​Butterfly Jar

This song is by Eddi Reader and appears on the album Candyfloss And Medicine (1996).

Prettiest thing he ever saw
He'd been looking near and far
But he didn't want the world to share
So he kept her in a butterfly jar

All the time his beauty slept
While he was watching in the dark
No one saw and no one knew
That he kept her in a butterfly jar

Life goes on, around you everywhere now, life goes on
It's buzzing everywhere now, life goes on
No matter who you are, you'll never stop it jumping like a
Spark into a heart

Wouldn't it be the strangest thing
As we spin around this weary star
If all the time we never knew
We were living in a butterfly jar

Life goes on, around you everywhere now, life goes on
It's buzzing everywhere now, life goes on
No matter who you are, you'll never stop it jumping like a
Spark into a heart

Life goes on, around you everywhere now, life goes on
It's buzzing everywhere now, life goes on
No matter who you are, you'll never stop it jumping like a
Spark into a heart
Oh, heart

Prettiest thing he ever saw
He'd been looking near and far
But he didn't want the world to share
So he kept her in a butterfly jar {butterfly jar}
Kept her in a butterfly jar
Kept her in a butterfly... jar
