I am waking from a dream
I am choking on a scream
You were trying to show me something
The dark is wide and long
The gates are closed, the crowd's all gone
Your still shimmering and leading me on

Firefly that's what you are
Burning for me in the darkest hour
Light breaks where no sun shines
So shine for me tonight - firefly

I wake to magnolias sweet and fresh
Lines of poetry on my breath
You were here but you have stolen away
My inspiration is an evening star
So come to me wherever you are
I will wait for you tonight alone in the dark

Firefly that's what you are
burning for me in the darkest hour
Light breaks where no sun shines
So come as you are - my evening star
Shine for me tonight - firefly

    General Commentwho sings this song?! everywhere says its tori amos!!! but it isn;t ! she never sang it and never wrote it! its driving me mad, the woman who does sing it has a very distinctive rough sort of voice. I love this song, and thought it would be easy to find out who sings it but i can't find it anywhere. I have the song on my computer after copying an old compilation cd i made about 2-3 years ago - so it didn't have the artists name on it or anything...grrr...its driving me crazy not knowing! so can anyone help me out?
