You my friend
You're a lot like them
But I cut your line
And you know I did
Now I'm lost in you
Like I always do
And I'd die to win
'Cause I'm born to lose

[Chorus:]
Firefly
Could you shine your light
Now I know your ways
'Cause they're just like mine
Now I'm justified
As I fall in line
And it's hard to try
When you're open wide

Take my hand
We'll be off and then
We'll come back again
To a different land
Now I like this way
You can go away
If you guess the name
You cannot replace

Firefly
Could you shine your light
Now I know your ways
'Cause they're just like mine
Now I'm justified
As I fall in line
And it's hard to try
When you're open wide

Bring me your enemies
Lay them before me
And walk away
Walk away
WALK AWAY

Firefly
Could you shine your light
Now I know your ways
'Cause they're just like mine
Now I'm justified
As I fall in line
And it's hard to try
When you're open wide

Fuck you firefly
Have you lost your light
Now I hate your ways
'Cause they're just like mine
So your lost my friend
Such a sorry end
Now I don't know why
So I choke and smile

    I think this song is awesome, and I think it's about a friend that someone finds out isn't really their friend but they're just trying to get close to them so they can hurt them. So they put an end to the game the fake is playing, as hinted at by the 'Such a sorry end' part of the song.

    But that's just a guess.

    He caught someone he looked up to doing something wrong. He knows what he did and now he's become just like gim. This disappoints him and now that he knows what his "hero" or even family member did, that person will never be the same in the eyes of the holder.

    It is about losing innocence. Dealing with the realities that invade our romanticized relationships. Whether it is after they end or when the honeymoon is over, we still have the memories and the light they leave behind. They can hurt or be a source of inspiration depending upon how we choose to move on.

    It is a beautiful song, and the lyrics are very good!

    This was my friends favorite song he died at age 16 but the irony this is he died by the choking game. It was stupid and ignorant, but I still wish I would of went to his house that day and be able to cut the rope and save his life but things don't all ways work that way.
