lyrics

This flower will not die even when pretty sky hide they light
Oh the firefly flies so many miles just to find someone as bright
Oh I know oh I know yes I know oh I know I can if I leave
And I’m done looking down oh I’m down looking down oh I’m done looking down on me

You are not a tree you cannot shade my day and I do not need wings to fly away
You keep what you took cuz I do not need those feelings anyway
Oh I know oh I know yes I know oh I know I can if I leave
And I’m done looking down oh I’m down looking down oh I’m done looking down on me

As I get a little older I notice life is a struggle to live not a little but a lot of it
I try to hold on to what I got of it but you make it so hard to stay
I need a little patience from your providence not your broken promises
You make me feel anonymous I wish honesty wasn’t so hard so hard for you to fucking say
Smiles don’t make saints and this style that I make you did not create
Oh I think its just time I know it this time its time to walk away

This flower will not die even when pretty sky hide they light
Oh the firefly flies so many miles just to find someone as bright
Oh I know oh I know yes I know oh I know I can if I leave
And I’m done looking down oh I’m down looking down oh I’m done looking down on me

You are not a tree you cannot shade my day and I do not need wings to fly away
You keep what you took cuz I do not need those feelings anyway
Oh I know oh I know yes I know oh I know I can if I leave
And I’m done looking down oh I’m down looking down oh I’m done looking down on me

I don’t know why we try flip fly like butter fly try to me one thing then be another I
