Lana Del Rey Lyrics

Butterflies Lyrics
We're sippin' cocktails, looking down upon the riot,
You whisper "Baby, love the way you look tonight”,
I wanna save you, save you from the world outside

I know it seems you're all I'm wanting and much more,
But then, to tell the truth, I've been through this before,
They say "I'll save you, save you”, but they never do

I think you know, I want to believe you,
But in my heart I know that I'll leave you.
It's sort of sad how instincts deceive you,
Or disappoints you

Everything inside makes me wanna stay,
But everything you've done makes me wanna run run run

I made the decision that I can't be with you,
I came out the door, but I already miss you,
Thinking about how I used to kiss you,
I-I'm getting butterflies, I-I'm getting butterflies

I made the decision that I'm too good for you,
Then I see you're calling, it's hard to ignore you
Try to be strong, but, babe, I adore you,
I-I'm getting butterflies, I-I'm getting butterflies

Back in high school, in the yard, we used to fight,
But you would sneak into my window every night,
"I wanna take you, take you to the world outside.”

Well, I assume it's what I wanted at the time,
But your eyes were like a constant warning sign,
"I wanna take you, take you” and I didn't mind

And even though I didn't believe you,
You had a smile so easy to see through,
I know a little part of me will always needs you,
Try to reach you, try to please you

Everything inside makes me wanna stay,
But everything you've done makes me wanna run run run

I made the decision that I can't be with you,
I came out the door, but I already miss you,
Thinking about how I used to kiss you,
I-I'm getting butterflies, I-I'm getting butterflies

I made the decision that I'm too good for you,
Then I see you're calling, it's hard to ignore you
Try to be strong, but, babe, I adore you,
I-I'm getting butterflies, I-I'm getting butterflies

I know, I know, I know, we aren't good together
I can't let go, I'm sure that we should be forever

I look around, there's no one above you,
I think you know that I'll always love you.
And baby, I'm bad, too, it's not just you,
But I can't wait forever to trust you

Everything inside makes me wanna stay,
But everything you've done makes me wanna run run run

I made the decision that I can't be with you,
I came out the door, but I already miss you,
Thinking about how I used to kiss you,
I-I'm getting butterflies, I-I'm getting butterflies

I made the decision that I'm too good for you,
Then I see you're calling, it's hard to ignore you
Try to be strong, but, babe, I adore you,
I-I'm getting butterflies, I-I'm getting butterflies
