Butterfly you'd better fly, do you know why the sun shines
and someday you'll go away but could you stay another day?
I remember when you're nothing but a fuzzy little worm
Often times they'd catch you and peopled make you squirm
but since then now you're different and I fear you'll fly away
you've got the wings upon you but have you got what it takes.
We spend more time changing than being who we are.
All I want's to go dancing 'cross the skies and be a star.
Is that too much to ask for, me to be the one you'll love?
Then that's all that I'll ask for me to be the one you love.
'Better fly, butterfly, you can't stay here for long.
If you're gonna fly dear butterfly I'd catch the wind it's strong.
Someday soon you'll leave here and you don't hafta look back.
Friend caterpillars envy you, they all know you wont come back.
And now your pretty tattoo, you know you'll get the looks
the days, nights are changing and the more you fly your hooked.
I remember when you were nothing but a funny little girl.
And now a winged gypsy flying everywhere in the world.
