Brevity is everything
everything is brevity
I am a drowsy butterfly
floating above a salty sea

I could vanish like an ocean mist
would you notice anything?
I am a love-sick butterfly
grown heavy in the wing


There's a flower in my yard
She blooms just for a day
funny thing about it is
I never heard her complain

Brevity is everything
everything is brevity
I am a drowsy butterfly
floating above a salty sea

I could vanish like an ocean mist
would you notice anything?
I am a love-sick butterfly
grown heavy in the wing

In a glimmer we are gone
born on a fragrant wind
at worst we are just dust
at best we are pollen

And am I born to ramble on
just to flutter towards the flame?
In the stillness of the night
oh, why do you call my name
why do you call my name
am I brought up just to fall again?

Brevity is everything
everything is brevity
I am a drowsy butterfly
floating above a salty sea
