"Butterfly" as written by Joanna Smith and Billy Crain....
Oh the nights are too long
When the questions are long

I try
But I will Never understand
What do you see in her?
What do you see in her?

she's the lifelight of me
as you walk hand in hand
and i try and i try and i try and i try
but i will never understand
what do you see in here,
i ask myself what do you see in her?

she will leave you and i will be glad
yes she will leave you and i will be glad.

    General CommentIsn't it the wrong name of the song? Isn't it called "What do you see in her?" :S

    General Commentit is called "what do you see in him" so the lyrics are wrong....

    which was a different lyric that Morrissey wrote for the song that became known as "Wonderful Woman" with the lyric "whats to be done with her..."

    General CommentIt's "lifeblood" not "lifelight"!
    And it's "what do you see in HIM"!!!

    General CommentJemaeux, you mischievous scamp, are you trying to make insinuations about Moz's sexuality with that 'What do you see in her?' caper? Either that or you're dyslexic - in which case, fcuk ouy (sorry).
