fireflies lyrics – faith hill

before you met me i was a fairy princess
i caught frogs and called them prince
and made myself a queen
before you knew me i traveled ’round the world
i slept in castles and fell in love
because i was taught to dream
i found mayonnaise bottles and poked holes on top
to capture tinkerbell
they were just fireflies to the untrained eye
but i could always tell

[chorus]
i believe in fairytales and dreamers dreams like bed sheet sails
and i believe in peter pan and miracles
and anything i can to get by
and fireflies

before i grew up i saw you on a cloud
i could bless myself in your name and pat you on your wings
before i grew up i heard you whisper so loud
“life is hard, and so is love, child, believe in all these things”
i found mayonnaise bottles and poked holes on top
to capture tinkerbell
and they were just fireflies to the untrained eye
but i could always tell

[chorus]

before you met me i was a fairy princess
i caught frogs and called them prince
and made myself a queen
before you knew me i traveled ’round the world
and i slept in castles and fell in love
because i was taught to dream
