Fireflies

Sunshine and Summertime

We've got barefoot ladies and tricked out Mercedes
And people getting crazy on the boulevard
We've got classic colas and ice-cold Corona's
And big pool parties in the back yard

I said hey that's the way we do it
New friends and blue skies that never end
Hey that's the way we like it
Good times, sunshine and summertime

You'll see straw sombreros and t-top Cameros
And stereos blasting in the parking lot
You'll see rock hard bodies and bikini hotties
And everybody's got it going on
They’re showing what they've got

Hey that's the way we do it
New friends and blue skies that never end
Hey that's the way we like it
Good times, sunshine and summertime

I said hey everybody can't you feel the rhythm now
Hey everybody don't you want to party
Hey everybody can't you feel the rhythm now
Hey everybody don't you wanna party

Hey that's the way we do it
New friends and blue skies that never end
Hey that's the way we like it
Good times, sunshine and summertime

Hey that's the way we do it
New friends and blue skies that never end
Hey that's the way we like it
Good times, sunshine and summertime
Good times, sunshine and summertime
Good times, sunshine and summertime

I Want You

The eagle wants a canyon
And a place where he can rest his wings a while
The drifter wants a freight train
That will carry him another hundred miles
The lion's only looking for something he can sink his teeth into
Oh and I want you

The devil wants a fella
With a weakness he can wrap his arms around
The champion wants a challenger
Who just might have the strength to take him down
The river wants an ocean to run towards
And pour its heart into
Oh and I want you
Oh and I want you

Oh, every time that I'm around you
Oh, I'm on fire when we touch
Oh, when I hold you boy you know
I can't get close enough
Yes I want you ooh ooh

I could cry and say I need you
And tell you that I die when you're not here
I could lie and say I love you
And pour a little poison in your ear
But all I'm gonna give you is
Nothing but the bare and naked truth oh
Baby I want you
Baby I want you ooh

Mississippi Girl

Yeah well it's a long way from Star, Mississippi
To the big stage I'm singing on tonight
And sometimes the butterflies still get me
When I'm in the spotlight

And some people seem to think that I've changed
That I'm different than I was back then
But in my soul I know that I'm the same way
That I really always been

Cause a Mississippi girl don't change her ways
Just cause everybody knows her name
Ain't big-headed from a little bit of fame
I still like wearing my old ball cap
Riding my kids around piggy-back
They might know me all around the world
But y'all I'm still a Mississippi girl whooh

Well I spent a few weeks in California
They put my face on the big movie screen
But that don't mean I've forgotten where I came from
That's just me chasing dreams, yeah

Cause a Mississippi girl don't change her ways
Just cause everybody knows her name
Ain't big headed from a little bit of fame
I still like wearing my old ball cap
Ride my kids around piggy-back
They might know me all around the world
But y'all I'm still a Mississippi girl whooh

Cause a Mississippi girl don't change her ways
Just cause everybody knows her name
Ain't big headed from a little bit of fame
I still like wearing my old ball cap
Ride my kids around piggy-back
They might know me all around the world
That’s alright
Cause y'all I'm still a Mississippi girl
Mississippi girl oh
Mississippi girl
Mississippi girl
Yeah yeah
Ooh oh
Mississippi girl

The Lucky One

So hot outside all I can wear
Is these cut off overalls
And sandals on my feet
But I emptied my pockets for a bus ticket
So I could sit there on a broken seat
I got no place I should go
I got no worries you know
Second or Seventh Street
It doesn't matter to me

Cause you're mine
That's all I need to know
The sunshine's everywhere we go
It's so right cause I've got you to hold
Every night yeah
I'm the lucky one
I'm the lucky one

Well I pulled back down to my upstreet apartment
The air never works in that old place
Twenty-seven and I thought I'd be further along
Than just this rented space
I got no papers to read
I got no cable TV no
And I got no places to be
I got no people to meet

Cause you're mine
That's all I need to know
The sunshine's everywhere we go
It's so right cause I've got you to hold
Every night yeah
I'm the lucky one
I'm the lucky one
Yeah I’m the lucky one

I'm on a roll
When I'm with you
Don't stop me now
I just can't lose

Cause you're mine
That's all I need to know
The sunshine's everywhere we go
It's so right cause I've got you to hold
Every night
Cause you're mine
That's all I need to know
The sunshine's everywhere we go
It's so right cause I've got you to hold
Every night yeah
I'm the lucky one
I'm the lucky one
Yeah I’m the lucky one
I’m the lucky one

Dearly Beloved

Alright, here we go
Good morning, dearly beloved
We are gathered here today
To watch two people we know make a big mistake
They'll stand up at the alter
And solemnly swear I do
They'll be together forever
Till they find somebody new

Her daddy's in the front row
Muttering oh no here we go again
They had a couple dates
Now she's three months late
And it's twenty buck a plate I spent, oh

Good morning, dearly beloved
I'd like to welcome ya'll
To see the side-effects of sex and alcohol
Please bow your heads and join me
In a prayer for these two
Who'll be together forever
Till they find somebody new
Alright

