She said, "Spread your wings, my little butterfly
Don't let what they say keep you up at night
And they can't detain you
'Cause wings are made to fly"
And we don't let nobody bring us down
No matter what you say, it won't hurt me
Don't matter if I fall from the sky
These wings are made to fly
- Wings by Little Mix, written by Little Mix, Iain James, and TMS(1)
Watch the video and listen to the entire song.
Thank you to Rachel Hawkins(2) for the song recommendation! I love the positive message and the upbeat tempo. I hope this song reaches people who need a positive boost. Keep soaring!
(1) Had I written the song, the lyrics would be, "And we won't let anyone bring us down" and "Won't matter if I fall from the sky," because grammar is my friend.
(2) Read my interview with Rachel Hawkins, author of the fantastic Hex Hall series.
