To figure the reasons why, it takes a

(Verse 2)
She returned, was wearing that rose so well
Broke down and cried because of the sun that had been up all day
At the movies there would have been rain
Oh, the bittersweet irony, rain replaced by tears

(Chorus 1)

I saw you shape the wings of a butterfly
Until the colors fit like a puzzle already done
But who am I to question the grand design?
Another headstone written to fix every broken rhyme
Carved in the hands of time, for the singer inside to remind us of your life

(Chorus 2)
In a place where nothing is real, let me tell you how I feel
Didn't know which heart to mend
So here's a drink to absent friends, for a love that never did end
And the story is done at last, for the ghost of flowers past

I saw you shape the wings of a butterfly
