Well, I told you not to fall in love
I ain't the kind you can tie down
You went and did it anyway
As though I'd done you harm

Each time I went reachin' out
That's when you let go
Now don't try to pretend
That you didn't know

If you wanna love me
If you wanna hold me
Come on baby, set me free
I got to be free

If you wanna love me
If you wanna hold me
Butterflies are meant to fly
I got to be free
Sometimes like butterflies
Oh, yeah, ooh, baby, baby, ahh, yeah

Well I told ya right from the beginning
I couldn't stay for too long - that I had to go
Now, it's not because it's in my heart
Baby, I don't love you
Just because I'm meant to be
I'm meant to be free

'Cause if you wanna love me
If you wanna hold me
Come on baby, set me free
I got to be free

'Cause if you wanna love me
If you wanna hold me
Butterflies are meant to fly
I got to be free
Sometimes like butterflies

No, it's not because it's in my heart
Oh, I don't love you
It's only that I'm meant to be
I'm meant to be free

'Cause if you wanna love me
If you wanna hold me, baby
Let me fly, fly, fly, fly
I got to be free

Oh, baby
Love me, love me, love me, baby
Let me fly, fly, fly
I got to be free

Set me free
Set me free
Set me free
Oh, baby, baby, baby, baby, baby

Oh, oh, baby
Love me, love me, love me, baby
Set me free
Oh, baby

If you wanna love me
If you wanna hold me
Come on baby, set me free
I got to be free, oh

'Cause if you wanna love me
If you wanna hold me
Butterflies are meant to fly
I got to be free

'Cause if you wanna love me
If you wanna hold me
Come on baby, set me free
I got to be free
