Bishop Allen – Butterfly Nets lyrics

Calm that wicked wind,
To pick you up
And carry you off eastward,
Though I did release you
For to seek a warmer sky

Should you be blown back
Know that I will always run to greet you,
Still surprised to catch you
Every time

Armed with this small butterfly net
I will face the world alone
& never be lonely

So calm that wicked wind,
& if you go, you could be gone forever
I will play awhile here
By & by & by & by -

Armed with this small butterfly net
I will face the world alone
& never be lonely

Up & up you go
For to steal the secrets of the heavens
Will you share them with me
My bright & brilliant spy?

Should you be blown back
Know that I will always run to greet you
Still surprised to catch you
Every time
Still surprised to catch you
By & by & by & by -
