-Song For The Fireflies-
-Josh Ritter-
---------------------

Capo 3

G
After all the lights had died
G/F#
Out behind the palisades park
Em
Fireflies remembered to do
C
Exactly what they were supposed to
G
Memories were like coins that tumbled
G/F#
Somersaulting through the deep
Em
Down every well we through them in
C                                     Am
Until they came to the top again and out
         Em
Like the sun
        Am            C
In your hair, in your hair

Every month that ends its spin
Is picked up by the moon for keeping
Clean and safe from accidents
Sheltered from the elements
But June is like an echo
Of the sounds we never made
I swear they find me in my waking hours
Thirty days like poison flowers
The wind in your hair
Like a sigh, like a sigh

With intermittent rain and shine
The sky re-started six or seven times
It's blue because it sees
All our infidelities
We both know that it's been so long
I'm not sure what to say so I hope
Fireflies remember to do
Exactly what it was they used to
