Lyrics

I was thinking
It was now or never
I thought we'd always be together
But you broke up with me
Because you wanted to be free

I was seventeen
And so naive
Looking back I can't believe
I gave a second thought
Until I found myself in me.

Butterflies don't question why
They feel the way they do sometimes
They just spread their wings
And they float on by
Reaching for the sun
They paint the sky
And that's what I will do
With a brand new
Butterfly tattoo

My mama made an observation.
She told me with some reservations
I think you're old enough
Go spread your wings and fly

Just remember what I taught you girl
When you go out in this crazy world
Protect your heart and be yourself
And everything will be just fine

Butterflies don't question why
They feel the way they do sometimes
They just spread their wings
And they float on by
Reaching for the sun
They paint the sky
And that's what.....

I will spread my wings wide
With the sun as my guide
I will rest on the wind
As I color the sky
I will do it all my way
As I race down the highway
I'm carefree and completely over you.
With a brand new butterfly tattoo.

Butterflies don't question why
They feel the way they do sometimes
They just spread their wings
And they float on by
Reaching for the sun
They paint the sky

Butterflies don't question why
They feel the way they do sometimes
They just spread their wings
And they float on by
Reaching for the sun
They paint the sky

One of the great things about music is that it lives on forever!!”
