Butterfly In Reverse

This song is by Counting Crows, features Ryan Adams and appears on the album Hard Candy (2002).

Original video
Mary-Ann, you're better than the world
They took a lot of time getting it right on this girl
I said, Mary-Ann, you're better than the world
They did a lot of things right on this girl

Had a lot of girlfriends, I should have known them
Click your heels and count back from three
Do you wanna go back? You should have known that
The butterfly in reverse here is me

But Mary-Ann, you're better than the world
You took a lot of time getting it right on this girl
I said, Mary-Ann, you're better than the world
They did a lot of things right on this girl

Where'd you wanna go to, with nothing beside you
But webbing and curfews and rain?
And everything that hurts you is locked up inside you
Like butterflies with wings and other perfect things

We go
Swimming in the sunshine, dangling from clotheslines
Separate and fall into me
But did you ever see me? Me absolutely?
Me, but all you, but still me?

Oh, Mary-Ann, you're better than the world
They took a lot of time getting it right on this girl
I said, Mary-Ann, you're better than the world
They did a lot of things right on this
Did a lot of things right on this
Did a lot of things right on this girl
