Lyrics

BUTTERFLY TO A STONE
Music and lyrics by Elizabeth Bernard
Copyright Elizabeth Scott (Bernard)

VERSE
When you came to me, you were so wild and free.
Baby, so was I.
How were we to know, feelings that would grow
In our hearts and minds.
All the time, we told each other we wouldn?t ask for more, only today.
And love would gently hover, a butterfly in flight,
Too lovely to tame.
Remember how I told you ?

CHORUS
I don?t want to tie this butterfly to a stone.
I can always find happiness all alone.
I don?t want to tie this butterfly to a stone.
I can always find happiness all alone.
I?ve got to tell you that I need you.
I never felt this before.
I thought I?d be so strong, I thought I?d make it alone.
But now, there?s so much more
That I?m living for.

VERSE
You were on your way, you didn?t mean to stay.
Baby, neither did I.
But the touch was right, and so many nights
Seemed to drift on by.
All the time, we told each other that love was meant to fly and never touch ground.
We were strong, so full of magic. There were no rules for us.
Love had no bounds.
Remember how I told you ?

CHORUS
I don?t want to tie this butterfly to a stone.
I can always find happiness all alone.
I don?t want to tie this butterfly to a stone.
I can always find happiness all alone.
I want to tell you that I need you,
But the words aren?t easy to say.
I want to hold you so much. I?d die for your touch.
You take my breath away.
I thought I?d be so strong, I thought I?d make it alone.
But now I?m asking you to stay.
I know our spirits are free, that?s how I want them to be.
My love, I?ll never tie you down.
Believe me, I don?t want to tie this butterfly to a stone.
Still, I can?t help but need you, baby.
I don?t want to tie this butterfly to a stone.
