lyrics

now that I’ve had some time to myself
I can see just what I’ve become
I have done just as you asked me
but I remain beholden to no one

you have been here through the ages
I have watched as you found your way
though it pains me dearly,
that you’ll soon be leaving
I would not beg you to stay

like a firefly in the june sky
all together, we held back the dark night
but when day comes
(there’s just) a warm sun
and where, oh where shall we hide?

I sat and watched the beggar children
and thought how sad it must me,
as if I had been any different
as if they should answer to me

but my days weren’t meant to be so deftly spent
and these walls could not bear my ceiling
but how a master like me
could be brought down to his knees
by the shame that I should be feeling

like a firefly in the june sky
all together, we held back the dark night
but when day comes
(there’s just) a warm sun
and where, oh where shall we hide?
