Butterfly
Corinne Bailey Rae Lyrics


Ooo, ooo, yeah
In my mother's house
There's a photograph
Of a day gone past
Always makes me laugh
There's a little girl
Wary of the world
She got much to learn
Get her fingers burned
An infinity
Between you and me
'Cause we're family
Yeah, said that I'd be fine
Give me all your time
And I left your side
Like a butterfly

[Chorus:]
Shower me with your love
All of everyday
You make the milk, gold sun shine on me
Lift me up so high
Watch me fly away
Would you give me life
Like a butterfly?

In my mother's house
There was happiness
I ride myself in it
Was my chrysalis
As my life unfolds
See a pattern through
Of you protecting me
And I protecting you
What was that you'd say?
"Make your own mistakes"
And when you would
Make sure that you remain the same
Now I realize
What was on your mind
When I left your side
Like a butterfly?

[Chorus]

Shower me with your love
All of everyday
You make the milk, gold sun shine on me
Lift me up so high
Watch me fly away
And you give me life
Like a butterfly?

Im a single dad of a 12yr old daughter. When I listen to this I realize that one day she will leave me to go on her own journey through life. Tear up every time. But I know she's gonna spread those wings and fly. My baby girl.

This beautiful song always makes me cry, makes me recognize that I have a great family and they support me in every step I take. I'm not alone, and most importantly I shouldn't have reason to be depressed. I'm a lucky guy.

It's allright for you

I remember when I was 16 I spent my first week away from my mother for a choir competition in Hawaii. I listened to this song at take off the plane and cried like a baby. I’m 29 now. I love my mommy.

I was feeling really down and came across this. My mom gave me this cd in 2006 and I loved it. There’s no voice like hers. This brought me to a lighter and happier mood. Missing my mom ❤️😢

The F-ing Man

2:57-3:30 is the definition of love and happiness. Amazing arrangements.
