firefly

 

I’m a moth with no flame

We are angels with no devil to blame

Like a candle seeking desire

Come on time, light my fire

 

Sing it loud

Shake the night

Feed it from the fire of your ancient mind  

Sing it bold

feel it bright

Tell our elders we’re fine

 

Oh I know i’m dreaming

 

Shake your bones until they’re dry

get the dust off

Shine on little firefly

Shake your number

 

Break the mold

Kick it twice

Kick it once for the hungry beggars

and once for the trophy wives

Plug them in

turn them high

Feel the longing inside

 

Oh I know they’re dreaming

 

Shake your bones until they’re dry

get the dust off

shine on little firefly

shake your number

 

‘Cause we still cry the stars

and fall into the wild of the woods returning

back where we began

alright 

 

Give me fire give me rain

Give me tears with no shame

Give me sweet refrain

Give me sweet refrain

 

Give me mister, give me New Orleans

Give me the mist of memory

Oh and light your dreams

Said won’t you la la la la yeah

 

Shake your bones until they’re dry

get the dust off

Shine on little firefly

Shake your number