The bride is a flirt and the groom is worse
As he's putting the ring on her
He's checking out the bridesmaids
Thinking that he might take
The maid of honor's honor, oh

Welcome, dearly beloved
We are here this afternoon
To throw rice as these two
Drive down the road to ruin
With cans tied to the bumper
And a dragging muffler too
They'll be together forever
Till they find somebody new
So raise your glass and join me
Here's to the bride and groom
They'll be together forever
Till they find somebody new
Y’all come back you hear now?
Thanks dad

If You Ask

Well I've come to know the look on your face
When you're lying about where you've been
Or how much you spent

I know when you will raise your fingers
To your mouth as if to wipe away the shame
It's not a game I know you feel bad

If you ask for my forgiveness
If you call my name I will come
If you ask for my love I will give you some

Someday I know you will understand
Someday you'll finally realize
What you're doing to yourself

If you ask for my forgiveness
If you call my name I will come
If you ask for my love I will give you some

We've been dancing to
That same old song over and over again
I want to be your lover
I don't want to be your policeman

So tonight when you finally make
Your way back to our door
I'll let you sleep it off like I did the night before

When you ask for my forgiveness
When you call my name I will come
When you ask for my love I will give you some

In the morning I will get you up
And I will smile just when you want me to
Cause I'm, I'm all you have

I Ain't Gonna Take It Anymore

You've worn the soles off both your shoes
Walking on me like you do
This ain't what forever's for
And I ain't gonna take it
I ain't gonna take it anymore

I've cried and begged and cursed and prayed
But nothing's worked and nothing's changed
No way I win when you keep score
And I ain't gonna take it
I ain't gonna take it anymore

I'm gonna crawl out from this stone that I've been under
To see the light and breathe the air
And you'll have a million reasons why I shouldn't leave you
But for the first time in a long time I don't care

I guess on one hand you should laugh
Cause I've said the same things in the past
But this time one hand's on the door
And I ain't gonna take it
I ain't gonna take it, anymore

I'm gonna crawl out from this stone that I've been under
To see the light and breathe the air
And you'll have a million reasons why I shouldn't leave you
But for the first time in a long time I don't care

Now I can't help but think of you
Looking back in my rear view
But I've been down that road before
And I ain't gonna take it
I ain't gonna take it anymore
I ain't gonna take it
I ain't gonna take it anymore

We've Got Nothing But Love to Prove

What if no one would kill for their religion
What if no one ever had to go to war
What if children of the world made world decisions
Paint-by-number hatred wasn't hanging around anymore

Is everything a-ok in the USA
In the good ole USA
Is everything a-ok in the USA
In the good ole USA

It's like everything and nothing leads to wisdom
It's like no one really means what they say
While we fight for peace and die for our freedom
I guess we'll leave it to our children to find a better way

Is everything a-ok in the USA
In the good ole USA
Is everything a-ok in the USA
In the good ole USA
Is everything a-ok in the USA
In the good ole USA
Is everything a-ok in the USA
In the good ole USA

I know that I, I'm just a dreamer
A common man, schemer
Looking for light
Out of the dark night of my soul

I hear the drums of war,
They are a changing
And everybody's getting in the groove yeah
We're laughing and dancing and talking
And jamming and singing
Oh, we've got nothing but love to prove,
So how about you

Is everything a-ok in the USA
In the good ole USA
Is everything a-ok in the USA
In the good ole USA
Is everything a-ok in the USA
In the good ole USA
Is everything a-ok in the USA
In the good ole, good ole USA
Alright hey
Is everything, everything, is everything
A-ok
Is everything, everything, is everything
A-ok
C’mon

Stealing Kisses

It's late enough all you kids should be home
The policeman says as he takes your beer for his own
You remember wondering what his wife
Thought about his occupation

He knows that you were just chasing a dream
To the town line and then back and over again
So he winks at you girls
And tells you all "I'll see you later"

I was stealing kisses from a boy
Now I'm begging affection from a man
In my housedress
Don't you know who I am
Don’t you know who I am
Standing in your kitchen

It's late enough your husband's dinner is cold
So you wrap it up and leave it for him on the stove
It's probably the traffic again
Another important meeting
You haven't talked to an adult all day
Except for your neighbor who drives you crazy
When he finally gets in he's sure not in the mood for talking

I was stealing kisses from a boy
Now I'm begging affection from a man
In my housedress
Don't you know who I am
Don’t you know who I am
I’m standing in your kitchen

And hours become days
And days become years
And you could burn down this town
If they made matches from fear
Cause you're no worse off than anybody else
Hey don't you even know, don't you even know yourself

So you're standing outside your high school door
The ones you walked through twenty years before
And you whisper to all of the girls, run, run,
Ooh run

I was stealing kisses from a boy
Now I'm begging affection from a man
In my housedress don't you know who I am
Don’t you know who I am
Take a look at who I am,
Take a look at who I am
I'm stealing kisses
Stealing kisses

You Stay With Me

TV flashes down the hall
Painting pictures on the wall
And you're still sleeping on my knees
And in the glow of silver light
I trace the lines above your eyes
Just another wrinkle that you can blame on me

