You are a splendid butterfly

Chanson : All My Little Words, The Magnetic Fields



Paroles


You are a splendid butterfly It is your wings that make you beautiful And I could make you fly away (I could make you fly away) But I could never make you stay You said you were in love with me (you said you were in love with me) Both of us know that that's impossible And I could make you rue the day (I could make you rue the day) But I could never make you stay


Not for all the tea in China Not if I could sing like a bird Not for all North Carolina Not for all my little words Not if I could write for you The sweetest song you ever heard It doesn't matter what I'll do Not for all my little words


Now that you've made me want to die You tell me that you're unboyfriendable And I could make you pay and pay (I could make you pay and pay) But I could never make you stay


Not for all the tea in China Not if I could sing like a bird Not for all North Carolina Not for all my little words Not if I could write for you The sweetest song you ever heard It doesn't matter what I'll do (it doesn't matter what I'll do) Not for all my little words It doesn't matter what I'll do (it doesn't matter what I'll do) Not for all my little words
