5/7/2015 alternate lyrics

If I could fly the speed of light, I
could get to Canis Major in five thousand years
butterflies and black and bluebirds
I'd never be the same since I met you

Pennies thrown into a fountain
make a wish, blow out the candles, take a breath
God is troubling when you consider
believers that would welcome the end of the world

Got a job and it pays me
I want love more than I deserve
I read the paper, makes me crazy
there's got to be a way to make it work, oh

Ashes, stardust
look at us crawling out the mud
let's go around the block
we'll make the most before the jig is up
dreamers, the big talk
we never [?know the deck is never stop?]
ashes, stardust
look at us, crawling out the mud

I know that dying is scary to us
but everybody do it 1-2-3
on the sidewalk, the dandelion
is reaching from a crack up to the sun
words can be a wicked tool for twisting truth
I want to be true to you
blood and bones, black holes and stones
all those things pave the way for you and me

Got a job, and it pays me
I want love more than I deserve
I read the paper, makes me crazy
there's got to be a way to make it work, oh

Ashes, stardust
look at us crawling out the mud
let's go around the block
we'll make the most before the jig is up
campfires and high rise
you never [?] quite when to stop
ashes, stardust
look at me crawling out the mud

If I could fly the speed of light, I
could get to Betelgeuse in about six hundred years
butterflies and black and bluebirds
I'd never be the same since I met you
maybe dying is scary to us
but everybody do it A-B-C
God is troubling when I consider
believers that would welcome the end of the world

Got a job 'cause it pays me
I want love more than I deserve
I read the paper, makes me crazy
there's got to be a way to make it work, oh

Ashes, stardust
look at us crawling out the mud
let's go around the block
we'll make the most before the jig is up
ashes, stardust
look at us crawling out the mud
ashes, stardust
look at me crawling out the mud

Butterflies and black and bluebirds
I'd never be the same since I met you
If I could fly the speed of light, I
could get to Betelgeuse in about six hundred years
butterflies and black and bluebirds
Black and Blue Bird
main lyrics
If I could fly at the speed of light, I
could get to Canis Major in five thousand years
butterflies and black and blue birds
I'll never be the same since I met you, girl
pennies thrown into a fountain,
make a wish, blow out the candles, take a breath
God is troubling when you consider
believers that would welcome the end of the world

Got a job, and it pays me
I want love more than I deserve
I read the paper, makes me crazy
gotta be a way to make it work, oh

Ashes, stardust
look at us, climbing out the mud
let's go round the block
we make the most before the jig is up
dreamers, big top
high wire, circus never stop
ashes, stardust
look at you crawling out the mud

I know that dying is scary to us
but everybody do it, one, two, three
on the sidewalk, the dandelion
is reaching from a crack up to the sun
words can be a wicked tool for
twisting truth, I wanna be true to you
blood and bones, black holes and stones
all those things pave the way for you and me

Got a job, and it pays me
want love more than I deserve
the headlines, they make me crazy
gotta be a way to make it work, oh

Ashes, stardust
look at us, crawling out the mud
let's go around the block
we make the most before the jig is up
campfire, high rise
we never did quite know where to stop
ashes, stardust
look at me, crawling out the mud

Butterflies and black and blue birds
I never be the same since I met you
if I could fly the speed of light, I
could get to Betelgeuse in about six hundred years
butterflies and black and blue birds
