fireflies (lyrics)

Oh, when it was you and me

Swaying in rhythm with the willow trees

Your touch soft ; soothes like a summer breeze

But now I feel I've lost your love

These letters aren't good enough

Oh I would run to you if I could

' Cause I miss those days when I would

Get caught up in your bright eyes

Shine like lightning bugs that fill the sky

Let me be yours and you be mine

Like fireflies that fill the skies

Oh baby eyes please don't go

For who will help the fireflies glow



But now the candles burning low

It's getting harder to let you go

I need you here I need you now

Oh someway oh, some how

I need your touch your gentle kiss

It's the little things I've come to miss

I miss my fingers in your hair

When you would give me that baby stare

And how those curls fell in your face

Waking up to you day after day

Stay in bed and lose track of time

Let me be yours and you be mine

Like fireflies that fill the skies

Oh baby eyes please don't go

For who will help the fireflies glow



Let me be yours and you be mine

Like fireflies that fill the skies

Oh baby eyes please don't go

For who will help the fireflies glow

Thank you all so much for the feedback. I've recieved recognition on the site, and these lyrics have been voted number one. This song was written for someone very special in my life. Although, they are not in my life any  longer, these words have not loss their value, and never will. In fact they have gained value, and relate to my current situation. I hope you all keep reading, and  I would love to read some of your own works. XO
