Scorpions are a German hard rock band formed in 1965 by guitarist Rudolf Schenker, who is the band's only constant member (although Klaus Meine has been lead singer for all their studio albums).

In the temple of gods
The day had come to come together
In the early morning sun
They saw that girl that come to heaven 

They ask her 'bout life on earth
If it was getting any better
She told 'em someone took her life
If they could send her back
Just one more time
She knew that someone feels so blue 

Wouldn't it be nice, hold on
To spread the wings and fly, don't kill the butterfly
To see him one more time, hold on
To be a yellow butterfly, don't kill the butterfly 

He's been sitting on the bay
Lost inside a cloud of darkness
When I saw the butterfly
Dancing in the wind
The story goes
He knew that she was still so close 

Wouldn't it be nice, hold on
To spread the wings and fly, don't kill the butterfly
To see him one more time, hold on
To be a yellow butterfly, don't kill the butterfly
