You tucked me in, turned out the light
Kept me safe and sound at night
Little girls depend on things like that

Brushed my teeth and combed my hair
Had to drive me everywhere
You were always there when I looked back

You had to do it all alone
Make a living, make a home
Must have been as hard as it could be

And when I couldn’t sleep at night
Scared things wouldn’t turn out right
You would hold my hand and sing to me

Caterpillar in the tree,
How you wonder who you’ll be
Can’t go far but you can always dream
Wish you may and wish you might
Don’t you worry, hold on tight.
I promise you there will come a day
Butterfly, fly away

Turned around and you were there
The two of us made quite a pair
Daddy’s little girl was here at last

Looked away and back again
Suddenly a year was ten
Don’t know how it got so far so fast

Butterfly, fly away (butterfly, fly away)
Got your wings, now you can’t stay
Take those dreams and make them all come true

Photos

Butterfly, fly away (butterfly, fly away)
You’ve been waiting for this day
All along you’ve known just what to do

Butterfly, butterfly, butterfly
Butterfly, fly away
Butterfly, fly away
