This firefly has lost its wonder
Please don't forget me when I'm gone
If she could just erase your fingers
If we could feel nothing at all

I forced myself to blow out the candle in the window
This blackened void stretches forever

Spending nights prostrate on the floor
We're too young to be this old
Illumination is dead in its jar
These nights I wander alone

Move past the fear of leaving
A cry distills the light
Angry words are pouring from your eyes
If we could need nothing at all

I forced myself to blow out the candle in the window.
These shadows cannot last forever.

Some days it's hard to believe
We're too young to be this old
They never warned me that I would have to face
All this emptiness alone
