lyrics

Whatever the forecast,
When the chances are slim,
Before a change in the pressure,
It was tranquil until.

Adverse conditions,
Pulling deep from inside,
A shower of strength,
That even logic defies.

Stranger things have happened,
Why however it still flew,
There's no explanation,
On how it got through.

Odds against, face the strain,
Butterfly in a hurricane,
Odds against, all hope remains,
Butterfly in a hurricane.

Whatever the weather,
Maybe a lucky escape,
When all hands are pointing,
The fickle finger of fate.

Paper thin wings,
Into an eye of a storm,
Showing no fear,
Just keeps on flying on and on.

Stranger things can happen,
It's no real surprise,
Still no indication,
On how it can fly.

Odds against we face the strain,
Like a butterfly in a hurricane.
Against the grain all hope remains,
For the butterfly in the hurricane.

Thunderclouds roll in again,
For the butterfly in a hurricane.
And if you say oh what became,
It fluttered by through wind and rain.

Odds against we face the strain,
Butterfly in a hurricane.
At odds again we face the strain,
Like a butterfly in a hurricane.

Lightning strikes with no restraint,
For the butterfly in a hurricane.
Some elements you cannot tame,
Butterfly raising the game.
