Lori McKenna – Fireflies lyrics

Before you met me I was a fairy princess
I caught frogs and called them prince
And made myself a queen.
Before you knew me I traveled around the world
I slept in castles and fell in love
Because I was taught to dream.
I found mayonnaise bottles
And poked holes on top to capture Tinkerbell
And they were just fireflies to the untrained eye
But I could always tell.

I believe in fairytales and dreamers' dreams
Like bed-sheet-sails
And I believe in Peter Pan
And miracles and anything I can to get by...
And fireflies.

Before I grew up I saw you on a cloud.
I could bless myself in your name
And pat you on your wings.
Before I grew up I heard you whisper so loud
"Life is hard, and so is love, child,
Believe in all these things. "
I found mayonnaise bottles
And poked holes on top to capture Tinkerbell.
And they were just fireflies to the untrained eye
But I could always tell.

I believe in fairytales and dreamers' dreams
Like bed-sheet-sails
And I believe in Peter Pan
And miracles and anything I can to get by...
And fireflies.

Before you met me I was a fairy princess
I caught frogs and called them prince
And made myself a queen.
Before you knew me I traveled around the world
I slept in castles and fell in love
Because I was taught to dream...
