Catching the Butterfly
The Verve Lyrics


As though you were born
And so you thought
The future's ours
To keep and hold

A child within
Has healing ways
It sees me through
My darkest days
I'm gonna keep catching that butterfly
In that dream of mine
I'm gonna keep catching that butterfly
In that dream of mine

In my lucid dreams
In my lucid dreams

Something now
Through life no fun
I want to feel
I want to run

I'm gonna keep catching that butterfly
In that dream of mine
I'm gonna keep catching that butterfly
In that dream of mine

In my lucid dreams
In my lucid dreams

I'm gonna keep catching that butterfly
In that dream of mine
Keep catching that butterfly
In that dream of mine
I'm gonna keep catching that butterfly
In that dream of mine
I'm gonna keep catching that butterfly

In my private dreams
In my private dreams
In my private dreams
My lucid dreams

My forgotten schemes
I see through you
You see through me
I see through you

You see through me
Be with me
Be with me
I see through you

You see through me
I see through you
You see through me

To be in your eyes
To be in your eyes

Lyrics
So you're born and
So you thought
The future's ours
To keep and hold
Oh, child within
Has healing ways
It sees her through
My darkest days
I'm gonna keep catching that butterfly
In that dream of mine
I'm gonna keep catching that butterfly
In that dream of mine
Oh-oh-oh, in my elusive dreams
Oh-oh-oh, in my elusive dreams
Some may know
Through life no fun
I wanna feel
I wanna run
I'm gonna keep catching that butterfly
In that dream of mine
I'm gonna keep catching that butterfly
In that dream of mine
Oh-oh-oh, in my elusive dreams
Oh-oh-oh, in my elusive dreams
Gonna keep catching that butterfly
In that dream of mine
Keep catching that butterfly
In that dream of mine
Gonna keep catching that butterfly
In that dream of mine
Oh-oh-oh, in my darkest dream
Oh-oh-oh, in my darkest dream
Oh-oh-oh, in my darkest dream
Oh-oh-oh, in my darkest dream
My elusive dreams
My forgotten schemes
My elusive dreams
My forgotten schemes
I see through you
You see through me
I see through you
You see through me
I see through you
You see through me
I see through you
You see through me
Believe in me
Believe in you
Believe in me
Believe in you
I see through you
You see through me
I see through you
You see through me
I see through you
You see through me
I see through you
You see through me
To feel the light
To feel the light
To feel alive
To feel alive
Oh, that elusive dream

I bought this album because of Symphony when I was 11. I thought I was buying it for that song, but I was VERY wrong. I remember as a 12 year old wandering some trails by myself in a national forest in northern Michigan listening to the whole album and being, for the first time, psychedelically blown away, especially by this song as I watched the drips drop down from and endless forest of green leaves. I had just read Tolkien's Silmarillion and between that and this track (with the others on the ablum) I was more full of 'what if' questions then any time in my life to that point. An awakening

Amazing. I never thought of this song connecting with the Silmarilion, but I do now.
The Silmarillion's a masterpiece, just as this song is.
To find beauty in life whether it's by the word or done musically is an incredibly good gift.

This album is what happens when talented people have a moment of pure magic. It's only possible perhaps once in a life time no matter how talented a person is. Everything must be aligned perfectly and the timing needs to be just right. So many have tried to replicate the magic of a former time in their life believing it was due to their ability, only to discover that it was actually a moment of natural magic never to be repeated.

Jason Schadeck

It's called inspiration. It's something that acts like thought but it just isn't yours. People's egos get wrapped up into a moment of inspiration and confuse it with their own works. Call it magic, call it God's devine influence or a manifestation of the collective consciousness through a single point. It really doesn't matter. I've had many of these and I'm just waiting for that moment when to pull the trigger on them. Think back on yours and figure out how they can be done.
