Elusive Butterfly

You might wake up some morning
to the sound of something
moving past your window in the wind
and if you’re quick enough to rise
you’ll catch the fleeting glimpse
of someone’s fading shadow

Out on the new horizon
you may see the floating motion
of the distant pair of wings
and if the sleep has left your ears
you might hear footsteps
running through an open meadow

Don’t be concerned, it will not harm you
it’s only me pursuing something I’m not sure of
across my dreams with nets of wonder
I chase the bright elusive butterfly of love

You might have heard my footsteps
echo softly in the distance
through the canyons of your mind
I might have even called your name
as I ran searching after something to believe in

You might have seen me running
through the long abandoned
ruins of the dreams you left behind
if you remember something there that glided
past you followed close by heavy breathing

Don’t be concerned, it will not harm you
it’s only me pursuing something I’m not sure of
across my dreams with nets of wonder
I chase the bright elusive butterfly of love

Across my dreams with of nets of wonder
I chase the bright elusive butterfly of love
