If Only I Were A Butterfly
Imogen Heap Lyrics


Sometimes i don't feel quite myself here
Sometimes i don't feel like it's my home
Would like to be a place where i'm free to play, a place i call my own

Sometimes i feel like i'm trapped in a spider's web
And each thread is in itself a problem
So i try to break free, untangled
But i'm back to where i started from

If only i where a butterfly
I'd fly so high
Right passed the sky
And let go my fears
Let go my my despairs
I will give them to the air, without a care

I walk alone in the dark
I wonder through the night
I lie to look up high
To see the starry skies
It gives me strength to know
There's peace somewhere up there
So quite so undisturbed
I'm mystified
In my bed i lie awake
And i'm dreaming of that land
So far away from me
It makes me want to cry
...
Pray for the day for i die

If only i where a butterfly
Id fly so high
Right passed the sky
And let go my fears
Let go my my despairs
I will give them to the air, without a care

This song is so beautiful. I love finding an artists before mainstream music. You can really get a sense of who they were when they started out. It's a really beautiful experience, listening to their older stuff.
