I’m a deaf stethoscope
I’m inspired by insights I can’t translate
And driving toward the beach
So beach you better be breezy

At best I’m inaccessible
I’d rather be the B side on the CD
But I’m trying to find the light
So I might as well ignite this firefly

Firefly – I’m tried of trying
Because I’m wired for dialing
If you smoke a little lightning you’re bound
To start choking and idling

I’m a deaf stethoscope
I’m a heart beater but a greeter on the side
I’ve reported myself missing
On the side of a milk carton kissing a baby

Firefly – Burning all the papers
Extinguishing the embers
Packaging the ashes
And returning to all senders

I’ve never been higher than a church spire
I’ve never been lower than to wish
I’d never known her
