Dreams and Fireflies

The blackest nights bring fireflies to dance the dark away.
Oh precious Father, I am scared, will they too be erased?
Why were they summoned, and what for, or were they left untamed?
Oh firefly, may I ask why, you dance in the darkest nights?
Do you come to make me dream?
For so beautiful you are to me.
Even in the darkest nights, when I see you I feel alive.
In the midst of every pressure, and in the middle of every fight,
I would come to watch you dance, so gracefully, away the night.
Firefly, don't fly away, you bring peace in every storm.
Even in the coldest nights, you bring to me the greatest warmth.
Through you I find, in night, my rest, and find my greatest dreams.
Firefly, don't fly away, but fly closer to me.
I wish I knew from where you came, for I would go there too.
Maybe I could leave this place and fly away with you.
No longer would I feel pain or sorrow, or have to hope for a better tomorrow,
Firefly, we'll create new light, when our dreams and paths collide.
Now that we're together, we can use our light to create
a new form of beauty that no one else could recreate
Firefly, you take the nights and make me feel like I'm awake,
And even though your in my dreams, I know that you could not be fake.
And if you truly aren't real, then poison me so I never wake.
Firefly, your the reason why I feel alive in the darkest nights.
