“Butterfly Girl”

I haven’t posted a song in a long time, but I think this one is so amazing. Plus, since the butterfly is the symbol of lupus, I thought some of you would appreciate it.

On a side note, I’ll be out of town for about a week, so look for updates when I get back!

“Butterfly Girl” by Jaylene Johnson:

“Do you only remember the way you used to be
Full of fear and doubt and insecurity
Taking things that people said to build a web around you
Thinking you’d be safe in that place

I know you’re frightened and your wings are frail
But summer’s here and you’ve outgrown your silky veil
The walls of your cocoon have left no room for breathing
So break free
Break free

Butterfly Girl
Don’t you know you’re beautiful by now
Too long in hiding
Free to shine girl
Time to spread your wings
And show your colors to the world
Butterfly Girl

Don’t you know (that) you’re a precious miracle
Suffering transformed to something wonderful
All the things that had you bound have only made you stronger
So trust me and fly
Trust me and fly

Butterfly Girl
Don’t you know you’re beautiful by now
Too long in hiding
Free to shine girl
Time to spread your wings
And show your colors to the world
Butterfly Girl

Butterfly Girl
Don’t you know you’re beautiful by now
Too long in hiding
Free to shine girl
Time to spread your wings
And show your colors to the world
Butterfly Girl

Don’t you know you’re beautiful
You’re beautiful
Don’t you know you’re beautiful”

From the album, “Finding Beautiful”
