Where Do The Butterflies Dance?PDF
Words and Music by Sherri Reese

Instead of sweeping up the pieces of the life she led before
She said no - that isn’t what I want, not going back there anymore
As the front door slammed and the angry words trailed far away
She knew the ground beneath her feet was quickly giving way

Could she break out of this darkness like a butterfly
Transformed and given wings to rise
And dance the dance of joy
Where do the butterflies dance
Where do the butterflies dance
Where do the butterflies dance

She needed time to rediscover who she was and why
He said she had a heart of stone and her warmth had turned to ice
It was distance that she needed between the old ways and the new
She hoped that it would help to starve the devils in her too

Cause she was moving ahead
Not looking back
Going to find
Where the butterflies dance
Where the butterflies dance
Where the butterflies dance

Somewhere in her journey as she headed for the night
Someone called out to her, she struggled to hear the voice
She heard the heart that beats within you will tell you what is right
Don’t shut it down again my friend, you paid too great a price
She felt the stone inside her turn to grains of sand
The icy sculpture she’d become melted in her hands
Is this where the butterflies dance
Is this where the butterflies dance

The demons of the past bubbled up and burst
She wondered if this was a death or was it a rebirth
Just then...
The butterflies danced
The butterflies danced
The butterflies danced
