Ingrid Michaelson – Lady In Spain


I am a lady in Spain
I’ll sing a haunting refrain
I am a lady from Mars
And I can unscrew the stars
I can be anything that I see
I can be anything that I,
anything that I see

I am in love with a boy
Manufactured to destroy
So I shall unravel my love
Like an old red woolen glove

I can do anything I want to
I can do anything I want,
anything my heart tells me to do

Tells me to do
Tells me to do

I can be anything that I see
I can do anything I want to

I can do anything I want to
I can be anything that I,
anything that I see

Butterfly Nets-Bishop Allen


Lyrics to Butterfly Nets :

calm that wicked wind,
to pick you up 
and carry you off eastward,
though i did release you
for to seek a warmer sky

should you be blown back
know that i will always run to greet you,
still surprised to catch you
every time

armed with this small butterfly net
i will face the world alone
& never be lonely

so calm that wicked wind,
& if you go, you could be gone forever
i will play awhile here
by & by & by & by –

armed with this small butterfly net
i will face the world alone 
& never be lonely

up & up you go
for to steal the secrets of the heavens
will you share them with me
my bright & brilliant spy?

should you be blown back
know that i will always run to greet you
still surprised to catch you
every time
still surprised to catch you
by & by & by & by –
