Gabby Barrett – The Fireflies Lyrics

Gabby Barrett – The Fireflies Lyrics

Release Date: October 10, 2018

01. Fireflies

(Verse 1)
Rolled a blanket down by the water
It’s just you and me tonight
Our campfire is getting sleepy
The whole world is going quiet
The evening light is fading away
A gentle breeze is blowing past
Making the grass slowly dance
Wish this night wouldn’t go so fast

(Chorus)
Watching fireflies in West Texas
Sittin’ under the Cypress trees
See the moon rise over the river
No place I’d rather be

(Verse 2)
Can’t stop life from racing by
There’s magic in the air tonight
I remember every moment
For the rest of my life

(Chorus)
Watching fireflies in West Texas
Sittin’ under the Cypress trees
See the moon rise over the river
No place I’d rather be

(Bridge)
And I might see a shooting star
But I won’t wish on them anymore
Just you saying that you love me
Is all I can ask for

(Chorus)
Watching fireflies in West Texas
Sittin’ under the Cypress trees
See the moon rise over the river
No place I’d rather be

You and me and the fireflies
Lying under the Cypress trees
See the sunrise over the river
No place I’d rather be

See the sunrise over the river
No place I’d rather be

02. Your Name On It

(Verse 1)
Someone tell me how long this will last
Feeling let down, love is in the past
Empty-handed, I feel empty-souled
All the while you live innocent
You took it all

(Chorus)
Shame on you for ever saying you love me
It’s your fault for making me feel lucky
I believed in what you said and what’s worse all the things I felt
Come on, let me bring you all the way down
I got a pencil in my pocket
I got a song with your name on it

(Verse 2)
For all my efforts, this is what I get
Livin’ alone here, nothing but regret
This ain’t about me, it’s about right from wrong
And how I trusted you with everything I own
Are you listenin’?

(Chorus)
Oh, Shame on you for ever saying you love me
It’s your fault for making me feel lucky
I believed in what you said and what’s worse all the things I felt
Come on, let me bring you all the way down
I got a pencil in my pocket
I got a song with your name on it

(Bridge)
You must be in a knot covering up what you’ve done wrong
Two-timing, maybe three, now your future don’t include me
Take yourself and get on down the road

(Chorus)
Shame on you for ever sayin’ you love me
It’s your fault for making me feel lucky
I believed in what you said and what’s worse all the things I felt
Come on, let me bring you all the way down
I got a pencil in my pocket
(Guess what?!)
You got a song with your name on it, yeah

(Bridge)
You must be in a knot covering up what you’ve done wrong
Two-timing, maybe three, now your future don’t include me
Take yourself and get on down the road

03. Missin Love

(Verse 1)
Wake up every morning with you on my mind
Time doesn’t pass in Dreamland, you’re still by my side
Stirring this black coffee with no sugar and no cream
It’s a bitter truth to face, I’ve lost the best part of me

(Chorus)
I don’t wanna want you, I don’t wanna care for you
I don’t wanna need you, and I don’t wanna hear about you
But the truth is you complete me
I’m no good ‘til you complete me
And I’m missin’ love
And I’m missin’ love

(Verse 2)
I can’t fly without my wings, I can’t get off the ground
Lost without my best friend, wander round and round
I think of you all day and I pray for you at night
If I could have you back, everything would be all right

(Chorus)
I don’t wanna want you, I don’t wanna care for you
And I don’t wanna need you, and I don’t wanna hear about you
But the truth is you complete me
I’m no good ‘til you complete me
And I’m missin’ love
Hmm, and I’m missin’ love

(Pre-Chorus)
Thought I needed room to grow
Now that I’ve got it, I don’t know
I don’t wanna want you, I don’t wanna care for you
And I don’t wanna need you, I don’t wanna hear about you

(Chorus)
I don’t wanna want you, I don’t wanna care for you
And I don’t wanna need you, I don’t wanna hear about you
But the truth is you complete me
No good ‘til you complete me
And I’m missin’ love
Ooh, and I’m missin’ love
I’m missin’ love
