"As a child I thought if I could touch the sky I could touch the face of God. As a man I learned that all I had to do was touch my own heart"

THE FIREFLY SONG

 

WHEN I WAS YOUNG, OR SO I’M TOLD

I GAVE NO THOUGHT TO GROWING OLD

I’D CHASE THE WIND TO MY HEART’S DELIGHT

AND DANCE WITH THE FIREFLIES THROUGH THE NIGHT

 

 

Refrain:   FIREFLIES, FIREFLIES

                 LIGHT UP THE DARKNESS, THRILL MY EYES

                 SPARKS OF WONDER, SPARKS OF LOVE

                 SCATTERED BY ANGELS FROM ABOVE

 

 

 OH COME LITTLE ONE AND STOP YOUR PLAY

 LEARN TO DO WHAT OTHERS SAY

 SPEND YOUR HOURS ON YOUR  ABC’S

 LEAVE THOSE FIREFLIES TO THE TREES

 

 

Repeat Refrain

 

 

 

LEARN THAT GOD IS WAY UP THERE

LEARN SOME WORDS AND CALL IT PRAYER

SEE THE WORLD THROUGH GROWN UP EYES

FORGET THE DANCE OF THE FIREFLIES

 

 

Repeat Refrain

 

 

NOW I AM OLD AND GROWING WISE

THE LIGHT FLOWS DIMLY FROM MY EYES

I SEE THIS WORLD WAS A GRAND DISGUISE

I’M GOING HOME TO MY FIREFLIES

 

 

Repeat Refrain

 

 

 

SO COME MY FRIENDS, OPEN YOUR EYES

SEE HOW REASON OFTEN LIES

WE’LL FORM A CIRCLE ‘NEATH THE SKIES

AND DANCE THE DANCE OF THE FIREFLIES

 

 

Repeat Refrain
