Peter Brown — Fireflies lyrics

There’s a boy running fast through the tall moonlit grass
Wide eyed with fear and with wonder
In the branches of oak and the shadows of pine
He sees phantoms way up high and down under

He follows in the night
The sparkles in the breeze
Dancing underneath the sky
Even though he’s scared of the darkness everywhere
He’s chasing after fireflies
Yes, even though he’s scared of the darkness everywhere
He’s chasing after fireflies

Now watching and shaking the flash in his jar
He marvels as he sets it free
Cus’ he catch just a moment of magic in light
Is worth of all the danger there might be

He follows in the night
The sparkles in the breeze
Dancing underneath the sky
Even though he’s scared of the darkness everywhere
He’s chasing after fireflies
Yes, even though he’s scared of the darkness everywhere
He’s chasing after fireflies

One spark in a deep dark night can bring this boy such sweet delight

The dream now forgotten
The strange lovely tune
The word on the tip of the tongue
From out of the blackness and out of the blue
Is here for an instant in dawn

He follows in the night
The sparkles in the breeze
Dancing underneath the sky
For in every heart is a child with a jar
Chasing after fireflies
Still chasing after fireflies
