"Butterfly" as written by and Stina Nordenstam....
It happened again last night
It happened again alright
Honey it makes me want to cry
Too late I fell out of bed
Hit the ceiling instead
I'd turned into a butterfly

God didn't spend much time
This was a hit and run
Clearly the wings were oversized
In all, nothing was right
Still it was quite a sight
I'd turned into a butterfly

But the last time I looked in a mirror
It looked like it was going to be fine
And the last time I looked in the mirror
It looked like it was going to be fine

Baby I don't know why
Wasn't I the average guy
And I was almost satisfied
To be just one in the crowd
Not too tall or too loud
I turned into a butterfly

Tired but always clean
Staying away from dreams
So I lie sleepless by your side most Nights
A twitch in my back
Gently life would attack
I'd turned into a butterfly

But the last time ...

Once past the drowning panic
And the longing to fly
Whatever I see in the mirror
I'm sure that it's going to be fine

    General Commentthis song is brilliant! it's so well written, the tune, the words, the rhythms, plus her voice, so so good. kind of haunting, a little freakish and scary, but so hopeful.
    this is my favourite of her songs.

    General CommentWould it be fair to say this is a nod to Kafka's Metamorphosis?
