Oh beware of bleeding lung
And bugs that eat their young
The demons in your head
The wolves under your bead
The bones of dinosaurs
Hidden below the floors
They rattle and they shake
And make the sound that

Wakes me up most every night
Breaks me softly
Fireflies take flight

The sandman you must trust
He sprinkles golden dust
The howling of the owl
Makes me sleepwalk on clouds
A thousand pianos play
I still hear them the next day
A barrel full of snakes
They make the sound that

Wakes me up most every night
Breaks me softly
Fireflies take flight

The thorn that stays so firmly in my side
These fireflies leave me behind

The bones of dinosaurs
Hidden below the floors
They rattle and they shake
And make the sound that

Wakes me up most every night
Breaks me softly
Fireflies
Wakes me up most every night
Breaks me softly
Fireflies take flight
