Leona Lewis – Fireflies lyrics

If I could only see this night as another day,
I'd know you found your silence,
Instead of being wrapped up in me,
Wrapped up in this violence.

I'll make floating on water,
Looking out of the night.
There's a hole in the sky,
All those fireflies,
Don't believe in the sun,
Or the nighttime's scarce,
They're only fireflies.

Took a walk out the door,
On the day you would die,
And I looked up to the sun,
And I saw fireflies.
And now I can't see no border,
Between the day and the night.
You would turn on your life between those fireflies.

It's only fire.
It's only fire.
It's only fireflies.
