You're a butterfly
and you want to be
in flowers
and you want to meet
Dalai lama
reach nirvana

because I love and you love me
I just want you to be
in flowers
with me

I'm a little child
and I want to be
held in your arms
any fool can see
that it's nothing new
that I need you

because I love and you love me
I just want you to see
the little child in me

there's A butterfly that’s in my heart
it lives in me when we're apart
but preferably you stay with me
because I love and you love me
I just want you to be the butterfly in me

    General CommentThis song is so lovely. Its talking about him wanting to be with a girl in paradise with just eachother. They love eachother and want to hold oneanother forever. She is a butterfly and he can feel it but cant see it inside him. This represents LOVE.

    General CommentThis song is called Butterfly, not In Flowers. Love the melody, the happy, fun part of love.
