Rhett Miller – Fireflies lyrics

You looked like my mother did when she was 19 and not afraid to die, I started planning our future you were just 19 and still a firefly

You got terrible vision should have seen I was leaving when I first appeared, I got bit by the footlights got caught in a headlight in anyplace by here

Never say you'll never leave cause you'll never know til you try, in a jar fireflies only last for one night, only last for one night

Trains roll like gamblers in slow mo trying to find good luck, well they couldn't find love

Oh yea and I'm gonna sleep on the train tracks, it's gonna be peaceful, then it's gonna get rough

Never say you'll never leave cause you'll never know til you try, in a jar fireflies only last for one night, only last for one night

I must have had a reason for leaving, not one I could see, I must have had a a reason for leaving, must have been one, must have been me

You looked like my mother did when she was 19 and not afraid to die

For the last time, I'm not your mother, I was only 19 and still a firefly...
