about

Butterfly Kisses encompasses ten songs, including updated versions of "Angel of the Morning", and the romantic single "Little Piece of Heaven". The remaining selections are all new, with a distinct blend of country-pop, added to the acoustic, and classic folk-pop Gypsy Butterfly.

In her own words:

The journey began with "Feel Me", (a 'Song from Beyond') a song of love for a grieving mother's heart.

A touch from Travis (who was also a musician) gave me the inspiration to write new songs.

Love songs began to flow out of me starting with "You Are My Everything", written for my son and his fiancée for their wedding day. Next came the "Songs from Within", the beauty and the challenges of love relationships...

Included is a special song I wrote for my Dad, "In My Father's Arms".

Butterfly Kisses is a gift for all who have a special place in my heart. It's an amazing journey!!!

live & love life,

xxButterfly

Track Name: Angel of the Morning
There'll be no strings to bind your hands
not if my love can't bind your heart

And there's no need to take a stand
for it was I who chose to start.

I see no need to take me home,
I'm old enough to face the dawn

Just call me angel of the morning angel
just touch my cheek before you leave me, baby
Just call me angel of the morning angel
then slowly turn away from me

Maybe the sun's light will be dim
and it won't matter anyhow

If morning's echo says we've sinned,
well, it was what I wanted now

And if we're the victims of the night,
I won't be blinded by light

Just call me angel of the morning angel
just touch my cheek before you leave me, baby
Just call me angel of the morning angel
just touch my cheek before you leave me, baby

Instrumental Solo

Just call me angel of the morning angel
just touch my cheek before you leave me, baby
Just call me angel of the morning angel
Then slowly turn away from me...

Just call me angel
Just call me angel
Track Name: Don't Know Why
Don't Know Why
by Carly Thomas (Gypsy Butterfly)


CHORUS/INTRO
Don't know why I do the things I do
I don't know why
Don't know why I do the things I do
I don't know why

One day I'll see
Why you stood by me
Held me all night
Even after our fight

CHORUS

One day I'll know
Why you did not go
Loved me all night
Even after our fight

CHORUS

One day I'll find
Why you were so kind
Believin' in me
Through everything


CHORUS (2x)

Track Name: Can't Get You Out of My Head
Can't Get You Out of My Head
by Carly Thomas (Gypsy Butterfly)

No I can't get you out of my head
So I won't even try
No I can't get you out of my head
So you might as well stay for a while

Whatever life brings us
I'm sure it will be
Something beautiful
And now I can see...

That I can't get you out of my head
So I won't even try
No I can't get you out of my head
So you might as well stay for a while

The first time you kissed me
You stirred something inside
Something beautiful
And now I can't hide

That I can't get you out of my head
So I won't even try
No I can't get you out of my head
So you might as well stay for a while

INSTRUMENTAL BREAK/SOLO

(Repeat 2x)
No I can't get you out of my head
So I won't even try
No I can't get you out of my head
So you might as well stay for a while

No I can't!
No I can't...

Track Name: Gypsy Love
Gypsy Love
by Carly Thomas (Gypsy Butterfly) & Trance Blackman

The petal of a rose
the sweet perfume
Surrounding...

The noise inside
A candle's glow
Surrounding...

CHORUS
It’s in the dance
The mystery
My Gypsy Love
What I possess
I offer
My Gypsy Love
Detox from life's routine
Finding the depths in me
Is my Gypsy Love

A walk in time
Barefoot in the sand
Surrounding...

A spot by the falls
Upon the stones
Surrounding...

CHORUS (2x)

A spoken word
Within my soul
A puzzle piece
Finds it’s way
Surrounding...

