Ray's Theme (Butterfly)

Story Behind The Song

Second verse came from walking many lonesome nights at college. The butterfly is any of us who crawl out of our cocoon into something else more wonderous.

1. Where can I go to tell of what I know
Of the pain and fear and lonely feelings?
Where can it be, that vision that I see,
Is it one of a thousand mem?ries?

2. I hear the breeze whisper* through the leaves.
So gently speaks of distant places.
Stir the ground and spin them all around,
Lift them high, see their laughing faces.

B1. I have found what was once lost a lifetime ago.
But, what?s inside is still hiding, just dying to grow.

3. Oh, butterfly, so softly you float by.
See you dance, see you rest, see your wings a-shimmer.
Since you awoke from what you were before,
You can dance with the winds of summer.

B2. Hear the waves in the moonlight, so gently they sing.
I shiver ... not knowing what the sunrise will bring.

(repeat 3)

*(alt: blow gently)
