about

A song about the search for the powerful force we know as love.

lyrics

She was only seventeen
Swept away by his mystique
Dove in the water far too deep
Lost her heart to a faithful leap
I’m sure you felt the weight
When you saw her standing with him
At the wedding in May
Her strength fell down with the
Thunder and the rain

Candlelight shaping the shadows in the night
It’s dark but sister, the fireflies will guide
Their lights create the words we see with our own eyes
“You’ll still find love”

And Grandpa said his prayers
Every night, you’d hear him kneeling there
As the floorboards sighed their creaks
You’d hear him softly speak
And you saw him cry
For the very first time in your entire life
She was his sunset, she was his wife
And he prayed, “Take me away
And thank you, Lord, for this day”

Candlelight shaping the shadows in the night
It’s dark but sister, the fireflies will guide
Their lights create the words we see with our own eyes
“You’ll still find love”

And their forever began
Hugs and kisses from Mom
She walked her to the van
I knew he’d treat her so well when she told me
For the first time, she loved herself
He said, “in sickness and in health”
And we burned sparklers that night
But even so, it was their love that was causing the light
Their hearts beat, I give you all, all of me
And there is nowhere else I’d rather be

Candlelight shaping the shadows in the night
It’s dark but sister, the fireflies will guide
Their lights create the words we see with our own eyes
“You’ll still find love”
