BACK-ON – Butterfly | Lyrics

It’s been a while since we’ve posted new lyrics on the BOO site, and as we gear up for the forthcoming release of ‘ONE STEP!/Tomorrow never knows, it’s time for ‘a step’ back in time to one of BACK-ON‘s earlier releases called  ‘Butterfly‘!

Butterfly (Single)

This is definitely one of my most favourite BACK-ON songs, although at the time of its release, the song certainly caused some concern amongst the fans that preferred the ‘rock’ side of the band, as it had a very ‘electronic dance’ feel to it. A PV was never released for the song, and it was promoted on TV with a 15-second CM featuring Kenji03 against an urban backdrop, fitting as the song was the ending theme for the TV series Shinjuku Swan.

As usual, you can find the lyrics below (after the cut-off) with the original kanji, romaji and karaoke versions of the lyrics as well! If you haven’t heard the song yet, visit our Music page and scroll to the end for our pop-out radio and listen to it.

By the way, we do occasionally amend the spelling of the original English lyrics if we believe it to be appropriate. But as always, if you spot any mistakes, please let us know either by commenting below or via the contact form.

Finally, if you would like to post these lyrics elsewhere, please kindly link back to this page. :)

Kanji BACK-ON – Butterfly

[Verse 1]
Yeah! smell of booze and B.O! You’re my butterfly
トリコ! 嗅覚にHIT!
飛び交うシャンパン & 万券に身を任せ!
今夜こそ I’ll pick you up! pick you up!

I really wanna catch you tonight ここは東京カオス Urbanite
You looks like マジで Butterfly!
Can’t stand the legs shorty! she so fly!
Baby come on! lay back! Baby come on! lay back!
Let’s chill! right?
What you want me to do tonight?

[Chorus]
You’re my butterfly
指先にそっととまってみてくれよ
甘い蜜で誘いながら君をこの手に…
離したくないココにあるモノずっと探してた君のこと
走りながら、迷いながら君をこの手に…

[Verse 2]
So what you want? what you wanna do?
Where you wanna go? but I know what you want to do!
Cuz I’m a hunter like a spider 君を逃がしはしないな

You’re my butterfly

If you come back here, I’ll be your slave!
