Sometimes I get a lyric, and the lyric, you know, comes off the page, and goes into my brain and comes out with a melody. Other times, I may create a melody first.

Firefly

Verse 1

Firefly shine bright 

I cannot see without your light

And firefly stay strong

And last me the whole night long

Firefly guide me

Through questions of eternity

Firefly don’t go

There are so many things I wish to know

Chorus 1

‘Cause I may never understand this world

And I may never find the clam's pearl

But with your light I can live on

Without the answer to my song

Verse 2

Firefly shine bright

I cannot see without your light

And firefly stay strong

And last me the whole night long

Mama where do I go

When darkness envelopes my glow?

And Papa what do I become

When I can’t dance or sing or hum? 

Chorus 2 

Instrumental

Chorus 3 

Tell Me

Verse 1

Tell me the story of how you grew

From infant to wise and wrinkled you

Tell me the story of what you saw

When you thought the world was new and raw

Chorus 1

‘Cause I am afraid of the years that lie in front of me

And I am afraid of the pain I will have to endure

And I am afraid that I will not be who I wanna be

But maybe you can guide me through the blur

Verse 2

Tell me the story of who you know

About all your friends and all your foes

Tell me the story of how you loved

How your heart was trampled and beloved

Chorus 2 

Instrumental Verse

Chorus 3

Queen

Verse 1

I was gonna write a song write a song

Oh I was gonna write a song write a song

But the lyrics were coming out all wrong

And the melody was not so strong

Verse 2

I was gonna draw the sun draw the sun

Oh I was gonna draw the sun draw the sun

But the colors started to run

And the painting was never done

Chorus 1

I was trying to be strong

But I could not last very long

I was trying to be brave

But there are people I cannot save

Verse 3

I was gonna fly the skies fly the skies

Oh I was gonna fly the skies fly the skies

But they told me not to try

And they told me not to ask why

Verse 4

I was gonna be the queen be the queen

Oh I was gonna be the queen be the queen

But they told me I was not he

And they told me I was not king

Chorus 2

I was trying to be strong

But I could not last very long

I was trying to be brave

But there are people I cannot save

I will try to be strong

And I will last very long

I will try to be brave

‘Cause there are more people left to save

 

 

 

 

 

 

Don’t Let Me Down

Verse 1

I don’t believe in God so much

I’ve always had my doubts

And I don’t believe in war so much

There's never a just cause

But I do believe in you somehow

So don’t let me down

Chorus 1

Cause I don’t give my love so easily

And I don’t give my trust so freely

Verse 2

I don’t believe in true love

There's more than just one

I don’t believe in destiny

There's more than one way

But I do believe in you somehow

So don’t let me down

Chorus 2 

Verse 3

Scat

I do believe in you

Yes, I do believe in you

Yes, I do believe in you somehow

So, don’t let me down

Fall In Love With You

Verse 1

My kind of love is not normal

I don’t even know what normal means

My kind of love is fun and stupid and cheesy

But only for the serious and brave

Chorus 1

I wanna fall in love with you

Oh boy it’s true

I wanna fall in love with you

And those stupid goddamn shoes

I wanna fall in love with you

And hug you when you’re blue

I wanna fall in love with you

And with your flaws too

Verse 2

My kind of love is special and dangerous

Something vulnerable and immense

My kind of love breaks down walls

That should have been destroyed long ago

Chorus 2

I wanna fall in love with you

Oh boy it’s true

I wanna fall in love with you

And all the stupid things you do

I wanna fall in love with you

When you look like a fool

I wanna fall in love with you

And with your flaws too

Verse 3

My kind of love is clear

It’s all in the eyes

And my kind of love is not something to play with

I will not allow that

Chorus 3

I wanna fall in love with you

Oh boy it’s true

I wanna fall in love with you

And those stupid goddamn shoes

I wanna fall in love with you

And kiss you when you’re blue

I wanna fall in love with you

And with your flaws

I wanna fall in love with you

I said I Oh I

And it won’t be hard to do

I wanna fall in love with you

And maybe you’ll fall in love with me

With me too
