Lyrics

You dig every butterfly in the sky
They light you up as they flutter by
And their dripping colors will get you high
But you don’t want me…You don’t want me

I wanna wriggle on your pin
I’m beating my wings against your window
But you won’t let me in
I know I should avoid the pain
But I’m a moth drawn to the flame
I just wanna burn, I just wanna burn…yeah

You dig every butterfly in the sky
They light you up as they flutter by
And their dripping colors will get you high
But you don’t want me…You don’t want me

I wanna wriggle on your pin
I’m beating my wings against your window
But you won’t let me in

I know I should avoid the pain
But I’m a moth drawn to the flame
I just wanna burn, I just wanna burn…yeah

Slide Solo

There’s an old oak tree by the riverside
And when you walk by, it’s in there I hide [Deb sings these harmonies]
I wanna fly out but I’m too shy
So you don’t see me…you don’t see me la la la la la…

I wanna wriggle on your pin
I’m beating my wings against your window
But you won’t let me in

I know I should avoid the pain
I’m a moth drawn to the flame
I just wanna burn, I just wanna burn

I’ll be ash in the morning
Rub me into your skin
I’ll be ash in the morning
Blow me into the summer wind
