Lyrics:
Morning light, silken dreams take flight
as the darkness gives way to the dawn
You've survived
Now your moment has arrived
now your dream has finally been born

Black butterfly
Sail across the waters
Tell your sons and daughters
What the struggle brings
Black butterfly
set the skies on fire
Rise up even higher
So the ageless winds of time can catch
your wings

While you slept, the promise was unkept
But your faith was as sure as the stars
Now you're free and the world has come
to see
Just how proud and beautiful you are

Black butterfly
Sail across the waters
Tell your sons and daughters
What the struggle brings
Black butterfly
set the skies on fire
Rise up even higher
So the ageless winds of time can catch
your wings

Let the current lift your heart and send
it soaring
Write your timeless message clear across
the sky
So that all of us can read it
And remember when we need it
That a dream conceived in truth can never die
Butterfly

Now you're free and the world has come
to see
Just how proud and beautiful you are

Black butterfly
Sail across the waters
Tell your sons and daughters
What the struggle brings
Black butterfly
set the skies on fire
Rise up even higher
So the ageless winds of time can catch
your wings
