"Dragonfly" as written by and Ziggy Marley....
Jump in, it's only fire.
The pilot's set to broil, my nimble cook.
It's useless, flying kites
It only works if the wind is right.
And I've got a question for my dragonfly:
How to navigate through a perilous tide
Without a safe or sound device
Save only I,
Save only I?

So sayeth the law of shadow
No night is so long to stop day from following.
So long as I reach the air and finally feel my colours change.

Jump in!
Wisdom's with the pearls.
The little shiny eyes the oysters took.
Deception
Dragonfly
The underage plan to drink the night.
It's not so wonderful feeling like something just in the way.
Call up the 30 winds till your persian rug flies
Without a sage for sound advice.
Who's there
Save only I,
Save only I?

So sayeth the law of shadow
No night is so long to stop day from following.
So long as I reach the air and finally feel my colours change.

Oh, I'm willing, my dragonfly
No need to slice the dark, it's just as good, I've found
So jump in while the flame is bright
And if you jump when the wind is right
Think of this not as fire but lights of coming dawn
Coming dawn
Coming dawn
Fall up into the wind if she offers a ride
With no one else to turn the tide
Save only I
Save only I!

So sayeth the law of shadow
No night is so long to stop day from following.
So long as I reach the air and finally feel my colours change!

    Song FactZiggy Marleys "Dragonfly" lyrics are completely different and has nothing in common with this song. As far as I know the song is written and composed by Melissa Kaplan itself.
