Black Butterfly Lyrics

Morning light, silken dream 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, sailed across the waters
Tell your sons and daughters

    My interpretation of the song black butterfly means to me...its carries all the souls of our ancestors and their struggles but reminds us that through it all there is transformation of change and perseverance..and never forget our past
