Misery Is a Butterfly Lyrics

Dearest Jane I should’ve known better
But I couldn’t say hello, I didn’t know why
But now I think, I think you were sad
Yes you were, you were, you were

What I say, I say only to you
Cause I love and I love only you
Dearest Jane, I want to give you a dream
That no one has given you

Remember when we found misery
We watched her, watched her spread her wings
And slowly fly around our room
And she asked for your gentle mind

Misery is a butterfly
Her heavy wings will warp your mind
With her small ugly face
And her long antenna
And her black and pink heavy wings

Remember when we found misery
We watched her, watched her spread her wings
And slowly fly around our room
And she asked for your gentle mind

This is quite possibly the most beautiful song ever written. The music is spectacular and the vocals are perfectly eerie.

I definitely agree with Sepulchrave. This song is the most chilling, beautiful piece of art-it's not just music, it's an art in itself-I've heard in a while. Kazu has one of the prettiest eerie vocals around. I love Blonde Redhead, no matter what they do.

God, this is beautifull, haunting and perfect

I see this song as a lullaby to a daughter or friend perhaps lover there are many aspects of the song that match that critera. As to the musical parts, they are quite beautiful... so solemn and seductive, stunning... Reminds me of that English group ILYA. (music wise)

So beautiful, and I agree that it's a work of art.

I uglymisteryellow is right, it makes sense when placed in the context of the catcher in the rye, "Dearest Jane I should’ve known better But I couldn’t say hello, I didn’t know why" During the novel, Holden repeatedly attempts to contact a girl he used to know name Jane Gallagher, who he obviously cares about very much, but keeps making reasons why he shouldn't, so they never meet, even though she seems to be the only girl he has legitimate feelings for, and if he went and said hello to her when she came to the dorm at the starting of the novel, he might not have gotten so lonely and mixed up in prostitution etc.
