Ron Pope – Fireflies lyrics

When the street lights come on and the fireflies flicker
I am walking her home
Making plans

With her shoes in her hands I am watching her dance
As the hem of her dress gently kisses the grass

It
suddenly rains on us
She is laughing and turns up her hands

Like autumn turns leaves
Winter will breathe cold on our necks
Snow in our paths
Wherever she goes
All that I know about us is that beautiful things never last
That's why fireflies flash


When this summer time ends we will not part as friends
Things were promised in blood
We have sinned


Now there's tears in her eyes as she's screaming goodbyes
I run 'long side the car
Turning numb to the sound


I notice a chill in the air
September is creeping up fast


Like autumn turns leaves
Winter will breathe cold on our necks

Snow in our paths
Wherever she goes
All that I know about us is that beautiful things never last
That's why fireflies flash

Innocence didn't mean we're immune to these things
Let's blame the passage of time
Love and loss
Truth
It costs more than I can spare right now
Maybe it's simpler to lie


Like autumn turns leaves
Winter will breathe cold on our necks
Snow in our paths
Wherever she goes
All that I know about us is that beautiful things never last
That's why fireflies flash


Oh
Oh
That's why fireflies flash

    There are beautiful things in this world of our, but we can't count on everything to be everlasting. We know the season will come but a love may be fleeting. Still optimistic though, beautiful things last. And its the little things- it's the fireflies. Time passes quickly than any of us would like for it to. So it's time to open up our eyes and appreciate the beautiful things on our lives while they last. The sad times are what make the happy ones wonderful(:
