Lyrics
A Thousand Butterflies

Songs in the underground, beats thumping...
A whispering roar rising, out on the streets
our hearts are pumping...
Seeing Yes everywhere, crowds stirring...
An aye on a high hillside; wandering bands
with flags unfurling...
A thousand butterflies are waking with a sigh,
we're shrugging off the spin cocoon,
telling yesterday goodbye...

Out in the squares and bars, it's jumping...
We'll soon turn it round if we
let our hopes loose and set them running,,,
We can do anything, still buzzing...
We're seeing it, winging it,
being the change we know is coming...
A thousand butterflies are learning how to fly,
to let the spirit take them where
the music's playing sweet and high....

Things didn't go our way, we're hurting...
But we found a new power: this time we lost
but we got stronger...
Keeping the dream alive, still burning,
for things to be different here,
keep making waves, the tide is turning...
A thousand butterflies are reaching for the sky...
We're heading for a new tomorrow,
couldn't stop us if you tried...
