You're a love song
Only half-way sung
You're the knot that comes undone
You're the daylight
Dressed as darkest night
The flight of a stringless kite

The very vision
The mirage man
You're air in the palm of my hand
You're like catching the days sunset
O rain that's never wet

You're a butterfly in the mind
You're a butterfly before my eyes
You're a butterfly, a trick of time

Who leaves before he arrives

You're a butterfly in the mind
You're a butterfly before my eyes
You're a butterfly who says he's mine

Who leaves before he arrives

    General CommentThis is Cowboy Bebop? That's funny because I've watched all the sessions, also have them all one tape, and I've never heard this song. Anyone know how this song is connected to Cowboy Bebop?
