Superchunk – 100,00 Fireflies lyrics

100,00 fireflies

i have a mandolin
i play it all night long
it makes we want to kill myself

i also have a dobro
made in some mountain range
seems like a mountain range in love

but when i turn up the tone
on my electric guitar
i'm afraid of the dark
without you close to me

i went out in the forest and caught
100,00 fireflies
as they ricochet round my room
they remind me of your starry eyes

someone else might not
have made this so sad
but this is the worst night
i've ever had

cause i'm afraid of the dark
without you close to me

you won't be happy with me
give me one more chance
you won't be happy anyway
why do we still live here
in this repulsive town
all our friends are in new york

why do we keep shreiking
when we mean soft things
we should be whispering all the time
