  1. Butterfly

From the recording Butterfly

This song is dedicated to the awesome Lou Gimenez.  As you may have seen, this record was mixed by Lou at his studio "The Music Lab", so you can imagine that we spent a great deal of time together.  I believe in my heart that this record would not have the magic it does without his collaborative effort with me throughout the mixing process.  But during many of our long days we had some awesome philosophical talks about life, family, relationships, etc. etc.... and one of those talks was the inspiration for this song. i literally went home one night after a session, and the next day this song just flowed out in one straight shot. It's a bit different production wise than the other material, but I felt it was an important song and the spirit of it made it belong with it's brothers and sisters in this collection. :) I would also like to thank Lou so much for his help in playing most all of the guitars on this one and helping me with his valuable production ideas that really gave this song the wings it wanted to have!

Lyrics

BUTTERFLY
 
Can't believe the summer's come and gone
I can feel the winter comin' on 
the sun sets faster every day
 
'n I can see that you've been gettin' restless
I'm bettin' you'll be gone by Christmas
and it's about time you broke away
 
and it's Alright
Spread you wings, prepare to fly
and it's alright
go be a butterfly
 
They say that there's a time for every season
and I know that you've got your reasons
'n everybody needs to find their own release
 
'n like a boat out on the clear blue ocean
settin' sail into the wind that's blowin'
I'm hoping that you find everything that you seek
 
and it's Alright
Spread you wings, prepare to fly
and it's alright
go be a butterfly
ooh a butterfly
go be a butterfly
oh oh
Fly, Fly
and it's Alright
Spread you wings, prepare to fly
and it's alright
go be a butterfly
 
Fly, fly, my butterfly
