I see a firefly in the sky
A tiny light on a moonlit night
Reveal the secrets you hold so dear
That leave you so broken-hearted

I see a white dove fly for peace
From the open hand of freedom
Fly away, fly away, fly away
Don't get lost in all that they say

Firefly, light my way
I can't see
A soft white glow
Against the night
A gentle breeze, and then . . .
Sweet enchantment

I see an old man bent an worn
Long grey beard and tired eyes
This road is long I heard him say
Long ago, I lost my way

Firefly . . .
