Black Butterfly Lyrics

Morning light, silken dream to flight
As the darkness gave way to dawn
You've survived, now your moment has arrived
Now your dream has finally been born

Black Butterfly, sailed across the waters
Tell your sons and daughters
What the struggle brings
Black Butterfly, set the skies on fire
Rise up even higher
So the ageless winds of time can catch your wings

Ooh... ooh

While you slept, the promise was unkept
But your faith was as sure as the stars
Now you're free, and the world has come to see
Just how proud and beautiful you are


Let the current lift your heart and send it soaring
Write the timeless message clear across the sky
So that all of can read it and remember when we need it
That a dream conceived in truth can never die

Cause now that you're free and the world has come to see
Just how proud and beautiful you are


Yeah, yeah, yes

Be energized by your spiritual beauty and significance. From adversity brings strength and character. Set a standard and for those who come after you as your ancesters did for you. Your past informs your future: majesty is inherent in you.

I think this songs' meaning is to always keep your head up, be faithful, and even though you go through struggles, let them be a lesson for others.
