About

To me Fireflies is the anthem of this record. The song poses intimate questions about how we live our lives in relation to all the tumultuousness around us - and then offers an answer with the drive of the chorus, “we need light // we are fireflies.” The whole EP fluctuates between the personal and collective, between navigating darkness and finding hope and resilience. Fireflies really sets that tone.

Lyrics

Are we broken as we go Cracks in pavement, rusted metal, old souls Our swollen hearts beat slow Dusty corners, locked closets, creased folds Are we singing the same song Tired pages, twisted lyrics, cold prose Joni’s circle turns slow Soon forgotten which direction to go Ooh, we need light Ooh, we are fireflies Ooh, we need light In good time we may see From the mountain, to the river, to the sea Hear the whispers as they speak Of what we need What we need What we need What we need Ooh, we need light Ooh, we are fireflies Ooh, we need light We need light We are fireflies Are we broken as we go Cracks in pavement, rusted metal, old souls
