The Crow And The Butterfly Lyrics - Shinedown

Review The Song (42)



I painted your room at
Midnight, so I'd know
Yesterday was over
I put all your books on the top shelf,
Even the one with the four leaf clover
Man, I'm getting older
I took all your pictures off the wall
and wrapped them in a news paper blanket
I haven't slept in what seems like a century,
and now I can barely breathe

[Chorus]
Just like a crow chasing the butterfly
dandelions lost in the summer sky
When you and I were getting high as outer space,
I never thought you'd slip away
I guess I was just a little too late

sponsored links
Your words still serenade me,
Your lullabies won't let me sleep
I've never heard such a haunting melody.
Oh, it's killing me
You know I can barely breathe

[Chorus]
Just like a crow chasing the butterfly
dandelions lost in the summer sky
When you and I were getting high as outer space,
I never thought you'd slip away
I guess I was just a little too late

Just like a crow chasing the butterfly
dandelions lost in the summer sky
When you and I were getting high as outer space,
I never thought you'd slip away -

Like a crow chasing the Butterfly
dandelions lost in the summer sky
When you and I were getting high as outer space,
I never thought you'd slip away
I guess I was just a little too late

Just a little too late

My name is margaret,
in august I wrote that this song meant alot to me because My cousin died from heroin, and I was also addicted to heroin. A few people wrote me from this blog showing concern. I wanted to say thanks to you all, and I am now 8 months sober and I finally feel so free from the prison I was in. This song really has changed my life.

Amazing | Reviewer: Majerle | 1/18/11

The first time that I heard this song was at my friend's memorial type thing that his brother had for him at our school. He had Overdosed on Oxycontin and this song is just everything that he had went through and the way he would express himself to his girlfriend. By the way this song describes him it always ends up bringing a tear to my eye to the thought of his passing but the drugs were his choice never the Overdose because he was so dedicated to being with his girlfriend that he could never put her through that hurt. What he didnt know was that he had smoked to much of the Oxycontin and had passed away in his sleep when he went to take a nap. And this song is like his tribute to how he was and how he saw life in his own eyes. Forever will he be missed. I still love you Dylan. You'll always be in our memories.



crow and the btfly | Reviewer: Anonymous | 12/14/10

This is a song about a mother losing her son. he must have died in some unforeseen circumstances. she is still not over with the deadly incident and the memories still haunt her in darker space. If I talk about the dance they have shown, it portrays the life of the mother who lost her son, but because of this incidence, there are no colors and cheerfulness to her life, as described by the dance (dull and hopeless).



Drugs came between me and my bestfriend | Reviewer: Anonymous | 12/7/10

I was best friends with a girl for 35 yrs and drugs came between us, she was on it long before I started. We started doing it together 6months later she dont want nothing to do with me, accusing me of doing stuff ive not done, she is the one who has done it and blaming me, she didnt want me to have any other friends besides her. I love her with all my heart and I hope one of these days she relized what she has done to me she has stoled from me lied to me. Now Ive lost my best friend she not gone but she is not talking to me so she might as well be gone, this is killing me on the inside. To lose a friend for 35 yrs and we was like 2 peas in a pot. Always together hanging out doing our thing, im getting off the drugs cause its wreaked me fincially. I just want my best friend back like she was before the drugs messing up her life. I love u my friend Please get help and come back in my life, I miss u!!!!



Beautiful | Reviewer: Sara | 11/23/10

I fell in love with this song the first time I heard it. Such a beautiful and haunting description of loss and struggling to keep on living, surrounded by an unforgettable melody.
And sweet Margaret, please get some help so you can put down the drugs. It's almost impossible to do on your own and all your friends are dead or dying. For some reason your life is being spared so far. Maybe so you can help others in the future. You can get recover and get your life back. It's not easy, but it is worth it.



My son | Reviewer: JB | 9/25/10

From the first time I heard this song on the radio, I fell in love with it. The lyrics in the chorus about the butterfly first caught my ear as butterflies have taken on a special new meaning for me in the past few months. My husband and I lost our infant son to SIDS almost 4 months ago, and after reading about the story that inspired the song, this song holds a new meaning and definitely hits a lot closer now.



unforgettable | Reviewer: Kera | 9/8/10

Something about this song has me repeating it over and over again. It's an unforgettable song with unforgettable lyrics and melody. The words sting like the venom from a mamba, quickly running through my veins and into my heart. There are too many ways to decipher this song, to try and explain how it looks to me. But one thing is for sure, it may have a million meanings behind it but it's touched a million hearts and that's all that matters.

This is one of those songs that every person could relate to and take it to mean something different. My ex and I had three beautiful little girls together and when we split it was bad. As five years passed she fell to drugs and died. I never stopped loving her and this song speaks volumes about how I feel.



reasoning | Reviewer: anonymous | 8/14/10

i think this song is about a man and his girlfriend doing drugs. they were "as high as outerspace" and he didn't realize that it was really killing her. he was too late to save her. the crow is him chasing her, the butterfly. the songs later so he is packing all her stuff and remembering her.
