lyrics

You’re just an oriole singing songs
To the sailors that have lost their lives at sea
And I’m just a woman sippin’ whiskey
And stumbling off her widow’s peak
The fog rolls in and drowns the town
And the light house sings its summer song
The breeze from the sea
Twirls its way trough the chimes and the willow trees
And you said to me
Dear Dawnlight, of my springtime
Will you forever be mine
Sing me sweet lullabies
You gathered over wintertime
When your heart was exposed to sweet delight
And when the sun kisses the earth goodnight
and we lose the sight of our fireflies
When the stars go back into their outer sky
Will you forever be mine

We rode our bikes for miles on end
Just to dip our feet where the river bends
You promised me you’d love me
Until the morning dove refused to sing
You carried me up to the mountain top
Just to scream our lungs across the town
And you painted me in colors
As vibrant as the changing leaves
And you said to me
Dear Dawnlight, of my springtime
Will you forever be mine
Sing me sweet lullabies
You gathered over wintertime
When your heart was exposed to sweet delight

But when the sun kissed the earth goodnight
and we lost sight of our fireflies
And when the stars went back into their outer sky
I knew you’d never be mine
