Butterfly (oh my, my)

(Erika Poling)

Personifying the monarch as comparable to a love interest allows the lyrics to create colorful images of smilies and metaphors. This species lives approximately nine months, which is how long the relationship lasted. Pure poetry to a woman who reminded the writer of a blue and brown butterfly she sighted in her garden. The idea was influenced by a summer experience on a humid day in July.

I recognize your colorful cry You love the summertime It’s when you can fly so high When your wings are so bright You get higher than a kite Searching for a sultry bite From a flower, the whitest of white I’m mesmerized Oh my, my My beautiful butterfly Keep fluttering around With shades of blue and brown When you’re high, you eventually come down And I’m looking at you now Not in the sky, but on the ground And you finally found The perfect flower crown It’s clear to me You were never supposed to be In the background Shining like a royal gown You don’t even make a sound When you go up and come back down Up and down, just like a merry go ‘round I’m mesmerized Oh my, my At my beautiful butterfly Oh my, my A flower the whitest of white Don’t be afraid to come say hi Don’t be quiet, don’t be shy Show me your wings, spread your colors and fly Oh my, my A social butterfly You’re enchanting nearby But I know it’s time to say good-bye Good-bye, good-bye To my beautiful butterfly Keep fluttering around With shades of blue and brown When you’re high, you eventually come down And I’m looking at you now Not in the sky, but on the ground And you finally found The XXXXXXX XXXXXX XXXXX XXXXXX XXXXX XX XX XXX XXXX XXXXX XXXXXXXX XX XX XX XXX XXXXXXXXXX XXXXXXX XXXX X XXXXX XXXX XXX XXXXXXX XXXX XXXX X XXXXX XXXX XXX XX XX XXX XXXX XXXX XXXX XX XXX XXXXX XXXX XXXX X XXXXX XX XXXXXXXX XXXXX XXXXXXXXXX XX XXX XX XX XX XXXXXXXXX XXXXXXXXX XX XXX XX X XXXXXX XXX XXXXXXX XX XXXXX XXX XXX XXXXXX XXXX X XXXX XXX XXXXX XXXXXXXXXX XXX XXXX XXX XXXXXXXXXX XXXX XXXX XXXXX XXX XX XXXXXX XXXXX XXXXXXXXXX XX XXX XX XXXXXXXX XX XXXXXXXXX XXXXXXXXX XX XXX XX XX XXXXXXXXX XXXXXXXXX XX XXX XX XX X XXXXXX XXX XXXXXXX XX XXXXX

Two people who come off to the world as heartless, secretly understand each other's needs. Not getting attached or surrendering to one's feelings is a common attitude found in today's hook-up culture. But, many people have stronger emotions brooding beneath the surface they often fear to express. The lyrics mention two people who love each other, but prefer to keep their "private" life... well private. Hooking up turns into making love, and secretly we all desire affection.

Ein Vorhang aus Glas

By Jana Breuling

Der Text beschreibt eine vorsichtige Begegnung mit dem Leben, die zunächst zaghaft erfolgt, geschützt, durch einen gläsernen Vorhang. Immer wieder gibt es Phasen im Leben, in denen man sich zurückzieht, in einen geschützten Bereich. Dass in solchen Phasen jedoch auch viel Einsamkeit und Stillstand besteht, ist die Kehrseite. Der Text soll ermuntern, den gläsernen Vorhang zu durchbrechen, etwas zu riskieren und ein Leben in Fülle zu führen.
