We catch so many things in our life
Like bugs, and balls, bad colds
Someone specials attention
We even sometimes “catch a hint.”
But my favorite thing to catch is memories

Ill catch them in the net of my heart and mind
Put them in a jar
On the windowsill at night
And call them fireflies

So let’s run for tonight
Like children chasing butterflies
We’ll forget about who we are
And not over think who we might become

We’ll spend the night, our money, our time

Caught up in a hug, a kiss, a smile, a lie

Then we’ll dance
You’ll make me laugh
I’ll make you smile
You’ll catch my eye
I’ll catch you heart
You’ll hold my hands
I’ll kiss your lips
Then we’ll swear never to tell

We will wake up in the morning
With our identities in our hands
A tingle in our skin
And an image of last night we can’t seem to shake

Maybe one day we will call them our past
A mistake
Or just another crazy night
Because we are young and we can

But for now lets take a walk outside
And put our love in a jar
On the windowsill at night
And call them memories
