Song Description

Comparing the emergence of a person's spirit after a very difficult time (winter) to the emergence of a butterfly from its chrysalis (spring)

Story Behind the Song

My friend Kadie was suffering deeply and I wanted to do something to help her keep going and raise her spirits.

Lyrics



Butterfly (Kadie's Song)



Heading down the highway, just making tracks for home
The clouds are soft and gray with unshed tears,
The trees are waving back at me with a hundred shades
of green
Spring is busy waking up the year.

Force of life so strong you can feel the old
earth humming
There's magic in the air, and it's a song of joy
that's coming,
Don't you know, you are a butterfly.

The winter of your spirit is leaving you at last
Free to let the winds of change sweep through,
The purifying fire has burned away the old dead wood
And tears, like Spring, have washed you clean and new.

When you're down there on the bottom there's
no place to look but up
And when your heart is thirsty there is life to
fill your cup,
Don't you know, your soul is being born.

The pain has gone and left your eyes with a new and
gentle light
It's not for us to know the reasons why,
Watch the wildflowers winking in the tender blades of
grass
Welcome back to life, my friend, you're doing fine.

When you're down there on the bottom there's
no place to look but up
And when your heart is thirsty there is life to
fill your cup,
Don't you know---your wings are dry, and you
can fly.
Welcome back, welcome back new butterfly.
