The Clarks – Butterflies And Airplanes lyrics

Never had to walk a single mile in my shoes
I'm not saying that you ever really wanted to
We can never go back to another time
But this photograph's painted in my mind

I remember when you made your car fly
I'm surprised we could drive and stay alive
Nothing more than a scar left on your head
What will we dream of next to paint this town red?
The rules we're always bent, but never broken
Sneak outside your house and we'll start smoking

Butterflies and airplanes,
Big Ben, John Glenn, and radio waves
I want to fly back to another day
And there's nothing you can say
To make this go away
Daydreamers Holiday

Met a girl we consummated in the summertime
Turns out she went both ways, I didn't mind
She worked on a fishing boat in Juneau...
Alaska, haven't seen her, she moved away years ago
The rules were always bent but never broken
You said you kissed a girl and you weren't joking

Butterflies and airplanes,
Brain dead, Retread, blown out all night raves
But I want to fly back to another day
And there's nothing you can say
To make this go away
Daydreamers Holiday

We drank on your brother's fake ID
Pass the hat, roll it fat, hey this ain't free
There was always such a riot when your folks left town
Cigarette burns on the couch would always bring you down

Butterflies and airplanes,
Pipe bomb, dot com, hate kills, Jesus saves
Do I want to fly back to another day?
And there's nothing you can say
That makes me want to stay
Daydreamers Holiday
Butterflies and airplanes, Big Ben, John Glenn and radio waves
