"Boy Bruised By Butterfly Chase" as written by and Gordon Downie Louis Perez....
Someone was laughing at me without shoes
But the grass felt so good and the day was so blue
Must have tripped, I don't know
Do I remember falling away, nothing that I hold on to,
And not being afraid?

Down, down, down
Falling down, down, down
It's like I was born never touching the ground

Someone was crying while I lay in the dirt
I could hear their hearts breakin' but I wasn't even hurt

Down, down, down
Falling, down, down, down
Was like I was born never touching the ground
Ground, ground
Was like I was born never touching the ground

    General CommentI first heard this song in a short film by Sarah Polley called "I Shout Love". I'm really glad I took the time to find it because it's a really beautiful song with beautiful lyrics to match.

    General CommentIn my opinion or perhaps through my self-projection - this describes the typical evening on blow. But, on the way down I'm usually a little afraid so I may be mistaken.
