"Butterfly" as written by and Barlow/kennedy/woodcock....
Ooh yeah
For once in my life
I couldn't deny
I thought that I'd found my everything
A lover, a friend
The hours we'd spend
Just doing nothing at all
Yeah

But your need to leave
Is yours alone
Break free, let go

Butterfly
Fly, fly away from here
I know we tried
Tried though the laughter and the tears
You'll always be a part of me
And in my heart you'll always be butterfly
Fly, fly away
Fly away

Deep in your eyes
It's there that I find
All that I really ever need
Whatever I do
You know that It's you girl
In every face I see
Yeah

Your last goodbye
Was yours alone
Break free, let go

Butterfly
Fly, fly away from here
I know we tried
Tried though the laughter and the tears
You'll always be a part of me
And in my heart you'll always be butterfly
Fly, fly away

To the place you belong
Hope your healed and feeling strong
Hope that you can find a freedom in your life
In your life
My sweet butterfly

Just fly away
Just fly away

I know we tried
Tried though the laughter and the tears
You'll always be a part of me
And in my heart you'll always be butterfly
Fly, fly away
Oh fly away ooh yeah

For once in my life
I couldn't deny
I thought that I'd found my everything
A lover, a friend
The hours we'd spend
Just doing nothing at all

For once in my life
I couldn't deny
I thought that I'd found my everything

For once in my life
I couldn't deny
I thought that I'd found my everything

I thought that I'd found my everything

I thought that I'd found my everything

    General Commentbeautiful, beautiful and beautiful.

    its about a guy and a girl in a relationship,
    but then the girl has to leave, so the guy tries to be happy for her;
    she is his Butterfly.

    He is reminising on their relationship, and even though he misses her he understands why she had to go.

    My InterpretationI love this song! It's always been one of my favourites.

    It's about a relationship that seemed so perfect:
    "lover and friends"
    "hours we spent doing nothing at all"

    But for some reason she has to leave and this is him telling her that it upsets him but he understands and lets her.

    I can relate to this SO well
