I had nothing to say on Christmas day
When you threw all your clothes in the snow
When you burnt your hair, knocked over chairs
I just tried to stay out of your way
But when you fell asleep with blood on your teeth
I got in my car and drove away
Listen to me, Butterfly
There's only so much wine you can drink in one life
And it will never be enough to save you from the bottom of your glass
Where the state highway starts I stopped my car
I got out and stared up at the stars
As meteors died and shot cross the sky
I thought about your sad, shining eyes
I came back for my clothes when the sun finally rose
But you were still passed out on the floor

    General CommentThis song is typical of The Handsome Family with its sad, uncomfortable lyrics bafflingly set to uplifting music. It's a cautionary tale of sorts, and the message given in the chorus is a very deep one.
