Tales behind the tunes…

Music is one thing that has the most control over a persons life. One lyric and you’re enjoying yourself and the other you’re breaking down. Especially, love songs. The sad ones make you not want to ever be in love. They make the concept of love sound like the worst thing that could possibly ever happen to you. Then again, theres the happy ones. The ones  that make you crave it again. That make you want someone to hold you and tell you they love you and that you’re the one that makes their day. That make you want to feel love again. It’s like an addiction. You don’t know what its like to want it until you try it for the first time. The first time you fall in love, it changes you. It makes you experience things you never thought you could possibly feel. And once it breaks you and you fall out of it, sooner or later, you wan’t it again, you want the security and the comfort love brings. You want the love. And now, you will not settle for anything less. Because you cant bear to take any more heartbreak.

Black and white the keys
Pressed up against blues
Oppressed children born
A painted point-of-view

Pass the butterfly today
Put your heart in a hand
Wings touching the fire
Flames that understand

Street lights of darkness
Switch blades for hearts
What Momma cries for
Shots heard in the dark

Pass the butterfly today
Put your heart in a hand
Wings touching the fire
Flames that understand

Rats to a garbage meal
Living off of the streets
Tailor made for prisons
Bars for hands to meet

Pass the butterfly today
Put your heart in a hand
Wings touching the fire
Flames that understand

Children of grey prisons
Your light will find wings
Butterflies of the world
Hand to hand we’ll sing

Pass the butterfly today
Put your heart in a hand
Wings touching the fire
Flames that understand

Flowers will rise to open
Hearts of art into spring
We are the expressions
Of what hope will bring

Pass the butterfly today
Put your heart in a hand
Wings touching the fire
Flames that understand

Pass the butterfly today
