about

Written, recorded and released in October, 2010.

About deciding to not do something.
Are all decisions butterflies?

lyrics

Been thinking 'bout choices and directions in life
When you could've turned left, but you chose to go right
How would it change things? Are they all butterflies?
Can you tell when it matters, without needing hindsight?

I don't know, but I want to.
Time is slow. Have I lost you?

When daily I walk past the place where we met,
why do I feel a sense of dread and regret?
I can't help but thinking how things might have been
Can't help but feeling I only missed it by a little


Been thinking about choices and the one that I made
Not to act on my feelings when you moved away
Kept myself quiet and watched you depart
Now I sit here in silence...with a weight on my heart

I don't... I don't know, but I want to
Time is slow. Have I lost you?

When daily I walk past the place where we met, why do I feel a sense of dread and regret?
I can't help but thinking how things might have been
Can't help but feeling I only missed it by a little.

By a little. By a little. By a little.
Yeah.

[Imagine a guitar solo here]

And still daily I walk past the place where we met.
And daily I feel that sense of dread and regret.
I can't help but thinking what we might have been
No I can't help but thinking... Oh!

I miss you. I miss you.
Oh, I missed you by a little.
Oh, I missed you by a little.

Oh, yeah.
Ooooh, yeah.

...by a little.
