Shinedown - The crow and the butterfly

I painted your room at midnight,
So I'd know yesterday was over.
I put all your books on the top shelf,
Even the one with the four-leaf clover.
Man I'm getting older.

I took all your pictures off the wall,
And wrapped them in a newspaper blanket.
I haven't slept in what seems like a century.
And now I can barely breathe.

Just like a crow chasing the butterfly,
Dandelions lost in the summer sky.
When you and I were gettin' high as outer space,
I never thought you'd slip away.
I guess I was just a little too late.


Your words still serenade me,
Your lullabies, won't let me sleep.
I've never heard such a haunting melody,
Oh it's killing me.
You know I can barely breathe.

Just like a crow chasing the butterfly,
Dandelions lost in the summer sky.
When you and I were gettin' high as outer space,
I never thought you'd slip away.
I guess I was just a little too late,
I was just a little too late.

Just like a crow chasing the butterfly,
Dandelions lost in the summer sky.
When you and I were gettin' high as outer space,
I never thought you'd slip away.

Like a crow chasing the butterfly,
Dandelions lost in the summer sky.
When you and I were gettin' high as outer space,
I never thought you would slip away.
I guess I was just little too late, (yeah, yeah)
I was just a little too late.
I was just a little too, little too late.
I guess I was just little too late.
