    "Going Downhill Fast" Lyrics

    The Divine Comedy

    One butterfly spies
    A glint in his eye
    The birds sing
    As he cycles by
    Oh, why should he feel sad
    This world ain't so bad
    And besides
    Woe betide he who would frown
    When natural beauty abounds
    And now, with wheels spinning free
    He's picking up speed

    Two butterflies
    Tie knots in his stomach
    They love it when he goes too fast
    The wind whistles past
    Oceans of air
    That will mess up his hair
    Though he no longer cares
    Anymore for
    Over-indulgence in vanities
    Vacuous vice
    Just once or twice
    Four times in five
    We forget we're alive
    And neglect to remind ourselves

    Wait,wait for me

    Oh great Mercury!
    As late as you may be,
    Will you wait for me?

    Three butterflies realise
    When it's time to depart
    They have tickled his ribs
    They have fluttered his heart
    But the starting is easy
    Compared to the stop
    And the bottom is hard
    When compared to the top
