lyrics

i don’t not want to let you go
i let you go i let you go
i guess there wasn’t any other way

i thought you were my copilot
how will i ever run this ship
without you by my side to navigate?

[whistle pre]

CHORUS:
thought you were my copilot na na na
my copilot na na na na na
now i know that you were just taking me for a ride
and that’s alright it was a beautiful ride

my loneliness is on your dime
painted lady of my life
drifting through the Appalachian plains

admit it you’re a butterfly
you always knew you’d leave my side
you were just waiting for your wings to change

[chorus]
BRIDGE:
a memory of sunlight in a Massachusetts square
as i watch the idea of our child vanish in the air
guess i was pretty clueless as you covered me with sand
was this always your plan?

[chorus]

just admit it you’re a butterfly
yeah just admit you’re a butterfly
you were just waiting for your wings to dry
yeah you were just waiting for your wings to dry
