Firefly

In your heart you’re a singer
But nobody likes the sound of your voice
That b— just opens her mouth and they weep
That faker look like he got soul but he’s a creep
They treat the world like sh—
Lord knows they don’t believe in it
Nobody loves you, not even you

You bought the choir’s lies, yeah
And joined the fireflies

Starving all by yourself, it’s you
Trying to be someone else, it’s you
Showing off your ill health, it’s you
Telling ‘em that it’s wealth, it’s you
Burning to be the prize, it’s you
Swarming around their eyes, it’s you
You’d beat them with your fame, it’s you
And never beat your shame, it’s you
Firefly

In your heart you’re a dancer
But nobody likes the sway of your hips
Ever since the day you turned thirteen
Your body’s been your sinking ship
Your mother says you’re good
She says cream will always rise to the top
But a voice inside you says you will always flop

Starving all by yourself, it’s you
Trying to be someone else, it’s you
Showing off your ill health, it’s you
Telling ‘em that it’s wealth, it’s you
Burning to be the prize, it’s you
Swarming around their eyes, it’s you
You’d beat them with your fame, it’s you
And never beat your shame, it’s you
Firefly

Stop reading those magazines
Before in your heart you’re a fly
Stop reading those magazines

You’d be better off a star in your own sky

So firefly?
What’s in your heart? — it’s you

Starving all by yourself, it’s you
Trying to be someone else, it’s you
Showing off your ill health, it’s you
Telling ‘em that it’s wealth, it’s you
Burning to be the prize, it’s you
Swarming around their eyes, it’s you
You’d beat them with your fame, it’s you
And never beat your shame, it’s you
