"She's A Butterfly" as written by John Rich and Kenny Alphin....
She remembers when she first got her wings
And how she opened up that day
she learned to sing
Then the colors came, erased the
black and white
And her whole world changed
when she realized

She's a butterfly, pretty as the crimson sky
Nothing's ever gonna bring her down
And everywhere she goes
Everybody knows she's so glad to be alive
She's a butterfly

Like the purest light in a darkened world
So much hope inside such a lovely girl
You should see her fly, it's almost magical
It makes you want to cry, she's so beautiful

God bless the butterfly,
give her the strength to fly
Never let her wings touch the ground
God bless the butterfly,
give her strength to fly
Never let her wings touch the ground

God bless the butterfly,
give her the strength to fly
Never let her wings touch the ground
God bless the butterfly,
give her the strength to fly
Never let her wings touch the ground

    General CommentThis song was written about a teenage girl named Katie Darnell who died of cancer. She was also the inspiration for Big & Rich's "This Life".

    General CommentMy best friend was diagnosed w/stage 4 esophagus cancer in feb. of this year. When first diagnosed she weighed about 150 lbs, 5'7". And as of today she is 83 lbs soaking wet! She is currently in the hospital; had a feeding tube inserted two days ago. I know our time is limited...so I have been in much need for any sort of inspiration and/or music. I looked up this song because she and I once listened to this Martina McBride CD; while she was going thru dialysis (3 years) and a kidney transplant. Yes,she is a fighter! Anyway, I looked up the lyrics of this song, have not heard it for years...and then saw the meaning of it. Certainly fits my situation, however my friend is 48, wife of 25 years, 2 sons, first grandchild due in March of 2012, she is not a teenager, but too young for all this. I dedicate this song to her.
