Butterfly Fly Away

You tucked me in, turned 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
