Shinedown – The Crow and the butterfly

[An extraordinary man introduced me to this epic power song, and it’s one of those songs that I keep coming back to. One, it’s sheer awesome. Two, it is an amazing music video. And three, I think I feel like that most of the time. Totally mismatched to life and forever missing the mark by just enough to know that I’m almost good enough, but never enough…]

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
I took all your pictures off the wall
and wrapped them in a news paper blanket
I haven’t slept in what seems like a century,
and now I can barely breathe

Just like a crow chasing the butterfly
dandelions lost in the summer sky
When you and I were getting high as outer space,
I never thought you’d slip away
I guess I was just a little too late

Your words still serenade me,
Your lullabies won’t let me sleep
I’ve never heard such a haunting melody.
Oh, it’s killing me
You know I can barely breathe

Just like a crow chasing the butterfly
dandelions lost in the summer sky
When you and I were getting high as outer space,
I never thought you’d slip away
I guess I was just a little too late

Just like a crow chasing the butterfly
dandelions lost in the summer sky
When you and I were getting high as outer space,
I never thought you’d slip away –

Like a crow chasing the Butterfly
dandelions lost in the summer sky
When you and I were getting high as outer space,
I never thought you’d slip away
I guess I was just a little too late

Just a little too late
