Butterfly Kiss

from by Shagg



New day is dawning, sun burns my eyes
Stretch in the morning, yawning; now I may rise
I'll seize the day before it beats down on me
Victory of the heart is my revelry

My wish is a smooth butterfly kiss
Love and war is the same
If you approach it like a game

There was a garden where my heart grows
Outstretched petals where love overflows
Here we are facing the world without a net
Trials and tribulations make you want to forget

I can save you from a far worse fate
But from my own demons I can't escape
You say you believe in me
While I drown in misery

Got to have foundation or something to hold
Solitude is always so long and cold
There's strength in numbers and I rolled my numbers
When I looked into your eyes

I want to bathe you in golden shards of light
I didn't fade you into the night
You say you believe in me
While I drown in misery
