Firefly Night

FIREFLY NIGHT

Words: Caroline Lavelle, Music: Caroline Lavelle / Clare Kenny

I was drawn to the light just a little curious then I grew to needing it bright I began to speak of us by the time you realise you’re on the losing side it’s too late for regrets too late for regrets I was caught by the light of a firefly night of a firefly night. It was the girl on the cover not the living breathing me and for once I can take no pleasure in my getting it right finally by the time you realise you’re on the losing side it’s too late for regrets too late for regrets I was caught by the light of a firefly night on a firefly night Like a magic trick once explained when you hold the secret in your hand the magic’s tamed There are no lights in my eyes now and I sit for hours in a daze cos I’ve lost the sweetest madness that could baffle and amaze by the time you realise you’re on the losing side it’s too late for regrets too late for regrets I was caught by the light of a firefly night on a firefly night


The music of this was written with a friend of mine, the bass player Clare Kenny. We had a great laugh writing and recording it, and I particularly love Dave’s drums on this; he has wit and energy when he plays.
Another dear friend of mine, the singer Ingrid Schroeder (check out her great album ‘Bee Charmer’) sings some fabulously weird stuff in the middle eight.
