Butterfly by Nicole C. Mullen from CD: Nicole C. Mullen
Not yet a woman and certainly not a child But I was caught somewhere in the middle On that one Friday afternoon And I, I remember mama saying, "It's time for you to go Go out on and change the world and become All that you have dreamed of" And as the tears that she was crying Fell from her face and shoulders she said "Don't forget who you are child, where you Come from, where you're goin' 'Cause I'm always gonna be here for you Fighting in your corner So with every bow you take Take one for those that came before you"
(Chorus) Fly, Fly Butterfly Fly Stand upon these two shoulders of mine Spread those wings of yours and fly
Now I'm a woman and I've got a child And I can't believe the day's gonna come When she tells me that it's time to soar And I don't know what I'm gonna do Not sure what I'm gonna tell her Maybe don't forget who you are child Where you come from, where you're going 'Cause I'm always gonna be here for you Fighting in your corner So with every bow you take Take one for those that came before ya
There is something sacred About the letting go of those we want to hold So tightly to, but somehow we know They must move on On for those who have a dream to make our future better And on for those who will earn their wings In spite of wind and weather You tell 'em love is waiting there Forever in their corner So with every bow they take They'll take one for those that came before them
