Butterfly Fly Away

I don't know who out there has seen 'Hannah Montana: The Movie,' but if you haven't, I think you should. I just watched it (again, Erin and I saw it the night it came out) and remembered how much I love it. I mean, the beginning is a little cheesy, but don't give up on it. Give it half an hour or so and you'll be fine.
I love the relationship that Miley has with her dad. (In the show and movie it's her real dad, aka Billy Ray Cyrus) In her crazy 'best of both worlds' life, he's always there. In the movie she writes a song about their relationship after everything else is falling apart; boys, her Hannah life, etc. It's called Butterfly Fly Away. Here are the lyrics. And then I'll tell you why I love it :)

You tucked me in, turned out the light
Kept me safe and sound at night
Little girls depend on things like that

Brushed my teeth and combed my hair
Had to drive me everywhere
You were always there when I looked back

You had to do it all alone
Make a living, make a home
Must have been as hard as it could be

And when I couldn't sleep at night
Scared things wouldn't turn out right
You would hold my hand and sing to me

Caterpillar in the tree
How you wonder who you'll be
Can't go far but you can always dream

Wish you may and wish you might
Don't you worry, hold on tight
I promise you there will come a day
Butterfly fly away

Butterfly fly away, butterfly fly away
Flap your wings now you can't stay
Take those dreams and make them all come true

Butterfly fly away, butterfly fly away
We've been waiting for this day
All along and knowing just what to do
Butterfly, butterfly, butterfly, butterfly fly away

Butterfly fly away
Butterfly fly away

Now, this part of the movie is one of the times I may or may not get a little teary eyed and choked up. This reminds me so much of me and my dad. I mean, he didn't raise me on his own or anything, but he's just always been there. Like the first stanza, he was always there to tuck me in at night. Even when I got older, he would still come in and that was our time to catch up and just chat for a few minutes. I loved it! Even now, hardly a day goes by that we don't talk on the phone. He's always behind me in my goals and my dreams. He has full confidence in me. He's always there. Every concert, every soccer game (even the away ones), I always have his support. I am so lucky to have the relationship with him that I do. It's so hard to see my friends going through things and not having that relationship. I mean, sure, we have our days. Arguments, disagreements, etc. everyone has that, but I'm so lucky, and am reminded of how lucky I am so often!
