Thinking Out Loud
Sitting on a flower in the tree
So beautiful and yet so free
So unsuspecting of what is around
Not caring about the people it surrounds
Fly far, far away from here
This place is not the way it appears
And O Butterfly!
Take me with you
I want to drink the first drop of dew
But O Butterfly!
I won’t be able to make the flight
For my hands are tied.
So O Butterfly!
You fly far, far away
And remember me and say
I once met a girl who
Wanted to fly with me far, far away
She wanted to bloom with the flowers
And sing with the spring
And shine with the moon so bright.
For her hands were tied.
