When I think of those East End lights, muggy nights
Curtains drawn in the little room downstairs
Prima Donna lord, you really should have been there
Sitting like a princess perched in her electric chair

And it's one more beer, I don't hear you anymore
We've all gone crazy lately, my friends out there
Rolling round the basement floor

Someone saved my life tonight, sugar bear
That almost had your hooks in me, didn't you dear?
You almost had me roped and tied
Altar-bound, hypnotized, sweet freedom whispered in my ear

You're a butterfly
And butterflies are free to fly
Fly away, high away, bye bye

I never realized the passing hours of evening showers
A slip noose hanging in my darkest dream
I'm strangled by your haunted social scene
Just a pawn out-played by a dominating queen

Oh, it's four o'clock in the morning
Damn it, listen to me good
I'm sleeping with myself tonight
Saved in time, thank God, my music's still alive

Someone saved my life tonight, sugar bear
That almost had your hooks in me, didn't you dear?
You nearly had me roped and tied
Altar-bound, hypnotized, sweet freedom whispered in my ear

You're a butterfly
And butterflies are free to fly
Fly away, high away, bye bye

I could have walked head on into the deep end of the river
Clinging to your stocks and bonds
Paying your H.P. demands forever

Coming in the morning with a truck to take me home
Someone saved my life tonight, someone saved my life tonight
Someone saved my life tonight, someone saved my life tonight
Someone saved my life tonight
So save your strength and run the field, you play alone

Someone saved my life tonight, sugar bear
That almost had your hooks in me, didn't you dear?
You nearly had me roped and tied
Altar-bound, hypnotized, sweet freedom whispered in my ear

You're a butterfly
And butterflies are free to fly
Fly away, high away, bye bye

Someone saved, someone saved
Someone saved my life tonight, someone saved my life tonight
Someone saved, someone saved
Someone saved my life tonight, someone saved my life tonight

Someone saved, someone saved
Someone saved my life tonight, someone saved my life tonight
Someone saved, someone saved
Someone saved my life tonight, someone saved my life tonight
Someone saved my life tonight
Someone saved my life tonight, someone saved my life tonight
