about

This is one of the first songs Greg and Alan ever worked on together.

lyrics

Verse 1:
I swore it up and down that this would be a sure thing,
And then I closed my eyes, and all I got was short changed,
Oh irony, why must you always have to play games with this heavy heart,
It's had enough,
I tried to learn and fly, and all I earned was land wings,
And then I tried again, and all I learned was how to sink,
Into your arms, into your life.

Chorus:
So please, please, stay simple and unique,
You firefly; you light my sky,

Verse 2:
And now the walls come tumbling, feels like falling over,
And you're beside yourself, and I'm just getting older,
The world is weighing down, it's turned my tired heart,
Into a block of stone,
I leapt into the sky, and landed on your heart strings,
And then I realized that this would be the closest thing that I'd get,
To being close to you.

Chorus:
So please, please, stay simple and unique,
You firefly; you light my sky,
Oh why, Oh why,
You light my sky.
