Pardon me for my lack of excitement but I'm not entirely thrilled
Stutter when I talk flail around as I walk yeah the moments been killed
And I'm not good at this no not at all
I'm not good at this

I'm a wreck and I know it and I tend to show it every chance that I get
Butterflies in the skies they just fly on by yeah theyre making me sick
They dont flutter about I'd do without
All they do is kick

Mean it truly
Sincere heart
Why do you do this to me?
Tear me apart

It's my fault and I know it and I tend to blow it no thanks to you
It's like you sit and you watch me you poke and you taunt me its all that you do
And I'm not fighting that no not at all
Just want to be something a name you call
The lips you taste just to fall
Madly in love

Mean it truly
Sincere heart
Why do you do this to me?
Tear me apart

I've got my eye set on you
My heart is burning red
All of my words come out wrong
Run circles in my head
You had me and I melted
In the palm of your hand
You know it yes I felt it
You'll never understand

Mean it truly
Sincere heart
Why do you do this to me?
Tear me apart

Mean it truly
Sincere heart
Why do you do this to me?
Tear me apart

    General CommentI thought it was "butterflies in the skies"
    not "butterflies in disguise"? Either way, it's a beautiful song.

    Similarly to what signedbyfate said, it's about a girl who loves a guy.
    And she tries everything to be his everything. Unfortunately, he cheats on her.
    And sadly, the girl can't stop loving him, even though she knows she can do better.

    General CommentThis song is great! It completely embodies every attempt I make or have ever made with any guy!
    "It's my fault and I know it and I tend to blow it no thanks to you
    It's like you sit and you watch me you poke and you taunt me its all that you do
    And I'm not fighting that no not at all
    Just want to be something a name you call"
    This part is ironically fitting for me, because I am a mean flirt. I slander, I punch, that's just how I flirt. When I say something about how guys "poke" and "taunt" me, I'm careful to let them know that I'm not gonna fight that, because I feed off of the "violent" energy. A downfall of my "swag" is that it is often misinterpreted as guy-to-guy playin' around, so guys that I'm interested never see that I just want to be a name that they call.
    That's just want it means to me.
    Oh, favorite lyrics:
    I've got my eye set on you
    My heart is burning red
    All of my words come out wrong
    Run circles in my head
    You had me and I melted
    In the palm of your hand
    You know it yes I felt it
    You'll never understand


    soooo well written! I love it!
    I love He is We!

    My InterpretationTo me this song is all about first love. What you think, what you feel, what you DO just to get that special someone to notice you,even if it kills you.
