Fireflies twinkling through the trees,
Cool whispers of rain on the breeze
Let these things take me away from this

Low-hanging clouds fill mud-colored skies
Like these tears fogging up my eyes
I promised myself I wouldn't cry

But then I taste your kiss
Forever imprinted upon my lips.
Soft promises murmured in the dark…
I thought this would last forever,
Never knew it would tear us apart.
I still feel your touch even when you're gone;
I feel too much.

Everything around me says I should,
But I don't know how to let you go.

Now I'm lying in the gloom
Steadily filling up my room,
Alone and I need you next to me

No one ever told me it would be so hard,
No one ever said this would break my heart,
But then, no one said it would be easy…

And then I hear your voice,
And I can't bear it but I have no choice.
Soft promises murmured in the dark…
I wish we could be like this forever,
Never want to believe we'll be apart.
I still feel your touch even when you're away;
I feel so much.

Everyone around me says I should,
But I know I just can't let you go.

Fireflies twinkling past my eyes
As I weep beneath stormy skies
I reach out for you, somehow I feel you near

These may be the most painful nights
I will feel in all my life
I wish I could run away from this…
