Lyrics:

I painted your room at midnight
So I’d no yesterday was over
I put all your books on the top shelf
Even the one with the four leaf clover
Man I’m getting older

I took all your pictures off the wall
Wrapped them in a newspaper blanket
I haven’t slept in what seems like a century
And now I can barely breathe

CHOURUS
Just like the crow chasing the butterfly
Dandelions lost in the summer sky
When you and I were getting high as outerspace
I never thought you’d slip away
I guess I was just a little too late

Your words still serenade me
Your lullabies won’t let me sleep
I’ve never heard such a haunting melody
Oh it’s killing me
You know I can barely breathe

Amazing! I'm an old 60's and 70's rock and roller. I never thought I'd hear a new band do anything that could grab me by the heart. I WAS WRONG! Heart and soul in the vocals and the music. Wow!

As a mother who lost her son, this has got to be the best song and video to describe me now...

I read that somewhere this incredible song was dedicated to Glenn Pangborn...he was my best friend and soul mate when we "were getting high as outerspace "when we were young. I have also had the great opportunity to get to know his other soul mate, my friend Victoria, one of the most beautiful butterflies I have ever known. May Pang's soul rest in peace and happiness forever.
