Lyrics: Kees Koedoder

Butterfly, when I was at nine a teacher of mine
Said who kills is cruel, who makes war is a fool
And only peace is a tool, that’s what I learned in school
So I kept livin’ by the rule

Butterfly, I’m over twenty now, livin’ in plenty
But I carry a gun, I’m in a war that ain’t done,
In a war that can’t be won, at home’s my lovin one
Who now knows making war ain’t fun

Butterfly, fly from this battlefield up to the sky
To my love one and tell her that I
Learn to kill now and I don’t know why

Butterfly, see, you must fly over oceans for me
Take my love to my love one on your satin wings
My butterfly

Butterfly, you flew in this morning from out of the blue
Almost on his hand, in the burning sand
Tell me was it meant, how can a butterfly land
On the body of my soldier friend?

Butterfly, fly from this battlefield up to the sky
To my love one and tell her that I
Learn to kill now and I don’t know why

Butterfly, see, you must fly over oceans for me
Take my love to my love one on your satin wings
My butterfly

Butterfly, go, will you come back to me to show
That you found her and brought her all my love
And your wings have been strong enough?

Butterfly, fly from this battlefield up to the sky
To my love one and tell her that I
Learn to kill now and I don’t know why

Butterfly, see, you must fly over oceans for me
Take my love to my love one on your satin wings
My butterfly

Love on your satin wings, my butterfly
