Here in the dark, I wonâ€™t even make a spark.
Youâ€™re the only one whoâ€™s never seen
The way I can light up in shades of gold and green.
Iâ€™m just a little firefly, I want to shine for you but Iâ€™m 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, Iâ€™d open up for anyone.
Youâ€™re the only one who closes me
Because I want to be the brightest thing youâ€™ve ever seen.
Iâ€™m just a little dandelion, I want to blossom but Iâ€™m 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 canâ€™t look down, Iâ€™m way too high,
And I canâ€™t 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.
Iâ€™m just a little hummingbird, I want to sing but I canâ€™t find the words,
So when you come around I just go still
But after you move on, when I know youâ€™re gone,
Then I sing for you the way I always will.
