lyrics

Remember when each snowflake matched
Each pair of shoes each dot and dash
They came for me took my right brain
To them I leave sincere complaints

But to my Buttercup
I leave the other stuff
Just remember that your left brain is enough

Meticulous
You are so
A buttercup to brighten every broken button hole
Meticulous
Your are so
A fingertip to darken every mitten in the snow
Careful planning carefully mismanaged
To Buttercup I leave my soul

The mockingbirds mock me today
They grind their teeth as if to say
"Huff as you puff meticulous
Your science will not be enough"

Being of a sound mind
I'll leave this world behind
And to buttercup I leave my winking eye

Meticulous
You are so
A handkerchief to soften every winter wonder blow
Meticulous
You are so
A buttercup to leave my handkerchief to when I go
Careful planning carefully mismanaged
To Buttercup my very soul

Undone unglued a plan in ruin
My favorite hemisphere removed
What's left of me my Buttercup
You won't remember any of
