half our lives lyrics – katie herzig

oh, i want every second of the minutes
in the hours of these days
’cause there’s too many trees to climb
and secret spots to find down by the lake
oh, the fireflies are out and momma’s calling now

we can’t go to sleep ’cause we’ll wake up older
we can’t let these nights steal away half our lives

and we will spend our days finding
helpless compet*tion to defeat
yeah, we’ll chase away the girls
and pretend that we don’t want ’em on our street

yeah, the sun is running too
being chased off by the moon
and we should go to bed
but we’ll catch fireflies instead

and we can’t go to sleep cause we’ll wake up older
we can’t let these nights steal away
and i don’t want these days to ever be over
we can’t let these nights just steal away

oh, just stay awake with me
won’t you stay awake with me?
oh, stay awake with me

we can’t go to sleep ’cause we’ll wake up older
we can’t let these nights, oh steal away
and i don’t want these days to ever be over
we can’t let these nights steal away half our lives
