Butterfly (Live At Webster Hall)

Butterfly (Live At Webster Hall)

Corinne Bailey Rae

In my mother's house
There's a photograph
Of a day gone past
Always makes me laugh
There's a little girl
Wary of the world
She got much to learn
Get her fingers burned
An affinity between you and me
Was a family
Said that I'd be fine
Gave me all your time
And I left your side
Like a butterfly

Shower me with your love
Colour everyday
You make the milk-gold sun
Shine on me again
Lift me up so high
Watch me fly away
And you give me life
Like a butterfly

In my mother's house
There was happiness
I wrapped myself in it
Was my chrysalis
As my life unfolds
See a pattern through
Of you protecting me
And I protecting you
What was I to say?
'Make your own mistakes
And when you're grown
Make sure that you remain the same.'
Now I realize
What was on your mind
When I left your side
Like a butterfly?

Shower me with your love
Colour of everyday
You make the milk-gold sun
Shine on me again
Lift me up so high
Watch me fly away
Give me life
Like a butterfly

Shower me with your love
Colour everyday
You make the milk-gold sun
Shine on me again
Lift me up so high
Watch me fly away
And you give me life
Like a butterfly
