Lyrics

I’ve got honey on my mind and a knife upon my tongue
And a sweetness in my soul too big to speak it.
I’ve a woman on my face, and a heart that is too young
And just careful enough not to let you see it.

Ain’t no stars in city lights. Ain’t no daytime fireflies. I am who I am tonight.
Waiting just behind my pride. Til you tell me not to hide.

I’ve got roses in my blood and a thorn upon my hands
So I keep em pocketed for your protection.
Cuz I’ve got a will of stone and a courage made of glass,
But if I used it, it would be on your affections.

Ain’t no stars in city lights. Ain’t no daytime fireflies. I am who I am tonight.
Keeping watch, like I know how. Til it’s safer to come out.

I’ve got summer in my bones and winter in my eyes
And a trusty cloud that never lets the light through.
But if I ever let it show, maybe you would realize
That I want you so much I try not to like you.

Ain’t no stars in city lights. Ain’t no daytime fireflies. I am who I am tonight.
Holding back each time your’re here. Til the coast is finally clear.

Ain’t no stars in city lights. Ain’t no daytime fireflies.
