Butterfly, take me out of this town. I’m trying to leave but there’s too much holding me down. It seems so easy the way that you breeze by. I’d like to come along and enjoy the ride so I can be free like you. Butterfly, can I borrow your wings? I’d like to fly for a while and see a newer scene. Afterwards then I could decide if I still want to run and hide.
A young girl admires the beauty of a soaring butterfly and dreams of traveling like her winged friend. She longs for adventure and to see the world, so her imagination gives her wings! Free as a butterfly, she chases the wind and sees the unknown—but something is wrong. The little butterfly girl misses home and wishes she had someone to fly beside.
Based on singer/songwriter Erica Sunshine Lee’s song “Butterfly,” this is a whimsical tale that shows how even chasing dreams can require great sacrifice. It is a mirror reflection of Erica’s own adventures and displays the willingness to throw out conventional expectations to create your own destiny. Chase your imagination, follow your dreams, don’t be afraid to take risks, and always live and love to the fullest.
