"Butterfly" as written by and John L. Wes Montgomery....
(J. Brooks, T. Feehan)

You should know that my smile was leading to this
It's all in this letter
Strange how your wings ache like a son of a bitch
Just when you're, just when you're finally better

(fly away)
Butterfly

Someone like you just better watch where you step
People have been known to bleed
See how my words read like a kick in the head
Sometimes that's just what you need

(fly away)
Butterfly
Butterfly

Fly away my butterfly
Fly away
Fly away my butterfly
Fly away

Don't you know that my smile was misleading
I have outgrown my cocoon
By the time that you read what you're reading
I will have flown to the moon

Fly away my butterfly
Fly away
Fly away my butterfly
Fly away...

You should know that my smile was leading to this

    General CommentThe final track on The Color Of Silence album which has a theme. The break up of a relationship.

    This song is about the Lawyers letter granting a separation or divorce. The butterfly symbolising freedom.

    It's all here in this letter"
