Butterflies

These butterflies, these beautiful feelings

Keep trying to burst out of me

Day and night, night and day

They're calling out your name

Over and over; screaming loudly

They want to come out to play

And say those three words

Just one time is all they need

To make them happy; make them free

I can't let them go; these little creatures

These tiny saviors cannot go

I keep hoping, wishing they'll bleed

Bleed more of this love into my heart

This madness it has to stay

If I tell you "I love you", will it go away?

Those words might take it all

Rip it from my grasp and leave me torn

My dear, I'm afraid you'll have to wait

Until I'm sure they'll be there waiting
