[Interlude 1]

Do you want me or do you not?
  +
I heard one thing, now I’m hearing another
  +
Dropped a pin to my parking spot
  +
The bar was hot, it's 2 a.m., it feels like summer

[Verse 1]
 
Happiness is a butterfly
 
Happiness is a butterfly
 
Try to catch it like every night
 
Try to catch it like every night
 
It escapes from my hands into moonlight
 
It escapes from my hands into moonlight
  +
Everyday is a lullaby
  +
I hum it on the phone, like every night
  +
And sing it for my babies on the tour life
  +
Ah-ah
   
Every day is a lullaby
+
[Pre-Chorus]
Hum it on the phone like every night
+
If he's a serial killer then what's the worst
Sing it for my babies on the tourlyfe, ah
+
That could happen to a girl, who's already hurt?
  +
I'm already hurt
  +
If he's as bad as they say, then I guess I'm cursed
  +
Looking into his eyes, I think he's already hurt
  +
He's already hurt

Left the canyon, drove to the club
Sing it into my music, I'm crazy

I was one thing, now I'm being another

Go down to Sunset in my truck

Lyrics

[Interlude 1]
Do you want me or do you not?
I heard one thing, now I’m hearing another
Dropped a pin to my parking spot
The bar was hot, it's 2 a.m., it feels like summer

[Verse 1]
Happiness is a butterfly
Try to catch it like every night
It escapes from my hands into moonlight
Everyday is a lullaby
I hum it on the phone, like every night
And sing it for my babies on the tour life
Ah-ah

[Pre-Chorus]
If he's a serial killer then what's the worst
That could happen to a girl, who's already hurt?
I'm already hurt
If he's as bad as they say, then I guess I'm cursed
Looking into his eyes, I think he's already hurt
He's already hurt

[Chorus]
I said, "Don't be a jerk, don't call me a taxi"
Sitting in your sweatshirt, crying in the backseat
Ooh, oh-oh
I just wanna dance with you
Hollywood and Vine, Black Rabbit in the alley
I just wanna hold you tight down the avenue
Ooh, oh-oh
I just wanna dance with you
I just wanna dance with you

[Post-Chorus]
Baby I just wanna dance with you
(Dance, with you, dance)
Baby I just wanna dance with you
(Dance, with you)

[Interlude 2]
Left the canyon, drove to the club
I was one thing, now I'm being another
Go down to Sunset in my truck
I'll pick you up if you're in town, I'm going
Ah-ah

[Verse 2]
Happiness is a butterfly
We should catch it while dancing
I lose myself in the music, baby
Everyday is a lullaby
Try to catch it like lightning
I sing it into my music, I'm crazy

[Pre-Chorus ]
If he's a serial killer then what's the worst
That could happen to a girl, who's already hurt?
I'm already hurt
If he's as bad as they say, then I guess I'm cursed
Looking into his eyes, I think he's already hurt
He's already hurt

[Chorus]
I said, "Don't be a jerk, don't call me a taxi"
Sitting in your sweatshirt, crying in the backseat
Ooh, oh-oh
I just wanna dance with you
Hollywood and Vine, Black Rabbit in the alley
I just wanna hold you tight down the avenue
Ooh, oh-oh
I just wanna dance with you
I just wanna dance with you

[Post-Chorus]
Baby I just wanna dance with you
(Dance, with you, dance)
Baby I just wanna dance with you
(Dance, with you)

[Outro]
With you
