Awful sweet to be a little butterfly
Just wingin' over things and nothing deep inside
Nothing going, going wild in you, you know
You're slowing by the riverside or floatin' high and blue
Or maybe cool to be a little summer wind
Fly once through everything and then away again
With the taste of dust in your mouth all day
But no need to know like sadness
You just sail away 'cause you know

I don't do sadness
Not even a little bit
Just don't need it in my life
Don't want any part of it
I don't do sadness
Hey, I've done my time
Looking back on it all
Man, it blows my mind
I don't do sadness

So been there
Don't do sadness
Just don't care

    [Ilse and Moritz dialog]

    So maybe I should be some kind of laundry line
    Hang their things on me and I will swing 'em dry
    You just wave in the sun through the afternoon and then see
    They come to set you free
    Beneath the rising moon
    'Cause you know


    This is Moritz's suicide song.

    It's about him thinking of all the different things he could be when he dies. He sticks with Summer Wind, I do believe, and Melchior makes a reference to the summer with a wind it's not known yet aka moritz.
