Butterflies and Clowns

You look so deep you really see
Into the eyes of your destiny
She's calling you to set her free
But is this agony or ecstasy?

She's a butterfly and a clown,
She's dancing on clouds
But they'll all fall down
And you'll vanish in the flood
Caught in rain, drowned in mud.

If her tears are heaven
And her laughter pain
Then you'd let her cut you
Again and again

She batters you with urgent need
A clenching fist and yet fragile,
Just a clinging weed -
Eventually you follow her lead

You know not her every thought
But her persistent grief
Leaves you overwrought
Still, you were always all she sought

She's a butterfly and a clown,
She's dancing on clouds
But they'll all fall down
And you'll vanish in the flood
Caught in rain, drowned in mud.

(And you'll vanish in the flood
Caught in rain, drowned in mud.)