But I can hear the current of the freeway in the distance
If I keep listening
And I wonder if you ever thought of streaming off
Somewhere with it
Am I not what you thought
Will you get tired of what you got

If I can't give you anymore
Than weathered ships and distant shores
Would you still be my compass yeah
Cause you keep loving me the same
I don't know how but you still stay with me, baby
You stay with me, baby

Another day, another week
We'll slip back in old routines
Till nights like these come in between
Simple moments in the dark
Ones that life can't tear apart
They come along oh just when we need

And I still hear the current of the freeway in the distance
But I stop listening
Cause I know you'll stay
Even though the waves are always shifting
We're fighting our way through
I guess I always knew

If I can't give you anymore
Than weathered ships and distant shores
Would you still be my compass yeah
Cause you keep loving me the same
I don't know how but you still stay with me, baby
You stay with me, baby
Cause you keep loving me the same
I don't know how but you still stay with me, baby
You stay with me, baby
Oh you stay with me

TV flashes down the hall
Painting pictures on the wall

Fireflies

Before you met me I was a fairy princess
I caught frogs and called them prince
And made myself a queen
Before you knew me I traveled round the world
I slept in castles and fell in love
Because I was taught to dream
I found mayonnaise bottles and poked holes on top
To capture Tinkerbell
They were just fireflies to the untrained eye
But I could always tell

I believe in fairytales
And dreamers’ dreams like bed sheet sails
And I believe in Peter Pan and miracles
And anything I can to get by
And fireflies

Before I grew up I saw you on a cloud
I could bless myself in your name
And pat you on your wings
Before I grew up I heard you whisper so loud
"Life is hard, and so is love, child,
Believe in all these things"
I found mayonnaise bottles and poked holes on top
To capture Tinkerbell
And they were just fireflies to the untrained eye
But I could always tell

I believe in fairytales
And dreamers’ dreams like bed sheet sails
And I believe in Peter Pan and miracles
And anything I can to get by
And fireflies
Fireflies

Before you met me I was a fairy princess
I caught frogs and called them prince
And made myself a queen
Before you knew me I traveled round the world
And I slept in castles and fell in love
Because I was taught to dream

Wish for You

A setting sun that paints a tie-dyed sky
A feather bed, an ancient lullaby
A kiss good night from one whose love is true
That's the kind of day I wish for you

A field of flowers dancing in the spring
A little creek, a tree, an old rope swing
Cotton candy clouds against the blue
That's the kind of day I wish for you

First love with all its storm
Raging like fire within
Tossing your heart to chance
You swear the dance will never end

But then it does and someone says goodbye
And after all those empty nights you cried
The morning that you wake up good as new
That's the kind of day I wish for you

The faith of knowing deep inside your heart
That heaven holds more than just some stars
Someone's up there watching over you
That's the kind of day I wish for you

Like We Never Loved At All

You never looked so good
As you did last night
Underneath the city lights
There walking with your friend
Laughing at the moon
I swear you looked right through me
But I'm still living with your goodbye
And you're just going on with your life

How can you just walk on by
Without one tear in your eye
Don't you have the slightest feelings left for me
Maybe that's just your way
Of dealing with the pain
Forgetting everything between our rise and fall
Like we never loved at all

You, I hear you're doing fine
Seems like you're doing well
As far as I can tell
Time is leaving us behind
Another week has passed
And still I haven't laughed yet
So tell me what your secret is baby
(I want to know I want to know, I want to know)
To letting go like you did, like you did

How can you just walk on by
Without one tear in your eye
Don't you have the slightest feelings left for me
Maybe that's just your way
Of dealing with the pain
Forgetting everything between our rise and fall
Like we never loved at all

Did you forget the magic oh
Did you forget the passion oh
And did you ever miss me
Ever long to kiss me oh oh baby baby

Maybe that's just your way
Of dealing with the pain
Forgetting everything between our rise and fall
Like we never loved at all

Paris

The train pulled into Paris like a rocket to the moon
The station's like a circus every face is a cartoon
Everybody's stoned on pride and drunk on cheap champagne
Tonight this joie de vivre sure don't live up to its name
And now all that I can say

Is I'd give this world to you
Every rock and every stone
Every masterpiece in Rome
And if you asked me to
I'd steel the Mona Lisa
Tear it up in little pieces
And lay them at your feet
For all the world to see
But tonight I can't give you Paris

Aristocrats are everywhere
And the air's as thick as thieves
She'd like nothing better than to steal the breathe from me
The tower's lights ain't shining as it hangs its head in shame
At the sight of American blood on the streets of Saint Germain
Washing up into the Seine

And I'd give this world to you
Every rock and every stone
Every masterpiece in Rome
And if you asked me to
I'd steel the Mona Lisa
Tear it up in little pieces
And lay them at your feet
For all the world to see
But tonight I can't give you Paris

And I'd give this world to you
I'd steal the crown and kingdom
From the Queen of England
And if you asked me to
I'd take this city in my hands,
Break it down in grains of sand
And lay them at your feet
For all the world to see
But tonight I can't give you Paris
