I search for you in a glance or stare
But no one's there
I talk with you for an hour or two
What good does it do?
I seek thee in certain subtleties
But what do they mean?

On airplanes, streets, in starry skies
In smiles, jealousy, reasons why
In cravings, pain, the tears that fall
They don't matter at all

A light that flickers when carressed
Do you pass the test?
An ocean wave in a salty sea
Do you see what I see?
A tree with roots that cling to the ground
Are you treasure to be found?

In letters, numbers, hieroglyphics
In generalizations and specifics
On minds and hearts, please advertise
Where I can find my butterflies
