Week 38 – Rainbows And Butterflies

This song is our second collaborative effort called “Rainbows And Butterflies”. It’s about how we all need to be careful when we take things at face value.

We decided to try something new this time. Jaye’s into rap and hip-hop, so I asked him if he could write a rap verse for this song, and he came up with two! I think this gives an added dimension to the song, a blending of two different styles… something I’d like to call “acoustic-rap” 😉

Like our previous video, we recorded at the Maestro Acoustic Lounge. The song’s structure is slightly complicated, and after maybe 10 takes we got tired and started messing up more and more haha… but that’s the nature of a live recording, isn’t it?

In the end, we went with a much earlier take, which we thought was okay, but could be a lot better 😉 Anyway, here goes. Let us know if you like it!

Rainbows And Butterflies

Pretty, pretty little things walking down the street
Sweet perfume and big wide eyes meet
And you tingle from your head to your feet
You wanna be in their perfect lil lives

Cause rainbows and butterflies
Are there to catch your eyes
Cause rainbows and butterflies
Don’t be fooled by their disguise

It’s the way you be looking at me like (My oh my)
Mystical Magical hips swaying (Side to side)
Thinking about the jazz from our past (It didn’t last)
Better forget about it (It’s all turned to dust)

Pretty, pretty little things walking down the street
Sweet perfume and big wide eyes meet
And you tingle from your head to your feet
You wanna be in their perfect lil lives

Cause rainbows and butterflies
Are there to catch your eyes
Cause rainbows and butterflies
Don’t be fooled by their disguise

Cause they’ll getcha
You better watcha

Hey life ain’t supposed to be all (Glitter and glam)
Falling in love and losing your mind go (Hand in hand)
But is she for real (I don’t know)
Maybe just another high heeled girl (Oh I don’t know)

Pretty, pretty little things walking down the street
Sweet perfume and big wide eyes meet
And you tingle from your head to your feet
You wanna be in their perfect lil lives

Cause rainbows and butterflies
Are there to catch your eyes
Cause rainbows and butterflies
Don’t be fooled by their disguise

Cause they’ll getcha
You better watcha
