The Butterfly Effect

Story Behind The Song

The tune was written by the Nashville songwriting team of Greg Matthews and Bill O'Hanlon. Hunt first discovered it while attending a songwriter round in Nashville, TN when Matthews sang it as part of his set. She said she was incredibly moved by the song and didn't hesitate to ask Matthews for permission to record it. He told the Independent Superstars Hall of Fame inductee that the story was inspired by his relationship with his wife Jamie, who he is still madly in love with after many years of marriage. According to the popular music blog Sleeping Bag Studios, "Luanne has a genuinely special tune on her hands with 'The Butterfly Effect.' The writing is superb and Luanne got right to the heart of this song without question. The track is stunningly well-suited to the singer's strengths and its mesmerizing melody is brilliantly written and produced to pure, audio perfection."

Verse 1
Thought I'd fell in love before
Forever at first sight
Fell right back out again
Shattered dreams and bad goodbyes

Verse 2
From the moment we first met
Goosebumps and butterflies
Afraid they'd fade just like the rest
But after all this time
Think I finally got it right

Still hear music in my head
Everytime I hear you laugh
Something flutters in my chest
You still get to me like that
Can't believe we've made it here
And the magic hasn't faded yet
Every time you're near I get
The butterfly effect

Verse 3
Can't quite say just what it is
That keeps us so brand new
Still feel the first time in your kiss
One touch and boy I'm through
Just know when I'm with you

My heart skips a beat when you walk in the room
Your smile tells me these butterflies still get to you to


-Good production values with solid instrumentation and a nice arrangement.
-The vocals are nice in an adult contemporary or easy listening kind of way.
-Not contemporary feeling - could work in a vintage placement for Sync?
