Mariah Carey - Butterfly (Reprise)

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 butterfly
Fly abandonedly into the sun
If you should return to me
We truly were meant to be
So spread your wings and fly
Butterfly

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]

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

[Chorus]

[Chorus: x2]

So flutter through the sky
Butterfly
Spread your wings and fly
Butterfly
