Re-recorded from the EP version as part of our album sessions.

lyrics

Hummingbird, you flit from bud to bud taking what you can
And use up all the sweetness in their fragile frames
Then you just leave them empty

Like you did to me
And it’s hard to see behind the beauty
Another side
Broken wings will never fly
Broken wings will never fly

Butterfly, feeding on the nectar ‘til you’ve had enough
But it never satisfies and you’ve just got to move on
A sweeter scent is carried on the wind

Well you fed on me
And it’s hard to see behind the beauty
Another side
Broken wings will never fly
Broken wings will never fly

Oooh Hummingbird
Oooh Butterfly
Broken wings will never fly
Broken wings will never fly

Hummingbird, you flit from bud to bud taking what you can
And use up all the sweetness in their fragile frames
Then you just leave them empty
