100,000 Fireflies Lyrics - The Magnetic Fields

Review The Song (4)

I have a mandolin
I play it all night long
It makes me want to kill myself
I also have a dobro
Made in some mountain range
Sounds like a mountain range in love
But when I turn up the tone
On my electric guitar
I'm afraid of the dark without you close to me
I went out to the forest and caught
A hundred thousand fireflies
As they ricochet round the room
They remind me of your starry eyes
Someone else's might not have made me so sad
But this is the worst night I ever had
'cause I'm afraid of the dark without you close to me
You won't be happy with me,
But give me one more chance
You won't be happy anyway
Why do we still live here
In this repulsive town?
All our friends are in New York
Why do we keep shrieking,
when we mean soft things?
We should be whispering all the time...

To the guy who dissed this song. | Reviewer: Anonymous | 9/12/10

You know what, this song is so ingenious! I'm really sorry that you tiny brain won't let you understand the romantic level of this song. I understand that you don't like the song but no one needs to here your crap. This was one of the greatest bands. It started a revolution of music. This is music that required talent. The man in this band wrote all of the songs by himself and maybe his voice wasn't the best but he was genius. So please just let others enjoy the song without you whining.

One of my favourite songs (along with 'Strange Powers' and 'If You Don't Cry') by my favourite band. The 'as they ricochet round the room' bit is perhaps the most sublime moment in pop music history :)

this just plainly sucks and pure heart is out of his mind | Reviewer: Anonymous | 2/10/09

this is the worst song i have ever seen in my life. the only reason i even looked this crap up is because i am doing a essay on daniel handler which used to be in this horrible band i hope this band doesnt exist anymore because if it does then it really needs to die

pure heart | Reviewer: mindy | 6/7/07

all the songs of stephen/magnetic fields is pure love. its just as beautiful as it gets in this world, when you compound stephens soul, the lyrics, the music with your own life. pure happiness! much better than art. its not art, its life. its so deep and pure. looove
