Butterfly By Phoenix Morby featuring Lanie Bartlett.

This song is a pretty ballad that is very personal to songwriter Phoenix Morby.

The only accompaniment is an acoustic guitar so it is uncomplicated in its arrangement. I like the simplicity of it.

It's about giving a friend a shoulder to cry on presumably after her relationship breaks down, but deep down he wants her to be his girlfriend.

'Fly high butterfly' is his way of saying you are strong, you can get through this.

'Just take my hand and I'll show you the world' Come walk with me and you'll be my girl means he wants her to spend her life with him.

This is a sentiment we all try to achieve. Very relatable lyrics, a catchy melody and a beautiful voice. I like this song very much.
