Butterfly

Sat, 10/04/2014 - 16:35 -- L31gh4

There once was a little girl

Went home to the wrong house

Hid it all, behind a smile

Said I just need a little love

But knew she’d never find it in that place

She prayed,

Lord, make me a butterfly

I need wings to get outta this house

Let the wind take me anywhere

Just don’t make me cry here

She spent her life seeing bruises in the mirror,

And staring out the window,

Saying I just need a chance

I could be somebody, if I got outta this place

She prayed,

Lord, make me a butterfly

I need wings to get outta this house

Let the wind take me anywhere

Just don’t make me die here.

She reached out for help, and was turned down

The truth she told was seen as lies

It seemed her prayers would not be heard

But she never lost the faith

So the Lord made her an angel

Gave her wings to get outta that house

Let the wind take her to heaven.

There once was a little girl

Went home to Jesus.
