"Dog & Butterfly" is a song recorded by the rock band Heart. It is the title track to the band's fourth studio album Dog & Butterfly and was released as the album's second single. The song is a more subdued effort from the band, differing from past hard rock-oriented hits, as Ann and Nancy Wilson pulled from their folk music influences. The song charted moderately in the US in 1979, peaking at #34 on the Billboard Hot 100. Wikipedia

Song Lyrics

There I was with the old man

Stranded again so off I'd ran

A young world crashing around me

No possibilities of getting what I need

He looked at me and smiled

Said no, no, no, no, no child.

See the dog and butterfly. up in the

Air he like to fly. dog and butterfly

Below she had to try. she roll back down

To the warm soft ground laughing

She don't know why, she don't know why

Dog and butterfly

Well I stumbled upon your secret place

Safe in the trees you had tears on your face

Wrestling with your desires frozen strangers

Stealing your fires. the message hit my mind

Only words that I could find

See the dog and butterfly

Up in the air he like to fly

Dog and butterfly below she had to try

She roll back down to the warm soft ground

Laughing to the sky, up to the sky

Dog and butterfly

We're getting older the world's getting colder

For the life of me I don't know the reason why

Maybe it's livin' making us give in

Hearts rolling in taken back on the tide

We're balanced together ocean upon the sky

Another night in this strange town

Moonlight holding me light as down

Voice of confusion inside of me

Just begging to go back where I'm free

Feels like I'm through

Then the old man's words are true

See the dog and butterfly

Up in the air he like to fly

Dog and butterfly, below she had to try

She roll back down to the warm soft

Ground with a little tear in her eye

She had to try, she had to try

Dog and butterfly
