Lilian dreams of butter flavoured kisses
While Jill just hopes for strawberry curls
In two plaits down her little girls back
And that carefree smile, why can't it remain?
Why can't that little girl stay the same?
But growing up seems easier,
but when you get there it's not
but once you've started, it's impossible to stop
so through her buttermilk kisses, she turns to butterscotch
and Lilians losing her smile
but Jill is losing her mind
what happened to the strawberry little girl
her baby left behind?
Blue skies aren't as perplexing,
When you stare at them with mature eyes
Coz what made them so beautiful
Was strawberry insight
And a little hand has grown, and Jill can't hold on anymore
So through strawberry greys she cries...
Why did I have to let go?
Now there's something we all know
Coz love is like a butterfly, I heard somebody say
But millions of butterflies die, everyday,
And no one sees the littered ground,
With colours fading and decaying
She can't hold it too tight
Coz she just wants her strawberry,
To come home tonight
