September When – Butterfly lyrics

Moment in time, just for a while
The face lighted up so I could see the smile
Following her, hidden by dark
The night's not enough to keep us apart
Forbidden love, but I get near
Tense and confused
Don't know what I fear
"I love you", she said
Follow me through
And I'll find a way to get out of here
She was, she was to me
A butterfly, slipping into blue sky
She was, she was to me
A refugee running away with me
I'm happy now, though she has flown
Into the world she calls her own
On a warm wind, carried away
Not to be kept
She was not to stay
