dirty old town, dirty old town,
they've got all your little problems clearly written down.
but you don't even know, and you can't even see
the butterfly that you're going to be,
the butterfly that you are becoming.

all the road, all the miles,
hair goes grey, eyes stay wide.
fall into bed, turn off the light
fall asleep inside. you're the one,

you're the one. you're the one.
hearts grow into hearts until hearts become one.
you're the one, you're the one.
i carry your heart in my heart sung with every song.
but you're the one.
you're the one.

poised with grace in this poisoned place.
and how you ever manage to keep it off your face.
but you don't even know, you can't even see
the butterfly that you're going to be,
the butterfly you are becoming.

dirty old town, dirty old town,
they've got all your little problems clearly written down.
but you don't even know, and you can't even see
the butterfly that you're going to be,
the butterfly that you are becoming.
you're the one you're the one.
