"Butterfly" as written by and David/pearce Usher....
You came apart on me last Sunday morning
Chocked and indicted by the truth
And it's always tough when there's never enough
Of the good things coming
And there was never enough for you
There was never enough for you

Butterfly
Where you gone
I can't see you anymore
My eyes are taken still too high
Came down naked on you
Butterfly
Where you gone
I can't feel you anymore
I can't feel you anymore

Got excited when I thought that we would last
Twisted inside out 'til we were drowning
From the first attack we could never go back so we just keep on coming
But I was never enough for you
Was there ever enough for you

Butterfly
Where you gone
I can't feel you anymore
My eyes are taken still too high
Came down naked on you
Butterfly
Where you gone
I can't feel you anymore
I can't feel you anymore

And if you think you're dying
Baby well you know I felt the same
'Cause we were only hoping
Why's it always feel like, feel like
It feels like rain

Butterfly
Where you gone
I can't see you anymore
My eyes are taken still too high
Came down naked on you
Butterfly
Where you gone
I can't feel you anymore
I can't feel you anymore
I can't feel you anymore
I can't feel you anymore

    General CommentYeah, it's a breakup song - but there is also an element of remembering and reflecting on the past and what was once there...

    Where have you gone? Cause I can't feel you in my life anymore...

    Beautifully stated love and loss...

    General CommentShe was "choked and indicted by the truth" So i assume she found out something about his pas that wasn't very favorable, almost like A Day in the Life. I wonder if David really has some secrets.. love his voice anyway, his lyrcs , I can undertand what he means every time, somehow. That's why they're breaking up, because they fell in love quickly and strongly but he didn't realize how delicate and butterfly like she and their reelationship was.
