like a bittersweet perfume 
Can you tell me how a love that's so fine 
Could have climaxed in a single afternoon 

Chanson papillon, we were very young 
Like butterflies, like hot butterfly 
Chanson papillon, we had just begun 
We let it slide on by 
We didn't realize 

Chanson papillon 
Chanson papillon

Gone are the days of instant romance 
And the nights of slow goodbyes 
That was a time of life when foxy was the dance 
But then you got wise to all my lies 

Chanson papillon, we were very young 
Like butterflies, like hot butterfly 
Chanson papillon, we had just begun 
Let it slide on by 
Let it slide on by 

Chanson papillon, we were very young 
Like butterflies, like hot butterfly 
Chanson papillon, we had just begun 
Just begun to fly

Ooh, yeah, I wanna say

Chanson papillon, chanson 
Chanson papillon, chanson 
Chanson papillon, chanson 
Chanson papillon, chanson
Chanson papillon, chanson
