Sometimes I could know
About things, you'll never know
Like where we descend, at the times that we end
Like where we descend

Where you gonna go with a delicate soul
That face could kill and tell me all the things
That I need to know about the ups and downs
I'm taken over

Her eyes light up like fireflies
And I love to see her light
Her eyes light up like fireflies
And I can't wait to see her

So catch me on a good day
Because I might just find a better place to play
Just to bring you back

It's not that I don't care at all
It's just that I can't watch you burn

Her eyes light up like fireflies, and I love to see her light
Her eyes light up like fireflies, and I can't wait to see her
And if you wanted more than you could fit inside your head
I'm heading out I've got some things to learn and you my
friend to comprehend
If you wanted more than you could fit inside your head

    General Commenti love this song so much. it's so sweet. it reminds me of summer. and being young. catching fireflies.

    i think the lyrics are about loving someone but breaking up with them because it isn't working out anymore.

    General CommentThis song is about the singer feeling like he knows that it is best for a girl that he lost to be with him, and not with anyone else. That is why he talks about knowing where we go when we die, trying to comprehend her (like trying to understand why she chose not to be with him), and he says i cant watch her burn, or in other words... i cant watch her make the wrong decision. Im fairly certain that that is right... i would love for someone to actually post an interpretation and not just say how cool Count the stars is and how they are soon coming to my town!!
