Butterfly V2.0

Before I started INTI roughly two years ago, I posted Corinne Bailey Rae's Butterfly which is about understanding the love parents shower their children with till they are able to 'fly like butterflies'. Now, I am posting another song, titled Butterfly Fly Away, which is saying no matter however hard it is, a child has to leave home eventually in order to reach his dream. Not hard to figure out why I'm posting it now, eh.

You tuck me in, Turn out the light
Kept me safe and sound at night
Little girls depend on things like that

Brushed my teeth and combed my hair
Had to drive me everywhere
You were always there when I looked back

You had to do it all alone
Make a living, make a home
Must have been as hard as it could be

And when I couldn't sleep at night
Scared things wouldn't turn out right
You would hold my hand and sing to me

Caterpillar in the tree
How you wonder who you'll be
Can't go far but you can always dream

Wish you may and wish you might
Don't you worry, hold on tight
I promise you there will come a day
Butterfly fly away

Butterfly fly away, butterfly fly away
Flap your wings now you can't stay
Take those dreams and make them all come true

Butterfly fly away, butterfly fly away
We've been waiting for this day
All along and knowing just what to do
Butterfly, butterfly, butterfly, butterfly fly away

Butterfly fly away
Butterfly fly away

Songwriters: Ballard, Glen; Silvestri, Alan;You tucked me in, turned out the light
