Fireflies (Roper)

Blushing skin is whispering slight of tongue, can kill so softly Velvet lips sing lullabies so satin sleek but still so costly Knees weaken crumble and fall Mere mortals she's had them all This gift of sight this glorious blight [Chorus:] Fireflies close your eyes They flicker dim then die not true stars just fading lies (Fireflies close your eyes Dancing so sweetly by then disappearing with a sigh) Far too easily distracted by this wretched curse I'm enticed and so attracted bait and trap me, perhaps worse Jade brilliance emerald lies Each glimmer must fade and die This gift of sight this glorious blight I don't want these distractions no compromise for fractions Diminish these subtractions false lights are just refractions
