The Crow & the Butterfly Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
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
Verse 2
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
Verse 3
Just like the crow chasing the butterfly
Dandelions lost in the summer sky
Cause 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
Verse 4
Your words still serenade me
And your lullaby's, they won't let me sleep
And I've never heard such a haunting melody
Oh it's killing me
You know I can barely breathe
Verse 5
Just like the crow chasing the butterfly
Dandelions lost in the summer sky
Cause 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
Verse 6
Just like the crow chasing the butterfly
Dandelions lost in the summer sky
Cause 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
Verse 7
Just like the crow chasing the butterfly
Dandelions lost in the summer sky
Cause 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
Verse 8
I was just a little too late
I was just a little too, little too late