Track Name: What It Took
What It Took
by Carly Thomas (Gypsy Butterfly)

A simple smile
A little glance
Is what it took for us to
Take the chance

A Sunday walk
A glass of wine
Is what it took for us to
Make love shine

CHORUS
And realize... fate brought us here
And realize... there's nothing to fear
'Cause fate brought us here... together

A gentle kiss
A slow dance
Is what is took for us to
Take the chance

A little fight
To make things fine
Is what it took for us to
Make love shine

CHORUS

INSTRUMENTAL SOLO

CHORUS

What it took was to... open our eyes
What it took was to... realize
That fate brought us here... together

You Are My Everything
by Carly Thomas (Gypsy Butterfly)

You are my everything...

When I look into your eyes
And see the tears flow
The love between us now
Continues to grow

CHORUS
You are my everything
You make my heart sing
When I'm with you
You are my everything
So beautiful and so true

When I take your hand in mine
And walk the road with you
The love between us now
Will help us make it through

CHORUS

You are my everything

Track Name: Feel Me
Feel Me
by Carly Thomas (Gypsy Butterfly)

You believed in me
But I could not believe in myself

The pain was too much
Confusion in my mind

I saw a light
It pulled me into its freedom
I entered in

You loved me
But I could not love myself

Pain was too much
Confusion in my mind

I found a place
I am at peace
And I will meet you in your sleep

And feel...
The breeze of my soul
And feel...
What I want you to know
And feel...
As I brush against your skin
And feel... me...
I'm in the wind

Feel...

Track Name: In My Father's Arms
In My Father's Arms
by Carly Thomas (Gypsy Butterfly)

Brought me into this world
A twinkle in his eye
Watched me growing up
He watched me laugh and cry

There was a time
When he seemed so far away
I always knew within my heart
On his knees he'd pray

CHORUS
'Cause in my father's arms
I find comfort
In my father's arms
I find rest
As he sings his song gently to me
I know my Daddy is the best
I know my Daddy is the best

I grew into a woman
With troubles of my own
He was always there for me
On the telephone

He always knew just what to say
To show me that he cared
I am so thankful
For the time we have shared

CHORUS (2x)

I love you, Dad.

Track Name: Walkin' in the Rain
Walkin' in the Rain
by Carly Thomas (Gypsy Butterfly)

Walkin' in the rain
With feelings I can't explain
Walkin' in the rain
Knowin' my life is not the same

How did I end up here
Which way am I goin'
How can I move ahead, oh
Simply... not knowin'

So I'm walkin' in the rain
With feelings I can't explain
I'm Walkin' in the rain
Knowing my life is not the same

Confused and on my own
Still inside I'm dreamin'
Unsure of anything, oh
Does my life have meaning

Now I'm walkin' in the rain
With feelings I can't explain
Walkin' in the rain
Knowing my life is not the same

My angel took my hand
Led me on my way
Showed me to trust again, oh
Heard the words they say:

(If you will)
Close your eyes, I will... kiss your tears
(Then I will)
Mend your heart, from the... broken years
(If you will)
Close your eyes, I will... kiss your tears
(Then I will)
Mend your heart, from the... broken years

Now I'm walkin' in the rain

Walkin' in the rain
Knowing my life is... not the same

I'm walkin' in the rain
I'm walkin' in the rain
I'm walkin' in the rain

Track Name: Little Piece Of Heaven
Little Piece Of Heaven
by Carly Thomas (Gypsy Butterfly)

Every mornin' when I wake up
Lyin' in your arms
You hold me close and I find a...
Little piece of heaven

The softness of your skin
The gentle of your soul
You hold me close and I find a...
Little piece of heaven

Little piece of heaven

I wanna stay forever
Nowhere I'd rather be
Lyin' in your arms
You holdin' me

The fresh scent of your body
The warmth of your breath
You hold be close and I find a...
Little piece of heaven

Little piece of heaven

I wanna stay forever (Stay forever)
Nowhere I'd rather be (Nowhever I'd rather be)
Lyin' in your arms (Lyin' in your arms)
You holdin' me

INSTRUMENTAL SOLO

Every mornin' when I wake up
Lyin' in your arms
You hold me close and I find a...
Little piece of heaven

The softness of your skin
The gentle of your soul
You hold me close and I find a...
Little piece of heaven

Little piece of heaven
