Firefly Lyrics - Breaking Benjamin

Review The Song (10)



You my friend
You're a lot like them
But I caught your lie
And you know I did
Now I'm lost in you
Like I always do
And I'd die to win
'Cause I'm born to lose

[Chorus:]
Firefly
Could you shine your light
Now I know your ways
'Cause they're just like mine
Now I'm justified
As I fall in line
And it's hard to try
When you're open wide


Take my hand
We'll be off and then
We'll come back again
To a different land
Now I like this way
You could go away
If you guess the name
You could not replace

[Chorus:]
Firefly
Could you shine your light
Now I know your ways
'Cause they're just like mine
Now I'm justified
As I fall in line
And it's hard to try
When you're open wide

Bring me your enemies
Lay them before me and
Walk away
Walk away!
WALK AWAY!!!


[Chorus:]
Firefly
Could you shine your light
Now I know your ways
'Cause they're just like mine
Now I'm justified
As I fall in line
And it's hard to try
When you're open wide

Fuck You Firefly
Have you lost your light?
Now I hate your ways
'Cause they're just like mine
So you lost my friend
Such a sorry end
And I don't know why
So I joke and smile

SMILE!

Nice song | Reviewer: Anonymous | 6/28/11

Nice song, but the thing that attracted me in this song was the lyrics, which is unlike most of ben's songs (mostly the lyrics are ambiguous and you can intrpert them to do with love), but this song is different, it's totally clear the song talks about a machiavellian person who lied or betrayed:
"You my friend You're a lot like them But I caught your lie"- the writer realise that his friend isn't like he used to think of him and that he is just like any other people, namely he lied to him and impersonated to someone he wasn't.
"Firefly Could you shine your light Now I know your ways 'Cause they're just like mine"- the firefly are no more than an image to the person this song was written to, as the fireflies shines and looks like sparks, while they're just bugs the person who this song was written to impersonated to someone he wasn't, the writer also adds that the imposter's way is "just like his" that is so the writer also did a similar thing.
there is also a "before and after" element:
"Could you shine your light"- before the writer realise the imposter's true nature.
"Have you lost your light?"- after he finds out about his lie.

I really love this song. Most people don't like it, b/c it doesnt seem like a breaking benjamin song, but its awesome to me.
I love the anger Ben expresses in this song...Ladybug is alot like this song, but it sounds happier.

My FAVORITE song. I didn't really like it that much whenI first heard it, but now I feel like crying when I listen to it. My sister says the "F*** you" part doesn't match the song, but hearing it over and over again, I don't know how it could be without it. Great lyrics. Great song.
