lyrics

When we were young I placed
A plastic ring upon your finger,
You went back across the street,
Late for supper,
In the evening we sent signals,
Through our windows with our flashlights,
Like fireflies painting in the night.
The next month you moved away,
My tangled-haired friend,
In the backseat, waving as you pulled away,
Your postcard came in the mail yesterday,
A firefly from the past,
But the street is now wider than an ocean,
I’ve seen it all go by on
This dirty wallpaper.
So you’ve got your life together,
Survived the stormy weather,
Got a husband and two children of your own,
But I can see beyond your writing,
See you crying in the corner,
Of the bathroom, while your family is asleep,
But I’m sending you to sleep,
And when you dream you’ll see a sky of
a million fireflies.
Your postcard came in the mail yesterday,
A firefly from the past,
But the street is now wider than an ocean,
I’ve seen it all go by on
This dirty wallpaper.

What if they're just constructs?
If it comes
From within?
Our thoughts may seem like rocks
But a river runs everything thin
