You’re a pretty butterfly
You keep on passing by
To another land inside my hands
Your home is in the sky
And there’s a lesson waiting to be learned
The fire starters always get the best
And the good guys never get the girl
No shooting stars cannot fix the world
Now you’ve made the same mistakes
But I won't this time
No I won’t this time

And you’re a pretty butterfly
And I believe all the lies
Blinded by your sideways smiles
And the kindness in your eyes
But there’s a limit to your fly
I can offer you a better life
But you keep on flying from the light
And I’ve lost my faith in wrong and right
And I’ve made the same mistakes
But I won't this time
No I won’t this time

I know exactly what you do
I made them sure I studied you
You won’t pick me
I’m just a breeze underneath your wings
So I pray each night you change your mind
And maybe I’m worth the fight
But I am wrong every time
You only know how to fly

You only know how to fly
You only know how to fly

    Nobody said anything about this song? (Sighs) I guess stupid bands like One Direction, singers like Miley Cyrus with just straight up sickening music videos and talentless singers like Justin Beiber that are in trouble with the law ( I hope he ends up in jail for some time so he'll learn his lesson before he goes speeding in his stupid car again and eventually killing someone)are taking over and people aren't listening to good,nice and meaningful songs like this one. If you listen to these some what called "artist's" music then I'm sorry…It's just my opinion…No need to cause a fight.
