Orange moon lies low
Up against a western sky
Soon we’ll see all our troubles disappear
Underneath it’s watchful eye
Meet me darkwiler. Tonight.
We’ll watch the waves roll in and the planes roll on by

We’ll build a bonfire and laugh at all life’s crazy twists and turns.
Bonfire; and as the flames flicker burn out bright
We’re fireflies tonight.

Someone bring an old guitar. I’ve got some friend who likes to play
And I’m gunna wear a fuzzy cap that says ‘L.A.’
We glow in flashes all the day around
But you should see us when the sun goes down

We build a bonfire and laugh at all life’s crazy twists and turns.
Bonfire; and as the flames flicker burn out bright
We’re fireflies tonight. Yeah hey-yeah..

Meet me darkwiler tonight
We’ll watch the waves roll in and the planes -
They go so low on their way to the sky

Bonfire, yeah laugh at all life’s crazy twists and turns.
Bonfire; and as the flames flicker burn out bright
We’re fireflies… tonight. Yeah hey-yeah..

    General CommentI love this song, it always makes me think of summer nights on the beach with friends.

    One minor correction:

    I think "meet me darkwiler. tonight." should be "meet me at Dockweiler tonight"

    Dockweiler Beach State Park‎ is a beach in LA, right next to the airport, which would tie in with the lyrics about watching planes.
