Written by Phil Everly and Warren Zevon. Recorded August 1975 for Phil’s third solo album MYSTIC LINE.

This is a very nice love song and Phil finds beautiful phrases to describe his love. Reminds me a little bit of the so-called Great Song of Love from the Bible - hope I don't offend anyone.

But much more than that, Phil is our January Butterfly himself. First, since he's born and passed away in just this first calendar month but second and in particular, because a man of his kindness is as rare to find as a January Butterfly.

And as a butterfly our soul has wings to fly and when the time comes, we have to let it go.



And, oh, my soul extended
its wings through skies to roam:
O’er quiet lands suspended,
my soul was flying home.

(Joseph Freiherr von Eichendorff, German poet and novelist, who died from pneumonia in 1857)
