Travis – Butterflies Lyrics

Butterflies Lyrics By ‚ÄčTravis

Chasing butterflies by the water
Watching aeroplanes because you gotta

Inside
Inside everything is wrong
Outside
Ooh outside

You keep your eyes on the prize and your head in your hands, oh oh
You can’t see the wood for the trees even when all the leaves are gone
‘Cause you’re still chasing butterflies
Watching all the years roll by

You’ve had all your life to dream about it
But you never did a thing about it

Just waste time
Waste time everything is wrong
But you’re fine
Ooh you’re fine

You keep your eyes on the prize and your head in your hands, oh oh
You can’t see the wood for the trees even when all the leaves are gone
‘Cause you’re still chasing butterflies
Watching all the years roll by

But we soldier, soldier on
Yeah, we soldier, soldier on

Inside
Inside everything is wrong
But you’re fine
Ooh you’re fine

You keep your eyes on the prize and your head in your hands, oh oh
You can’t see the wood for the trees even when all the leaves are gone
‘Cause you’re still chasing butterflies
Watching all the years roll by
Waiting for your ship to arrive
You’re still chasing butterflies

But we soldier, soldier on
