Track Name: Oh Butterfly, Do Not Yet Float Away
Butterfly, butterfly, please don't you float away,
On your flower you should stay,
At least for another day,

Butterfly, butterfly, your wings fan aside my tears,
Your soft flutter soothes my fears,
I've a storm-less mind when you are near,

You're as fair as the wind is free,
You're like mother and child,
Cast your arms towards me,
We'll be bounded and wild,

Butterfly, butterfly, please don't you depart,
Your search for love should never start,
You can occupy my empty heart,

Butterfly, butterfly, in me you do revive,
Times that are sadly not alive,
In my memories you dive,

You're as fair as the wind is free,
You're like mother and child,
Cast your arms towards me,
We'll be bounded and wild,

Butterfly, butterfly, when I'm deaf and when I'm blind,
You'll still linger in my mind,
And your glow will illuminate my sky,

Butterfly, butterfly, you say so much with little sound,
I know this is not your native ground,
And other gardens you are bound,

Track Name: Schmetterling, Flieg Davon, Nur Noch Nicht Jetzt
Schmetterling, Schmetterling, flieg davon, nur noch nicht jetzt,
Ich kann dich nicht ewig halten, in meinem Netz,
Muss dich gehen lassen zuletzt,

Schmetterling, Schmetterling, Du bläst weg meine Sorgen,
Flieg nicht davon, so bleib doch bis morgen,
Ach, könnt' Zeit ich mir borgen,

Du bist schön wie der Wind ist frei,
Du bist Mutter und Kind,
Schließ die Arme um mich,
Sie sind warm und gütig,

Schmetterling, Schmetterling, flieg noch nicht fort,
Du liebst es zu reisen, bist mal hier, und mal dort,
Bitte bleib ein Weilchen vor Ort,

Schmetterling, Schmetterling, in Erinnerungen willst du tauchen,
Süße Stunden, sie verrauchen,
Meine Träume aber sind alles was ich brauch,

Du bist schön wie der Wind ist frei,
Du bist Mutter und Kind,
Schließ die Arme um mich,
Sie sind warm und gütig,

Schmetterling, Schmetterling, mein bist du in Gedanken,
Gefühle, tief und rein, sich in den Himmel ranken,
Wo mein Land der Träume kennt keine Schranken,

Schmetterling, Schmetterling, du gleitest mit den Winden,
Aber ich kann dich nicht an mich binden,
Wohl an, neue Gärten such' und finde,

Butterfly, butterfly, fly away, but not just yet,
I can't hold you forever in my net,
Need to let you go at last,

Butterfly, butterfly, you blow away all my sorrows,
Don't fly away, stay at least until tomorrow,
If only I could borrow some time,

You are beautiful like the wind is free,
You are mother and child,
Throw your arms around me,
They are warm and kind,

Butterfly, butterfly, don't fly away just yet,
You love to travel, at times you're here, then you're somewhere else,
Please stay at this place for a while,

Butterfly, butterfly, in memories you want to dive,
Dulcet hours, they fade,
But my dreams are all I need,

You are beautiful like the wind is free,
You are mother and child,
Throw your arms around me,
They are warm and kind,

Butterfly, butterfly, you are mine in thought,
Feelings, deep and pure, ascend into the sky,
Where my land of dreams holds no limits,

Butterfly, butterfly, you float with the winds,
And I can't hold you back,
For other gardens you must search and find,
