FIREFLIES

Fireflies touch the sky, an open blaze and a glass of rye
Sitting here and I wonder why I’m sitting here
Warm breeze, lunar light, ivy climbs into the night
In my dreams I have to fight to stay awake



And I know damn well if I close my eyes I’ll meet her in my mind
I know damn well if I fall asleep I’ll see you there
See you on the other side, yeah yeah
On the other side



Northern lights frame the frieze, dance beyond the swaying trees
I whistle through all the melodies that she never heard
White sheets, fireside, riding on a lucid tide
Sitting here and I can’t decide if she’s sitting here



And I know damn well if I close my eyes I’ll meet her in my mind
I know damn well if I fall asleep I’ll see you there
See you on the other side, yeah yeah
On the other side

And I know damn well if I close my eyes I’ll meet her in my mind
I know damn well if I fall asleep I’ll see you there
See you on the other side, yeah yeah
On the other side
