Patti Smith – Fireflies lyrics

I been walking
Wherefore am I walking
I been walking

If you see me walking
A-walking a-walking
If you see me walking

Don't avert your eyes
Don't turn away
Don't turn away
I'm coming to you
Oh-oh oh oh
Oh-oh oh to you

Living in steps
Till I can rest
Living in steps
Till I'm blessed by you

I and I alone
Can but do for you
To twist in my hand
The thorn of thy youth
To draw thy seed
To turn in birth
Thy sighs
(living in steps)
Thy moans
Till we can rest
Living in steps
Till I'm by you

All I ever wanted

I and I alone
I will wash your feet
And dry them with my hair
I will give to you
Every other tear
Thy breath thy spear
Thy season of mirth
Seven steps
Until I can rest
Seven steps
Til I am blessed by you
All I ever wanted
I wanted I wanted
All I ever wanted
I wanted for you

Oh-wo-wo ...
Oh-wo-wo ...
All I ever wanted
I wanted for you

Five steps
Till I can rest
Five steps
Till I'm blessed by you

Four steps
Till I can rest
Four steps
Till I'm blessed by you

All I ever wanted
I wanted I wanted
All I ever wanted
I wanted for you

I and I alone
Ghost of thy ghost
Walk I will walk
A burning stem
To illume thy night
(three steps...)
Blood of my blood
Bone of my bone
(three steps...)
Can but do for you
I and I alone

Two steps
Till I can rest
Two steps
Till I'm blessed by you

Oh oh oh ...
Can but do for you
I and I alone
Oh oh oh ...
