lyrics

Butterfly On The Wall

She plays the sweetest part, she plays the butterfly on the wall
And when the dance begins and all the flowers twist their stalks
she's still like a wallpaper pattern but in her heart wings
have started the winds all around to let the air begin.

we watched the ocean from the shores of Portugal and we
breathed into our balloons and let them fly over the sea,
they saw them over Brazil, Nazca, and back over Spain
they found us in the streets of Lisbon, then we breathed again.

here i am here i am
it's me here, it's me here
birds eat birds in the sky,
how can I send my love in a lullaby?

The show is done and Franny looks in silence at the stage
she takes in her hand Zooey's hand then with her usual grace says:
"If butterflies of the Old World may cause storms in Brazil
why can't we think a change in our hearts may change history?"

here i am here i am
it's me here, it's me here
birds eat birds in the sky,
how can I send my love in a lullaby?
