​Wooden Boat / Butterfly

This song is by Take That and appears on the album Beautiful World (2006).

Wooden BoatEdit

A little boy me went fishing in a wooden boat
Sitting there for hours in the cold
Patience is a virtue til we die
Then a ripple in the water caught my eye.

Sometimes we don't know what we're waiting for
That's the time to be the first one on the dance floor
We go from green to blue to go to black
Breathe deep, who knows how long will this last.

Only was last week I learnt to drive
Stole my mother's keys and drove all night
Christine never showed it's 4 am
Started up mum's car drove home again.

Sometimes we don't know what we're waiting for
That's the time to be the first one on the dance floor
We go from green to blue to go to black
Breathe deep, who knows how long will this last.

One year ago I kissed my bride
Now I wait to hear my baby's cry
Woman showed me all that she knew then
To cut himself down man's born again.

Sometimes we don't know what we're waiting for
That's the time to be the first one on the dance floor
We go from green to blue to go to black
Breathe deep, who knows how long will this last.

Christine died and now I'm here alone
What I wouldn't give to be on that wooden boat.

ButterflyEdit

Ooooooooo Yeah........

For once in my life I couldn't deny
I thought that I'd found my everything,
A lover a friend, the hours we would spend just doing nothing at all,
Yeah, but your need to leave is yours alone, break free let go,

Butterfly fly, fly away from here
I know we tried, tried through the laughter and the tears
You'll always be a part of me
In my heart you'll always be
Butterfly fly, fly away, fly away

Deep in your eyes the stare that I find
All that I really ever need.
Whatever I do you know you know that it's you girl
In every face I see.
Your last goodbye was yours alone, break free let go,

Butterfly fly, fly away from here
I know we tried, tried through the laughter and the tears
You'll always be a part of me
In my heart you'll always be
Butterfly fly, fly away, fly away

To the place you belong, I hope you hear the feeling strong
Hope that you can find the freedom in your life, in your life

Ahh sweet butterfly, just fly away, just fly away
I know we tried, tried through the laughter and the tears
You'll always be a part of me
In my heart you'll always be
Butterfly fly, fly away, fly away

Oh Fly Away, oh Yeah

For once in my life I couldn't deny,
I thought that I'd found my everything,
A lover a friend, the hours we would spend just doing nothing at all

For once in my life I couldn't deny,
I thought that I'd found my everything,
For once in my life I couldn't deny,
I thought that I'd found my everything,
