Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes - Why A Butterfly Can't Love A Spider Lyrics




In the sun I won't sleep, but in the night I'm the devil
My dreams are of hell, your dreams are of heaven
Now, I'll show you something special, so come and dance on my wire
And these are the reasons why a butterfly can't love a spider

When I'm high, I'm in heaven
When I'm low, I'm in hell
When I'm up, I'm a sinner
When I'm down, I am unwell

And it might keep you warm, but you can't see the fire
It might keep you calm, but you're in love with a liar
While you dance all night, you watch as the web gets tighter
These are the reasons why a butterfly can't love a spider

When I'm high, I'm in heaven
When I'm low, I'm in hell
When I'm up, I'm a sinner
When I'm down

And it might keep you warm, but you can't see the fire
Might keep you calm, but you're in love with a liar
While we dance all night, you watch as the web gets tighter
And these are the reasons why a butterfly can't love a spider

  2. Sanidhya Dev Gupta

    I saw the lyrics for this song on an IG post and thus here i am.

  3. Birdup

    From Gallows to now, Frank tells it like it is. Insane respect for his art.

  4. jony jony

    Where is the agressive? Where is the punk sound? So now you have to do music for pussys to make money? What a shame that u sing in the gallows... Someone broke u lil heart franky?

    Zcumbag

    yeah how dare an artist change.

  5. The Rainmaker

    Not a big fan of the new album but this track is a pretty solid one

  6. Andres Romero

    Buena rola, me gusta, mi like...

  7. Giovanni Stefani

    It was beautiful at Pula arena! This is my favorite song! 👆

  8. Art'n-rock viking

    Discovered the group at Foo Fighters concert in Bergen some days ago. Have a great little video of the vocalist and the guitarist amongst us dancing in the front crowd, just beside me. An ex- punk myself from back then when it started. Love several of the songs. What energy!

  9. Finn Campbell

    Soon they'll have 200 million views and 300 million likes

  10. EjaDreja

    I'm so grateful that you performed at the Foo Fighters Pula concert. This is a true discovery for me!!!

    Hochst1969

  11. Kelly Felton

  15. MrMotherfuck123

    New Album, not so good...

  16. puar

    what happened, frank...i liked it more when he was angry than depressed

    Maxime Dourlens

    @puar Take care my man, there's awesome gigs to go to and i'm sure your favorite album on the planet isn't created yet.

    puar

    @Maxime Dourlens Saw Primitive Man the other week. i really needed that. probably the most crushing band atm

    Rhodri Meredith

    @puar theres no point making an album tht sounds like a previous album bands need to progress and anyway atleast theres an album for each mood now

    puar

    @Rhodri Meredith sick of the trite progression argument. frank would still be a nobody if he started with this shit

    lissalotte

    ​@Maxime Dourlens Wow it really is easy to trigger someone these days

  17. Victor Barazarte

    Sorry for 2 dislikes; they are probably from my neighbours

    Mark Wright

    My neighbors love it. They keep banging on the wall to turn it up.

  18. Sibulle Vicious

    This song sounds like it could be on favourite worst nightmare by the arctic monkeys

  19. Finding Emo

    Fuck this album is good

  20. imme

    This album is one of the best things to happen to me this year

    Then Jolene

    In the sun I won't sleep, but in the night I'm the devil
    My dreams are of hell, your dreams are of heaven
    Now, I'll show you something special, and come and dance on my wire
    And these are the reasons why a butterfly can't love a spider

    When I'm high, I'm in heaven
    When I'm low, I'm in hell
    When I'm up, I'm a sinner
    When I'm down, I am a world

    And it might keep you warm, but you can't see the fire
    It might keep you calm, but you're in love with a liar
    While you dance all night, you watch as the web gets tighter
    These are the reasons why a butterfly can't love a spider

    When I'm high, I'm in heaven
    When I'm low, I'm in hell
    When I'm up, I'm a sinner
    When I'm down


    And it might keep you warm, but you can't see the fire
    Might keep you calm, but you're in love with a liar
    While we dance all night, you watch as the web gets tighter
    And these are the reasons why a butterfly can't love a spider

    Marshall Korn

    The end of the first chorus is "I am unwell" not I am a world.

  23. TheShagalizard

    This song hits me right in the feels.

  24. Lena Kurz

    Amazing song

  25. Momo Hunkerton

    I'm an older guy, 40s, and it's great to hear real rock music, this newer rock isn't rock, but this is the real deal

    Tony Cobuccio

    @Legs Magee Thanks for the list, its not like the old days, hanging at the record store all day and getting recco's from fellow music junkies

    Legs Magee

    @Momo Hunkerton

    Of course!

    Taterkaze

    lol wut? I have hundreds of "real rock music" bands tagged in Spotify, including FC.

    Legs Magee

    Also, check out Frank's previous bands, Gallows and Pure Love.

    Zcumbag

    he said the boomer thing, nice

  26. GERARD TAGGER

    Love It .... thank you

  27. sanga523

    Anyone else think this has a slight modern arctic monkeys feel/sound to it?

    LUIS OKAY

    sanga523 That was exactly my first thought and its great

    Kieran Roberts

    sanga523 I’m glad it’s not just me! Especially the bit just after the first “why a butterfly”

    Victor Hugo

    Remembers something about Humbug maybe, a lot truly lol like Dance Little Liar

  28. Tom Smith Art

    Brilliant!

  29. Jonas Köhler

    this album hits you like a truck. a truck full of emotions, coming out of its trailer after the crash
