                             BUTTERFLIES - Sia
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This is my first tab so forgive me if it's not 100% correct. I couldn't find  any for
song anywhere on the net so i decided to try to write one. Guess it's not very popular,
it's still nice. Should be simple to learn because it's pretty much one riff throughout 
whole piece.

Enjoy!!

LYRICS

We've been to the top, we've been to the bottom
We've known everything and forgotten, yeah

You've kicked me around, you've wrapped me in cotton
You've carried our load, and you've shot 'em

Oh yes the butterflies are still there
Oh yes the butterflies are still there

We've argued by the baggage claim
We've accepted and we've laid blame
We've drank Sangthip in monsoonal rain
We've felt separate and felt the same

Oh yes the butterflies are still there
Oh yes the butterflies are still there
Oh yes the butterflies are still there
Oh yes the butterflies are still there

[Instrumental + Bridge]

We've shared joy and we've shared pain
We've shared guilt and we've shared shame
We've bought into the stupid games
We've freed each other and we laid claim

Oh yes the butterflies are still there
Oh yes the butterflies are still there
Oh yes the butterflies are still there
Oh yes the butterflies are still there

Because we came from the same cocoon


*Additional Info*

Keyboard enhances the song by emulating a xylophone, harmonica and an organ as well as
some chords from a synthesizer and a clarinet at various points of the bridge.
