Fireflies

about

I wanted to write a song that captured a feeling I had when I was 14, in love for the first time.

At night I would look at the stars from my bed, thinking about the girl I liked. I would often leave through my window in the middle of the night and go for walks, having conversations with the stars, and feeling that the whole universe conspired with me.

I would picture the girl I liked sleeping, and I felt connected to her. And I hoped that while I was walking outside in the middle of the night I would also be visiting her dreams, somehow.

lyrics

Sometimes it’s late at night
I’m lost in all my thoughts
I take a look outside
And see a million stars

I feel alive

And then I cross my window
Straight into the night
Stepping carefully
On a street that has no name

I feel alive

And I’m surrounded by the fireflies
Dancing stars down from the sky
They light my way as I cross the night
I’m not alone

I feel the cobblestones
Cold against my feet
And take a walk
While the world is still asleep

I feel the love

I make my way
To the street where you live
You’re in your dreams
On a land of peace

I feel the love

And then I think of all the things that I
I want to tell you but I’m too scared
And if I only had the courage
I would say to you:

Hear the song
The universe is playing just for us tonight
Dance with me
Darling, our love can set us free

Hold me through the night
We’re not alone
Can you feel the love?
It’s right here with us

And as the morning sun
Starts to show its light
I head back home
And I leave you in your dreams

I feel the light

And I’m surrounded by the fireflies
Dancing stars down from the sky
They light my way as I cross the night
I’m not alone

I hear the song
The universe is playing just for us tonight
Dance with me
Darling, our love will set us free

Hold me through the night
We’re not alone
Can you feel the love?
It’s right here with us
