Slip out the door and fly
I'm lost in time, I hover
As an angel, I hover

Embracing all myself I reel
Through the storm that is shaking me
I don't know where
I don't know why
I know I'm not going to fall

And butterflies are flying (fly away)
Right beside me
As I ascend to the clouds

N0, I won't delay
No, I won't delay
Time is like a knife for me now
I just won't delay

Time is mine
I got the blade
Change your mind
I'll make you stay

Butterflies are flying
And I just won't delay

    General CommentLacuna Coil gave a quick summary of the meaning for this song, and they said that to fly is the most intense and impossible gift of all persons. However we do not deserve this gift. I believe that this song is talking about reaching youre highest potential, and the comfort and joy you feel from it

    General CommentI love this song, it introduced me to lacuna coil and i've loved it ever since. I agree with Acetica, reach your potential, fly over the rest and take control over your life.

    My InterpretationWell this is my interpretation by paragraph ...feedback it's appreciated

    The first paragraph is describing that feeling of being powerful enough to reach ones desires and goals, and how time just seems to be stopped with this feeling...

    Being aware of yourself (embracing all myself I reel) is what gives you the strength to surpass the obstacles and difficulties... Then again the same feeling of invinsibility...

    The butterflies are a remembrance of human frailty

    Our principal frailty it's the limited time we got....mortality

    If you were to got the power of time (eternal life) it's most probably you'll do whatever you want.... but how is that possible? Maybe, again, it's just that feeling of time freezing when extreme happiness is reached....

    Don't you love when feeling like this..... I have been feeling this lately.... life seems so eternal in that state....
