Song Description

This is a story about friendship between a man and a woman. Sometimes, one night spoils everything, when everything was perfect the way it was.

(V1)
There's a reason
For the things I said
I can't take them back now
Even if I wanted to, somehow
A million fireflies, they can't find you

(V2)
I could spend the next
Twenty years or so
Making up stories
And having a go
And baby, I could say I'm sorry
But there's no glory in my worry

All I can do is try to explain
And hope you'll come home again

(Chorus)
A million fireflies can't find you
So what am I suppose to do now
A million fireflies can't light the way
Our pretend love has gone astray

(V3)
There's a reason
I can't take.. my words back
If I wanted to, it's just that
I can't hide the truth with all my lies
Somehow I'll get by ... I'll get by

Ooooooo
Somehow I'll get by

(Chorus)
A million fireflies can't find you
So what am I suppose to do now
A million fireflies can't light the way
Our pretend love has gone astray

(Bridge)
You're still the best friend I ever had
Why does one night have to change everything
It's just so sad, you'll never Know
Cause I have no way to show you

(Chorus)
A million fireflies can't find you
So what am I suppose to do now
A million fireflies can't light the way
Our pretend love has gone astray

(Outro)
A million fireflies can't find you
Ooooo Ooooo Oooo Oooo
A million fireflies can't find you
What am I suppose to do now
A million fireflies
A million fireflies
A million fireflies
Only ... they know truth
Where are you?

Such a lovely song to listen to, very relaxing.

Nice sounding song well put together.

Great lyrics and instrumentation! Beautiful singing voice!
