Temptations, The - Firefly Lyrics

Firefly, Firefly
Shine your light tonight
Assist the Moon and Stars
In helping us
To ease our troubled minds

Firefly, Firefly
Golden night of serenity, yeah
show us the light naturally.
And maybe she wont worry
when there aint nothing I can do.

When sea runs dry
and the stars fall from the sky
She a vulnerable flower
and she believes in me

Even when I had to lie
I shouldn't have lie
To make the world feel alright
Firefly, Firefly

Um,Um,Um, Sometimes I feel
I have the weight of the world
on my shoulders. But knowing the
strength she sees in me
I smile because she believes me.

Firefly, Firefly
Golden night of serenity
show me the light naturally.
And maybe she wont worry
when aint nothing I can do.

When sea runs dry
and the stars fall from the sky
She a vulnerable flower
and she believes in me

Even when I had to lie
I shouldn't have lie
To make the world feel alright
Firefly, Firefly

Ooh, Ooh, Ooh, Ooh, Firefly
You make the world feel alright

    Norman Whitfield took over as producer/ writer for this group after they left Detroit for Los Angeles  and they got their second chance.

    Midwest Slot Diva

    I was a sophomore also

  71. Robert Holland

    Cats don't sing like this anymore

    Kevin Lewis

    Damn sure dont,Bro!

    Elovin Eloven

    I'm a cat and i can sing like this

  72. Kenneth Craddock

    Temptations are a brilliant brand with great moving parts whether it's the classic Temps, this particular set of personnel or even later, always quality, professionalism, showmanship, and hell they definitely can sing. Being a Temptation is like being a NY Yankee. The Brand is worth gold!!!

    D Me

    Kenneth Craddock ... I've always said the same thing. I starting watching the Yanks and listening to the Tempts in '65. Both have made with smile/cry with emotion. The Tempts though, are memory based. While the Yanks will rise again, that era in music has come and gone. The Tempts are a cover band now.....covering their great collection.

  73. LF Jones

    I still have this album in storage. Loved the whole Album!


    +LF Jones
    Got the album
    Got the cassette (somewhere)

    LF Jones

    LoL, awesome!

    Marvin Walton

    I specifically remember my father playing this album ... on 8-track. #memories


    I love this album, we used to play it sun up to sun down that whole summer '75

    Shawn Hardy

    I just played this album, again. It's still on rotation here and I have my original copy from when it first came out. One of my all-time favorites. The song Memories--can't get through it without sobbing.

  74. Paizley Carwell
