lyrics

Catching Butterflies

She sang a song that night
A little truth and a little lies
I was a child again
Out catching butterflies
You walked into the room
Something flickered and something flew
Right into my open hand
Not a moment too soon

But don't you ask me to dance
This heart wouldn't stand a chance
'Cos looking into your eyes
Is like catching butterflies

I wish I was where you are
Laughing out loud in some Irish bar
Or walking slowly upon the sand
Telling stories and making plans

But the distance lies in between
And there's miles of 'might have been'
For every beautiful thing I know
I'm always learning to let them go

So don't you ask me to dance
This heart wouldn't stand a chance
'Cos looking into your eyes
Is like catching those butterflies
A lifetime all in one day
Destined to fly away

And don't you take it as read
All the things that we've never said
It's all unfolding before my eyes
Like catching butterflies
A lifetime all in one day
Destined to fly

Don't you ask me to dance
This heart wouldn't stand a chance
'Cos looking into your eyes
Is like catching those butterflies
A lifetime all in one day
Destined to fly away away
