Butterfly Effect (Song Lyrics)

I would not change a thing as I was reflecting in retrospect
For it was me who was changed to reflect heavens luminescence

I never saw things so right in my perspective
Until I was turned upside down defenseless
When my survival mechanism of independence
Was opened wide to the beautiful transcendence
I have never felt so awake not to mention
The world around me stays the same but I see a new dimension
I never had a certainty in all of my questions
Its like I step back and suddenly it all makes sense
The loss, the tragedy, the sorrow, the death,
The paschal Lamb, the Prophets, the Sacred Text,
The Sacrifice, the Day, the Life the Resurrection
The glory of the Christ, the Cross of Redemption
Every tear was not wasted but as it shed
Poured forth upon the fertile heart new strength
Every pain filled night of solitary brokenness spent
Was entirely worth it as I delight in this blessing
I never have known love until I had lost
I never was grateful until I could count the cost
That this grace cost me everything I ever wanted
And to think I cannot help but say God is awesome
Every earthquake every blizzard every deadly toxin
Every sunrise, every dew drop every flower blossom
I am renewed by every winter dark hour and evil plot
Something good would arise from the Cross

I would not change a thing as I was reflecting in retrospect
For it was me who was changed to reflect heavens luminescence

I lost every dream and desire to gain the priceless
I descended through fire to ascend to God’s presence
I lost every dream and desire to gain the priceless
I descended through fire to ascend to God’s presence
The gateway into mystery always allowed for investigation
As a hope filled child gazes into the sky with an imagination
However I gave way to terror of false exaggerations
So I was bound up within to a spiritual disintegration
A disinterested nation claimed no need of salvation
And therefore could not look forward to the transformation
I was caught down by doubtful deliberation
Until finally I would let go and cross the threshold of faith
I opened my eyes spread my wings emancipation
The beautiful colors the soothing breeze of regeneration
When now all life itself is a cause for celebration
God throughout time and space is always innovative
I was taught to not believe without explanation
But I found the will to believe provided me liberation
I was expected to not believe without explanation
But I found in the will to believe a profound liberation

I would not change a thing as I was reflecting in retrospect
For it was me who was changed to reflect heavens luminescence
