When you love someone so deeply
They become your life
It's easy to succumb
To overwhelming fears inside
Blindly I imagined
I could keep you under glass
Now I understand to hold you
I must open up my hands
And watch you rise

Spread your wings and prepare to fly
For you have become a butterfly
Oh, fly abandonedly into the sun
If you should return to me
We truly were meant to be
So spread your wings and fly

I have learned that beauty
Has to flourish in the light
Wild horses run unbridled
Or their spirit dies
You have given me the courage
To be all that I can
And I truly feel your heart
Will lead you back to me
When you're ready to land


I can't pretend these tears
Aren't overflowing steadily
I can't prevent this hurt
From almost overtaking me
But I
Will stand and say goodbye
For you'll never be mine
Until you know the way it feels to fly

(Chorus 2x)

So flutter through the sky
Spread your wings and fly
