.Firefly.

.Firefly. Diana Cloudburst

I wanted to be a butterfly.

To float on air with vibrant wings,

To float on air with vibrant wings, and associate with pretty things.

But that was not the path I took.

But that was not the path I took. I went a different way.

But that was not the path I took. I went a different way. And if I could go back again...

I'd do it all the same.

Instead,

Instead, I am a firefly.

I'm strange

I'm strange and dark

I'm strange and dark and small.

You do not see me

You do not see me when it's light

You do not see me when it's light --I will not show at all.

But when it's dark

But when it's dark

But when it's dark --and all the pretty colors are no more--

I take my flight

I take my flight and

I take my flight and w

I take my flight and w a

I take my flight and w n a

I take my flight and w n a d

I take my flight and w n a d e

I take my flight and w n a d r e

I take my flight and w n a d r e .

I take my flight and w n a d r e . I spread my wings and soar.

You cannot see me

You cannot see me

You cannot see me --so insignificant am I.

You cannot see me --so insignificant am I. I'm too small to catch your eye.

You cannot see me --so insignificant am I. I'm too small to catch your eye. But when it's dark and chilly,

You cannot see me --so insignificant am I. I'm too small to catch your eye. But when it's dark and chilly, when the sun has said goodbye

You cannot see me --so insignificant am I. I'm too small to catch your eye. But when it's dark and chilly, when the sun has said goodbye.

You cannot see me --so insignificant am I. I'm too small to catch your eye. But when it's dark and chilly, when the sun has said goodbye..

You cannot see me --so insignificant am I. I'm too small to catch your eye. But when it's dark and chilly, when the sun has said goodbye...

For a moment

For a moment you will see me shine.

For a moment you will see me shine. For a second,

For a moment you will see me shine. For a second, I will bring you light.

And I will be the ONLY ONE,

And I will be the only one, with my SMALL,

And I will be the only one, with my small, UNWORTHY

And I will be the only one, with my small, unworthy GLOW

And I will be the only one, with my small, unworthy glow, to stay

And I will be the only one, with my small, unworthy glow, to stay and try to show you

And I will be the only one, with my small, unworthy glow, to stay and try to show you --to STAY

And I will be the only one, with my small, unworthy glow, to stay and try to show you --to stay and help you know

That you alone

That you alone are SPECIAL

That you alone are special, and you'll go

That you alone are special, and you'll go YOUR

That you alone are special, and you'll go your OWN

That you alone are special, and you'll go your own WAY

That you alone are special, and you'll go your own way whether or not you have ME

That you alone are special, and you'll go your own way whether or not you have me...

... or the butterflies by day.
