Marie Hines – Fireflies lyrics

Fire on your back, Sky painted black
Guessing the turns fireflies burn

Tiptoe in time
Falling behind
Losing your way
Learning to pray

Brilliant parade
Blind masquerade
Waltzing in place
Weaving through space

Flashes of light
Season the night
Living is like
Chasing fireflies

Twisting the proof
Turning from youth
Laughing at fate
Swinging too late

Loosening lips
Lost battleships
Fighting the lies
Burning inside

A gallery of could-be's
A library of would-be's
A destiny of should-be's
Waiting at your door
The mystery of maybe
A history of save me's
A risk worth taking
Waiting at your door

Fire on your back, Sky painted black
Guessing the turns fireflies burn
