for all the fireflies...

lyrics

dear little fire fly/
can i capture you/
come take a seat in my mason jar/
i wanna rap to you/
tonight i am your raging god/
in the backyard of a borough/
where cricket spirits charm the dark/
im mulling over the myth of man/
in the middle of mind/
human sirens made of longing light/
we toss our grins toward the corners of our eyes/
gathered in a kiss/
a morsel of fire

Chorus:
I want you/
so be brave/
the heart is wild/
let's not behave
x2

burning in shelters made of skin/
your moan is a memorized poem
flowing from the heart/
a river of blue violet flame/
im dribbling love/
im trembling drunk

Chorus:
I want you/
so be brave/
the heart is wild/
let's not behave
x2

welcome to our past lives never realized
x2

Chorus:
I want you/
so be brave/
the heart is wild/
let's not behave
x2

dear little fire fly/
can i capture you/
come take a seat in my mason jar/
i wanna rap to you/
