You fold little hearts for the dead
make them beat and pump just for you
watch you hold them dear feel the warmth
but you still don’t feel love

sweep away your clouds take your hands
ride away in moons that glow green
that’s your colour of fireflies
lights what you are made of


Don’t you cry I see you
I’ll breathe the fireflies
make them dance just for you
so I can catch your smile

Thousand paper cranes grant a wish’
So I fold them well for you too
If they don’t work well that’s alright
I’ll fly with you in dreams

Show you what is warmth in my land
so you know you’re not winter’s child
neverevermore the echoes
you will not walk alone


This is my secret place
won’t u come stay with me
where we will not be seen
by those who know

In the morning when the lights die
we will take their wings and we will stitch
Stitch the wings together for our size
they’ll watch us fly away

Let them search on but not destroy
they can’t find the lights so they can’t cage
we will go away now and then
leave no shadows behind
