Black Butterfly
by Deniece Williams



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

(Chorus)
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 age less 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

Chorus

(Bridge)
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

(Instrumental Bridge)

'Cause now you're free
and the world has come to see
just how proud and beautiful you are

Chorus

Fly
Butterfly
Yea, yea, yea, yeah
