Butterfly Fly Away Lyrics

You tucked me in, turned out the light
Kept me safe and sound at night
Little girls depend on things like that

Brushed my teeth and combed my hair
Had to drive me everywhere
You were always there when I looked back

You had to do it all...

    This song is about the relationship' between her and her dad. She starts of by saying all the amazing things he's done for her as she's been growing up and his difficult it must have been to cope with out her mum around. Her dad joins in the singing and together they sing about how she has to grow up sometime but will always be her daddy's little girl.

    It's that they know one day she will 'fly away' because she knows what to do and how to live her life and get the best out of it by herself .. She needs to be more independent but her dad feels like he's going to lose her in the process
    no dad wants to see his little girl grow up but every dad knows one day she has to.

    This song is about the bonding of a daughter and her father.It means that while the girl is away from her mother her father never let her feel lonely and manages doing all things alone.He knows that the girl is going to fly away once like a butterfly as she knows which path to follow now.But now she's a catterpillar which can't go far but can always dream and her father gives her the best wishes to her

    This is one of my most favorite songs ever!!
    I've never really had a dad growing up so i like to listen to this song whenever im really sad and it kinda helps but it has a strong meaning to it.

    I think of the song is to more important from other recorded with max Martin, we’ve never worked either Beth. But we’re ever not in engaged but it’s before too before, we’ve been to these ways bothering us but we’re getting the spirit with Elizabeth, and absolutely my sister.

    I think this song is very beautiful, Miley had her relationship with Liam, absolutely her childhood life to be with billy, because when I was about fourteen years old, I had Beth in my belly and sometimes when she makes me happy.

    This interpretation has been marked as poor. view anyway

    She just mentioned there in the song how wonderful her dad is, that even though he raised her alone, he still manages to be a great man that she could depend on.
