Lyrics

We’d stay out after dark, catching fireflies in a jar
The moon shone on our faces, as we stared up at the stars
We’d ride that rusty swingset, sail high into the air
bet who could swing the highest, warm breezes through our hair

How I miss that young sweet innocent when all we had was time
Life was oh so simple and you were only mine
Though it seems so long ago the past is never far
Those moments still shine brightly life fireflies in a jar

You and I got older we’d drive down to the park
Sit side by side in the summer grass and you’d kiss me in the dark
We’d stay and talk for hours about who we want to be
Your dreams were bigger than this town you needed to be free

How I miss that young sweet innocent when all we had was time
Life was oh so simple and you were only mine
Though it seems so long ago the past is never far
Those moments still shine brightly life fireflies in a jar

I still remember that last kiss before you went away
I settled down had children a happy life I’ve made

But every now and then I’ll sit in the summer grass
And my mind begins to wonder about the boys that haunts my past
I wonder if he’s happy, I wonder if he’s free
I wonder if he stares up at the stars, and ever thinks of me

How I miss that young sweet innocent when all we had was time
Life was oh so simple and you were only mine
Though it seems so long ago the past is never far
Those moments still shine brightly life fireflies in a jar
