You don't want to be hurtin' the way I'm hurtin'.
Pull these daggers from this heart of mine.
The day's long past since my show's final curtain.
To scrounge a short piece of somethin'
I have to wait in line

I drink to soothe my pain away
A Maker's Mark to end my day
Again, I dream a dream of you
so very far away

What are you dreaming of?
Or do you lie awake at night?
Firefly, you do the town.
and all the crowds you gather round.
With the spotlight on you so blinding.
Is it peace in your masterpiece you're finding?
If the heavens, again, should part the sea.
and you're heart light shined on me
Would you share a cup of coffee
take a second glance at me?
Cut a better deal between us
than two for you
and one for me?
Would you turn your light down low
or burn white hot to dim my glow?
Would you linger a while longer
before flying off to your next show?
This is inside information,
I would surely like to know.
Firefly what happens now?
Will you burst with pride, be bold
When all the glitter isn't gold?
Does it matter anyhow?
Sing it loud, do us proud.
Key of G, 6/8 time.
Firefly, drop some rhyme
oh how you
shine
shine
shine..
