Here in the dark, I wonít even make a spark.
Youíre the only one whoís never seen
The way I can light up in shades of gold and green.
Iím just a little firefly, I want to shine for you but Iím too shy,
So when you come around I hide my light.
But when you go away I shine for you all night.
Out there in the sun, Iíd open up for anyone.
Youíre the only one who closes me
Because I want to be the brightest thing youíve ever seen.
Iím just a little dandelion, I want to blossom but Iím scared of trying,
So I hide my head when you come into the room.
But when you go away I come right into bloom.
And I canít look down, Iím way too high,
And I canít look up, into your eyes.
Well I never was afraid to sing out loud, in front of anybody, any crowd.
You, you make me lose my nerve
Feel like something more than I could ever deserve.
Iím just a little hummingbird, I want to sing but I canít find the words,
So when you come around I just go still
But after you move on, when I know youíre gone,
Then I sing for you the way I always will.
