Old 97's – Firefly lyrics

You looked like my mother did when she was nineteen
Not afraid to die
I started planning our future
But you were just nineteen
Still a firefly

You got terrible vision
Shoulda seen I was leavin' when I first appeared
But I, I got bit by the front lights
I got caught in the headlights
Headed any place but here

Never say you'll never leave
Cause you never know till you try
In a jar of fireflys
Only last for one night

Hateful and heartbroked feelings come easy as a waitress on a cool summer night
And I wonder if there's any justice
Cause if there's suppossed to be justice something aint right

It's rains roll like gamblers in somo
Trying to find justice cause he couldn't love

Ah yeah, I, I want to sleep on the train tracks
It's gonna be peaceful
It's gonna get rough

Never say you'll never leave cause you never know till you try
In a jar of fireflys
Only last for one night
Only last for one night

You look like my mother did when she was nineteen
Not afraid to die
For the last time I'm not your mother
Hell I was only nineteen
Still a firefly
