  • Lyrics: If the words I’ve spoken tore you apart I would speak them backwards but where would we start Again Again If holding on to something gives you control Just squeeze a little harder and don’t let it go Again Again And when you spread your wings And the feeling the freedom brings Gently you whisper goodbye You’re the Blackest Butterfly Every hole I puncture lets in the air The light that pierces through them forces the glare Again Again This constant struggle, a reason for sleep A stark realization, I know I can’t keep you Again Again And when the world is still The bottom of a hill Gently you whisper goodbye You’re the Blackest Butterfly
