Common Butterfly

CHORUS: I am just a common butterfly
I rise up and fly away
I don't try to hide-cause' when I try
that's when I make the big mistakes
and I suffer tryin' not to feel the pain

I am just a common butterfly
laying' back, waiting' for my chance to shine
singin' my songs, ready to try
cause I'm just a common butterfly
I am just a common butterfly

Do you see my colors?
Do you see my unique design?
can you see me extend my painted, winking wings?
after I fall, tryin' to try
Can you see me now in the dark?
Do I stand out from the crowd?
Do I catch your eye like a shooting star?
Can you point me out?


The world is turnin' upside down
just get up, take a look around
it's time to breathe
it's time to breathe (just breathe)
Life us a climb
and it only gets harder
but when you beat and defy the odds
you only get stronger


Fly away
Wish away
Dream away

I am just a common butterfly

Hey, there's not way to really TEACH. I just write how i feel and then make music for it. Every piece is like a little part of my diary, does that make sense? It's all about your feelings and thoughts :) I'm sure your work is great!

Have you ever put a tune or music to your songs?

Do you have a tune in your mind when you come up with them?
