I’m in no rush to write my masterpiece,
Taking my time with empty hands,
And all of these words,
That never seem to meet,
Fly away to be caught again,

Oh my firefly,
I feel your life,
Shine slowly,
The world could be burning,
Shine so slowly,
While I pretend,

Won’t you save me from the light,
Let me stay here,
Where the darkness shines,
We’re the sages of the night,
Oh my firefly,

I drift away into a memory,
Endless fields where we still play,
And all these bright green stars,
Surrounding me,
Keeping my dreams awake.
