You tuck me, 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,
Scare things wouldn't turn out right.
You would hold my hand and sing to me.
Catepillar 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.
Promise you there will come a day
Butterfly fly away.
Butterfly fly away (Butterfly fly away)
Got your wings, now you can't stay.
Take those dreams and make them all come true.
Butterfly fly away (Butterflu fly away)
You've been waiting for this day
All along you know just what to do.
