"Firecracker" as written by and Jack Antonoff....
Firecracker, you waved in the night
And something that I saw was a-flaming
Your body, it was real in the light
On the fourth of July we were screaming

Well, I saw the lonely road
You left and said to me, don't follow
?Cause I'll only bring you sorrow
And on down my lonely road
You left and I just said, no, no, no, no, no
All I said, no, no, no, no, no

Well, I'm back in my old town again
Is there something still alive that I left here
Do you still like the boys on the street?
I will take you uptown just to see you meet them

Well, I saw the lonely road
You left and said to me, don't follow
?Cause I'll only bring you sorrow
And on down my lonely road
You left and I just said, no, no, no, no, no
All I said, no, no, no, no, no

You know I've been reading the Bible for a change
Maybe there's something I had missed there
I said, I've seen or I've seen some eyes in the rain
And they creep at my mind and I saw you whisper

But firecracker, you waved in the night
Something that I saw was a-flaming
Do you feel like we left something here?
Something worth coming back and claiming

Well, I saw the lonely road
You left and said to me, don't follow
?Cause I'll only bring you sorrow
And on down my lonely road
You left and said to me, don't follow
You sleep and dream for tomorrow

And in the deadly night
You left and said to me, don't follow
'Cause I'll only bring you sorrow
And on down my lonely road
You left and I just said, no, no, no, no, no
Well, I said, no, no, no, no, no

    General Commentit's about ending a relationship. the other person is telling him not to wait up because the person will just bring him down. i'm surprised not many people are commenting on these songs. trampoline is a nice album. one day i will know just how great it is once i get past the same four songs i've been listening to on repeat.

    General CommentPersonally, I think it's about someone leaving their boyfriend/girlfriend because they don't feel as if they're good enough for that person. The lyrics are actually sad, although the music is kind of lively.
    I saw these guys in concert, and they were really awesome, I wasn't even at the concert for them, and it was a really nice surprise. I just remember them doing this song, and no one in the audience really knew them, but everyone liked them anyway.
