Butterflies

They show up when you don't want them to
You know they're there when you feel the flutters
Their wings, like little tickles that make you sick
Those little butterflies

They show up when
When your crush smiles at you
On a big day when you're nervous enough
They never leave you alone
Those little butterflies

They will never fail to do their job
They are always there when you don't want them
But they confirm your feelings for you
They will always be there
Those little butterflies
