Eddi Reader - Butterfly Jar lyrics

prettiest thing he ever saw
he’d been looking near and far
but he didn’t want the world to share
so he kept her in a butterfly jar

all the time his beauty slept
while he was watching in the dark
no one saw and no one knew
that he kept her in a butterfly jar

life goes on, around you everywhere now, life goes on
it’s buzzing everywhere now, life goes on
no matter who you are, you’ll never stop it jumping like a
spark into a heart

wouldn’t it be the strangest thing
as we spin around this weary star
if all the time we never knew
we were living in a butterfly jar

life goes on, around you everywhere now, life goes on
it’s buzzing everywhere now, life goes on
no matter who you are, you’ll never stop it jumping like a
spark into a heart

life goes on, around you everywhere now, life goes on
it’s buzzing everywhere now, life goes on
no matter who you are, you’ll never stop it jumping like a
spark into a heart
oh, heart

prettiest thing he ever saw
he’d been looking near and far
but he didn’t want the world to share
so he kept her in a butterfly jar [butterfly jar]
kept her in a butterfly jar
kept her in a butterfly... jar
