You could flap you wings a thousand miles away
A laughing salesman sings
His world so far away

Butterfly (repeat)

You could take the storm away forever every day
'Cause you're mine
And I don't know what to say
You could let my smile disappear for a year
'Cause you're mine
That's the only way I like it to be

Butterfly (repeat)

Now we get to the best part
It happens all the time, telling me all your lies
You get your kicks from seeing me on the floor
Tied to your bed
Tied to the things you said
Butterfly coming back
Butterfly coming back

    General CommentI find it hard to believe nobody's commented on this song — easily one of The Verve's finest.

    Not sure about the lyrics though, maybe a reference to the butterfly effect? The opening line seems to suggest that anyway.

    Either way, killer song, killer guitar riff. If you can call it a riff… more of a cavernous roar… now if I could only find a tab…
