FIREFLY LYRICS

 

 

1. FIREFLY

 

Dreaming of a distant golden sky in a perfect world where there’s no room to lie.

Gazing up into a starry night where the stars fall down and bathe in silver light.

 

The night’s so cold, but your eyes shine like gold.

Your smile is the sky and this cold grey is lit by fireflies.

 

Let me sing for you, my broken soul.

Let me play for you and rebuild a shattered world.

As the river’s running wild and free, I will swim into the fountain of your dreams.

 

The night’s so cold, but your eyes shine like gold.

Your smile is the sky and this cold grey...

 

These tiny lights, this darkened nights,

these stars so bright, like fireflies.

 

2. WISH UPON A STAR

When we close our eyes and dream, we find something in the seams of love that penetrates our hearts.

And when we wish upon a star, does it wonder if we’ve seen the lives that are torn apart?

 

And all we seem to know about is what we see for ourselves, for ourselves.

And all we seem to care about is what we see for ourselves, for ourselves.

 

But when I close my eyes and dream, I find something in the seams of hope that penetrates my heart.

And when I wish upon a star, I wish I knew what we are and why we are so blind.

 

And all we seem to know about is what we see for ourselves, for ourselves.

And all we seem to care about is what we see for ourselves, for ourselves.

 

How can we dream of happiness if we dream our dreams alone?

And how can we ignore the pain, when the pain is our own?

 

I’m wishing for a better world, not just for ourselves, not just for ourselves.

And hoping we have time enough to see it for ourselves, for ourselves.

 

3. THESE EYES

These eyes, they hold depths that are too deep,

full of stairs that are too steep; I must fall before I climb.

 

Those tears, falling unchecked down my cheek,

What is it now? I can’t see; the shadows make me blind.

 

So lead me home.

This old woman is all alone.

Long ago she fell out of the line,

all alone, she got left behind.

Lead her home.

 

That face, with lines so old and deep,

like shadows from your sleep; they’re the scars of your life.

Those tears, are they echoes of your fears?

And can you still hear the dreams that haunt you in the night?

 

So lead me home.

This old woman is all alone

Long ago she fell out of the line, all alone, she got left behind.

So lead me home.

 

This old woman is all alone

Long ago she fell out of the line,

all alone, she got left behind.

Lead her home.

 

4. WAKE UP

It seems often I’ve wondered about too many things,

and I take too much time just to think;

Why don’t fairy lights flutter?

Why wrap presents in bows?

Why have Christmas trees inside and why’s it so cold?

 

As I stare out the window, warm and cosy inside,

and if it snows this Christmas, I’ll wake up and smile.

I’ll smile.

 

Baby born in a manger, on a cold winter’s morn.

And the Angels cried, ‘Jesus, a new king is born.’

As I stare out the window, warm and cosy inside

And if it snows this Christmas

 

As I stare out the window, warm and cosy inside

And if it snows this Christmas,

And if it snows this Christmas,

And if it snows this Christmas,

I’ll wake up and smile.

Smile.

 

Wake up and I’ll smile to see you.

Wake up on Christmas morn.

 

5. RED

Well, I left from the door where the roses grow tall,

at the window, the shape of your face.

Well I smiled and I waved you goodbye,

but a tear chose to fall from your eye.

 

Is it hard that I left there without you?

Is it you that believes that I doubt you?

When it’s me that turned round when you said,

‘A rose, it stays red.’

 

Well these blossoms won’t bloom and I’ve had to assume

that my flowers will die in my palm.

Well my garden won’t grow anymore

and my roses aren’t tall by the door.

 

It’s so hard that I left there without you,

and it’s me that regrets that I doubt you,

and I should have took heed when you said,

‘A rose, it stays red.’

 

Well I dreamed if I saw you, I’d smile and implore you

and tell you how wrong that I was,

and you’d smile, understand, and you’d put in my hand

a rose.

 

6. LYING

Fallen by the roadside, inches from the car,

a whirling, frenzied vulture pack comes down to our level.

And a tiny cry is broken, stifled by the noise, pleading from minority, a voice.

 

And I don’t think I need this anymore.

And I don’t need to see the smiles when we’re all broken on the floor.

And I don’t think we need this anymore.

You’re lying.

 

Fingers tap on glasses; we’ve risen for the speech.

Encouragement to nothing, yet the price is till toosteep,

and there are compliments to the hostess, congratulations to the man

who is making our lives hell, I bet, beneath that puzzled frown.

 

And I don’t think I need this anymore.

And I don’t need to see the smiles when we’re all broken on the floor.

And I don’t think we need this anymore.

You’re lying.

You’re lying.

You’re lying.

 

7. ANY WORSE

I made a choice and I gave it all I’ve got.

Too much is little and I told them that I’m glad, but I’m not

because I lack what I want.

 

I’m resigned that I’m hungry and I’ll never quench the taste.

You asked if I’m lonely and I told you I’m ok, but I‘m not

because I lack what I want.

 

Don’t stand there and shout about all that I have missed.

Please don’t make it any worse than it already is.

 

I’ve realized I’m wrong here and I’ve thrown away my spade.

The ace is now gone here and I want to be ok, but I’m not

because I lack what I want

 

Don’t stand there and shout about all that I have missed.

Please don’t make it any worse than it already is.

 

I don’t lie. I just exaggerate,

and in my mind it’s already too late.

 

Don’t stand there and shout about all that I have missed.

Please don’t make it any worse.

 

8. THE END

Fairest maiden lost for love

Climb her tower

Send her flowers above

Comes Prince Charming

With his dark black steed

Stares adoring, so alluring is she

 

In my mind love's just a story

A fairytale that just gets boring

Where there's love there will always be the end

 

Two young lovers

Fight for their right

To love each others

Hold one another at night

 

Comes the morning

No sun to rise

Where loves poison

Strikes out both their lives

 

In my mind love's just a story

A fairytale that just gets boring

Where there's love there will always be the end

 

Where there's love there's always hate

But in our minds it's all a fairytale

And we are blind to what we will find

Where there's love there'll always be the end

 

9. TOMORROW

Tomorrow, I’ll read the letters in my head

with all the things you never said, like, ‘I love you.’

Tomorrow, I’ll go dancing in the rain,

I’ll find a flower without a name,

and every cloud will look the same.

 

And I feel every bone, hear every sigh,

watching as each day goes by,

wondering if they’ll be the same.

And I see every change that goes through me,

like a lock without a key

I’m still waiting for one day.

Can’t wait for tomorrow

 

I’ll find a star that’s not been seen,

I’ll read a beauty magazine,

I’ll sit a while and watch the sea.

 

And I feel every bone, hear every sigh,

watching as each day goes by,

wondering if they’ll be the same.

And I see every change that goes through me,

like a lock without a key

I’m still waiting for one day.

So bring on tomorrow.

 

I can’t wait for tomorrow.

Hold on to tomorrow, because tomorrow is just another day.
