Butterfly (Live from The Late Show with David Letterman) lyrics

by

Mariah Carey


[Verse 1]
When you love someone so deeply
They become your life
It's easy to succ*mb 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

[Verse 2]
I have learned that beauty
Has to flourish in the light
Wild horses run unbridlеd
Or their spirit dies
You have givеn 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]
Spread your wings and prepare to fly
(Fly...)
For you have become a butterfly
Fly abandonedly into the sun
(Fly... to the sun)
If you should return to me
(And if you should return to me)
We truly were meant to be
(We were meant to be)
So spread your wings and fly
(Spread your wings, butterfly)
Butterfly

[Bridge]
I can't pretend these tears
(I can't pretend these tears)
Aren't overflowing steadily
(I can't prevent thsi hurt)
I can't prevent this hurt from
Almost overtaking me
(But I, I will stand)
But I will stand and say goodbye
(Stand and say goodbye)
For you'll never be mine
Until you know the way it feels to fly
[Chorus]
Spread your wings and prepare to fly
For you have become a butterfly
Fly abandonedly into the sun
(Fly... to the sun)
If you should return to me
(I will know you're mine)
We truly were meant to be
So spread your wings and fly
(Spread your wings and fly)
Butterfly

[Outro]
So flutter through the sky
Butterfly
Spread your wings and fly
Butterfly
