  • Lyrics: Butterflies fall like rain from the sky Every time she closes her eyes Lands on his lips like her kisses Cover them in the bed where they lie She wanted to be A mortician when she grew up Now she practices her art on the corpse of his heart Ain’t that some piece of luck Maybe she can’t make the dead wake up With formaldehyde and a little make-up But she’ll embalm it with the tears she cries So at least it will look alive Now October’s almost over And June gonna come too soon But that dead heart on the table starts stirring Every time she shows him the moon Butterflies fall like rain from the sky Every time she closes her eyes Lands on his lips like her kisses Cover them in the bed where they lie It's not like he got left at the altar It was more like a sacrifice There were no loaves of bread or fishes Just flesh and blood and wine But when the leaves start to turn He gets all turned around In slanting sunlight and long nights with her That break without making a sound Sometime hope is like train tracks Sometimes it stretches for miles It can take you wherever you want to go Sometimes you find yourself a new home Butterflies fall like rain from the sky Every time she closes her eyes Lands on his lips like her kisses Cover them in the bed where they lie
