Miley Cyrus – Butterfly Fly Away lyrics

You tuck me in,
Turn 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
Butterfly Fly Away (butterfly fly away)

Flap your wing now you can't stay
Take those dreams and make them all come true
Butterfly Fly Away (butterfly fly away)
We been waiting for this day
All along and know just what to do
Butterfly Fly Away

(Butterfly Fly Away)

(Butterfly Fly Away)

    This song reminds me of me and my dad. My mother left us.(she thought that me and my dad were worthless) so she left for another man. My dad lost his job when I was 2, and he didn't have enough money to take care of me. Times were hard for me. Me and my dad lived on the streets. We once didn't eat for 2 weeks! But then a miracle happened, some random lady came up to us and gave us enough money! I remember all those times.
