Butterfly - Mariah Carey

When you love someone so deeply
They become your life
It's easy to succumb to overwhelming fears inside
Blindly I imagined I could
Keep you under glass
Now I understand to hold you
I must open up my hands
And watch you rise

Chorus:
Spread your wings and prepare to fly
For you have become a b_tterfly
Fly abandonedly into the sun
If you should return to me
We truly were meant to be
So spread your wings and fly
B_tterfly

I have learned that beauty
Has to flourish in the light
Wild horses run unbridled
Or their spirit dies
You have given me the courage
To be all that I can
And truly feel your heart will
Lead you back to me when you're
Ready to land

Chorus

Bridge:
I can't pretend these tears
Aren't overflowing steadily
I can't prevent this hurt from
Almost overtaking me
But I will stand and say goodbye
For you'll never be mine
Until you know the way it feels to fly

Chorus (2x)

So flutter through the sky
B_tterfly
Spread your wings and fly
