about

Like its namesake, 'Butterflies' underwent a variety of changes through the years. The song is about the beginning and end of romance; the feeling of butterflies inside when first we fall for someone, and the bloodied knife of lost love when it all comes crashing down.
Presented to several groups as a release track but consistently denied, the track started as a ballad and eventually blossomed into a pop rock odyssey. 'Butterflies' was first composed in 2005 after an 'end of all things' experience.

Also available on 'C Side Volume 3: Sad Shallows'

lyrics

Take a bloodied butcher knife
Finish what you started
Carve me up the same damn way
You did before you left
Open up this gaping wound
Salt it like you love to do
End my endless misery
Blow by blow dismember me

All I really wanted
Was to feel that feeling
You know the one
When first we come
Butterflies
Inside
It's all I really wanted
It's all I really need
It's all anyone ever really sees
Why must you be so

Oh my heart is broken up
In so many different ways
In this hopeless darkened hole
I try to forget your face
I have lost all memories
Back in or out of love
All that's left is death
And maybe a door back to the start

All I really wanted
Was to feel that feeling
You know the one
When first we come
Butterflies
Inside
It's all I really wanted
It's all I really need
It's all anyone ever really sees
Why must you be so

All I really wanted was to feel
