Lyrics

Fireflies

They'd danced to Cheatin' Heart a thousand times
But never twice the same
She held him closer every night
Since that first day on the train
He may never dance again
Now they've laid her in the grave
If we'd be half as lucky as they had been
I think we'd have it made

We'd waltz through the wintertime
Two-step into spring
Slow dance with fireflies on summer nights
and fall in love over again

I was leaning on the cocktail bar
Without a song to sing
The night you took hand you had my heart
And I knew I'd buy a ring
Now I can't remember anyone
I held 'fore holding you
I'll be your loving man with each rising sun
You're the reasson I wear dancing shoes

We'll waltz through the wintertime
Two-step into spring
Slow dance with fireflies on summer nights
and fall in love over again

We'll show young lovers how life's dance is done
When we're both old and grey
I'll swear out load, girl, you're the only one
When there's nothing left to say
Hell, there's nothing left to say

We'll waltz through the wintertime
Two-step into spring
Slow dance with fireflies on summer nights
and fall in love over and over again
