Verse 1

It’s better to live a thousand lives

And cry a billion tears

I’d rather relive the broken hearts

Of a hundred thousand years

I’d risk a million mistakes again

If only I could make you see

That I’m the only one for you, Mariposa

You’re the only one for me



I see it all so clearly

Though hope rages in vain

Struggling against this torrent

That sweeps our souls away,

And though I know

That you have heard

All those words before

The tears you’ve cried

The Loss you buried

The pain that your soul bore,

Just give us a chance, Mariposa

I’m waiting here for you

I’ll hang on through this hurricane

I’ll never give up on you


Verse 2

I’d like to think that Fate has not

Brought us here just to see us part

I wanna believe that this love is real

Two soulmates sharing one heart

I’m willing to give up everything

To give to you my soul

Mariposa, please don’t fly away

Can’t stand the thought of seeing you go


Repeat Chorus



Why can’t we risk

Why can’t we try

Why can’t we grab this love

And hold tight

I’m giving to you

The raft of my soul

Baby just hold on to me

I’m yours for all

            Eternity . . .


Repeat Chorus
