When the s[C]treetlights come on and the f[Em]ireflies flicker,
I am [C]walking her home making p[Em]lans.
With her [C]shoes in her hands, I am [Em]watching her dance,
As the [C]hem of her dress gentl[Em]y kisses the grass.
INTRO (X1)


[Dsus] It suddenly [Am]rains on[Fadd9] us,
D Dsus Fadd9~
She is laughing and turns up her hands.


CHORUS 1
Like autumn turns [C]leaves, winter will [G]breathe, cold on our [Am]necks, snow in
our[Fadd9] paths.
Wherever she [C]goes, all that I [G]know about us is that bea[Am]utiful things never
Fadd9~
last, that's why fireflies flash.

INTRO (x2)


VERSE 2
When this [C]summertime ends, we will [Em]not part as friends,
Things were [C]promised in blood; we have [Em]sinned.
Now there's [C]tears in her eyes as she's [Em]screaming goodbyes,
I run '[C]long side the car turnin[Em]g numb to the sound.

INTRO (X1)

[Dsus]I notice a [Am]chill in the [Fadd9]air,
D Dsus Fadd9~
September is creeping up fast.

CHORUS 2
Like autumn turns [C]leaves, winter will [G]breathe, cold on our [Am]necks, snow in
our[Fadd9] paths
Wherever she [C]goes, all that I [G]know about us is that[Am] beautiful things never
Fadd9~
last, that's why fireflies flash.

INTRO X1


BRIDGE
[Dsus] Innocence didn't mea[Fadd9]n we're immune to these things,
[Am]Let's blame the passage o[G]f time.
[Dsus]Love and loss, truth it cost[Fadd9]s more than I can spare right now.
[Am]Maybe it's simpler to[G] lie...

FINAL CHORUS

Like autumn turns [C]leaves, winter will [G]breathe, cold on her [Am]necks, snow in
[Fadd9]our paths.
Wherever she [C]goes, all that I[G] know about us is that [Am]beautiful things never
Fadd9~
last, that's why fireflies flash.

INTRO (keep playing to fade out)
Ooooh.... That's why fireflies flash...
Ooooh....

END

all in all it's really simple and like someone told me before, a "heart melter".
tell me what you think, any criticism is welcome.
