Butterfly Collector


Stuck behind,
Only watching,
She moves fleetingly,
I’m only watching.

The glass between us,
Only watching,
The gulf behind us,
I’m only watching.

I don’t want to be
A butterfly collector,
I don’t want to be
Just a butterfly collector.

The class between us,
Only watching,
She moves on the street,
I’m only watching.

I don’t want to be
A butterfly collector,
I don’t want to be
Just a butterfly collector.

I want to be somewhere else,
I want to be far away,
I want to be somebody else,
Because I don’t want to be a butterfly collector.

I don’t want to be
A butterfly collector,
I don’t want to be
Just a butterfly collector.

I don’t want to be,
I don’t want to be,
I don’t want to be,
I don’t want to be a butterfly collector.
