Paul McCartney

  What is this thing in life
that persuades me to spend time away from you?
  If you can answer this you can have the moon.    
  This is the place to be
anyway you can see there's a lovely view.
  Why are there always so many other things to do?  

Distractions, like butterflies are buzzing ‘round my head,
when I'm  alone I think of you.
And the life we'd lead if we could only be free
from these distractions.          

The postman's at the door
while the telephone rings on the kitchen wall,
pretend we're not at home and they'll disappear.
I want to be with you,
tell me what I can do, nothing is too small
away from all this jazz we could do anything at all.

Distractions, like butterflies are...

Inter:(Am Bm7 Em Am Bm7 Em E7/9 Am Bm7 Em Am Gm)

I'll find a peaceful place
far away from the noise of a busy day,
where we can spend our nights counting shooting stars.

Distractions, like butterflies are buzzing ‘round my head,
when I'm alone I think of you,
and the things we'd do if we could only be through
with these distractions, like butterflies are buzzing ‘round my head,
when I'm alone I think of you,
And the life we'd lead if we could only be free
form these distractions.
