Diversity 03:29
Diversity by Carly Thomas (Gypsy Butterfly) Don't want fantasy Don't want make believe Just want reality My life in diversity Don't wanna live a lie Don't want life to pass me by Just want reality My life in diversity Life is a mystery Constant changing All in a moment's time Rearranging All in a glance In a moment's time Not just by chance But in a moment's time There is a plan There is a way Trust in the process And seize the day Don't want fantasy Don't want make believe Just want reality My life in diversity Don't wanna live a lie Don't want life to pass me by Just want reality My life in diversity My life in diversity ©2002 Song of Joy Publishing (Canada)

Mask 04:43
Mask music by Trance Blackman; words by Carly Thomas (Gypsy Butterfly) Time to look in your heart and see Who you were meant to be The plan, the purpose for you alone What is the message you are to own CHORUS Take off your mask Don't run and hide Keep you you are inside Taste the freedom of who you are Give those around you The gift of who you are Once a child so full of fear Wondering why am I here By the world, yes you have grown Lies and pain are all you've known CHORUS BRIDGE Turn around, look ahead Discover what is there instead CHORUS Just be yourself ©1999 Song of Joy Publishing (Canada); ©2002 Nothing So Right Music

Real Me by Trance Blackman & Carly Thomas (Gypsy Butterfly) I was trying to find my own place Wondering where I'd fit in Playing your game didn't work for me So I made my own rules to win A small child with such big dreams Lost in a world of fear No one to come stand beside me To show me that they believed Now I believe CHORUS I was good enough just being me Who I was and what was inside Good enough just being me And that's something just couldn't see The real me Oh, the real me An angel came and touched my pain Showing me someone cared Leaving a life far behind me That no one even seemed to share Now I compare CHORUS INST. BREAK BRIDGE Good enough Yes I was good enough CHORUS I'm good enough just being me Who I am and what is inside I'm good enough just being me And it's something I want the world to see Yeah, the real me Yeah, the real me Oh, the real me ©2003 Nothing So Right Music / Song of Joy Publishing (Canada)

Take Me Away 03:31
Take me away with you Take me away You fill me with your passion Breathe new life into my dreams Make my spirit soar to heaven All else fades away, so it seems... Take me away with you Take me away Take me away with you Take me away Through your eyes I saw your soul In a single moment, time it froze No words spoken, yet in a glance Your heart revealed, left me in a trance... Take me away with you Take me away Instrumental Solo Take me away with you Take me away Take me away with you Take me away ©2002 Song of Joy Publishing (Canada) / Soundsational Audio Prod.

My Child 03:35
My Child by Carly Thomas My child don't you know I'm watching you I know your every move It's not exactly what others see But what's inside your heart CHORUS Run to me Lay your burdens at my feet Come to me Taste my wine that is so sweet And breathe in my Spirit I'll set you free My child I know what's been Going through your mind I hear your every thought You can turn those thoughts to Mine They're written in my word CHORUS My child don't turn away again It's time to take a stand Am I what you truly believe I'm here with My open Hand CHORUS ©1999 Song of Joy Publishing (Canada)

Open Your Soul by Carly Thomas (Gypsy Butterfly) The Spirit's eye sees What we do not see And in it's time It brings what needs to be The Spirit's eye knows What we do not know And in it's time All begins to show Open your soul To the life it brings You are chosen for this time So listen very carefully So listen very carefully 'Cause on this journey you must walk The road given to you, just walk The world needs to know Open your soul And listen very carefully So listen very carefully ©2002 Song of Joy Publishing (Canada)

Deciding Moment by Carly Thomas (Gypsy Butterfly) & Trance Blackman Looked around the corner I saw you there But you weren't really I knew not where You looked right through me Like I was a ghost And turned away from me That's what hurt the most CHORUS Your deciding moment Leads you now To her darkness Where you'll dwell Your deciding moment Leads you in her fire Where she'll just leave you In the ruin of your desire Then she handed you A glass of false champagne You drank of her potion Never to be the same Then I watched her Take you in her arms And leave you trembling Within all her charms CHORUS What you thought was real Was just a life So sorry... ©2002 Song of Joy Publishing (Canada) / Nothing So Right Music

Mistake by Carly Thomas (Gypsy Butterfly) It's just a mistake A little mistake But life will go on And you won't break It's an error in judgement Based on what you thought But knowledge it grows From what you're taught It's a mistake A big mistake But you will grow From each one that you make Forgive in your heart It's the hidden key To open new doors With new life to see CHORUS So pick yourself up And move ahead There's life in your future But your past is dead Let yourself go And move ahead You'll learn from it all Make new choices instead It's just a mistake Just a mistake Discover the moment Of each chance that you take Restore and awaken And find a new road Giving you direction Without a heavy load It's just a mistake Just a mistake You gotta keep livin' 'Cause there's more that you'll make Just keep movin' Towards your dream And follow your heart Learn what your lesson means CHORUS ©2002 Song of Joy Publishing (Canada)

Friends Forever words & music by Carly Thomas God brought you all in my life We will never be apart Each and everyone of you Live deep within my heart CHORUS And you're all a gift to me in my life Yes you're all a gift to me In my life... We walked through the pain Into healing - we came so far We were all set free to be Just who we are CHORUS INSTRUMENTAL SOLO BRIDGE We discovered the truth in us We were set free to fly Spread our wings as eagles And soar to the sky As we go on life's journey May we always together stand Together as one in spirit Friends Forever hand in hand CHORUS (2x) Friends forever, hand in hand Friends forever, hand in hand ©1998 Song of Joy Publishing (Canada)

about

A diverse style of folk-rock with soft passionate pop and a little jazzy flavor. Elements of Mae Moore, Juice Newton, Carly Simon, Carole King and even a touch of Madonna...

Carly Thomas (Gypsy Butterfly) is a free spirited, inspirational soul, originally from Penticton, BC, Canada.

The singer/songwriter has developed a sound that rings true to the heart - bringing a message of light, love and healing.

Her album, Diversity... Now, is just that. The musical styles range from soft rock and easy listening, to modern folk, intertwined with flavors of pop and inspirational roots. She sings with an angelic voice direct from her passionate heart, to the ear of anyone who has seen pain, struggle and even tragedy. Her desire is to inspire true healing within and to help you discover your real passion in life - the 'real you' - and have the courage to go out and get it. Her motto is to "just be yourself".

Carly sings from experience. Personal growth has been a lifetime staple on Gypsy Butterfly's path. Her words will awaken your mind, challenge your thoughts and illuminate the dark corners within. Songs like My Child, Wind Whispers, and Open Your Soul will speak to your heart, while others like Mask and Mistake are lessons to learn. Her signature song, Friends Forever is an ongoing crowd favorite that will inspire, captivate and induce emotions that most of us keep dormant. Gypsy Butterfly's music will most certainly move you.

Her beauty is both outward and within, her voice is gentle but confident, and her message is love.

"We discovered the truth in us - we were set free to fly. Spread our wings as eagles and soar to the sky..." from the song Friends Forever.
