      What a wonderful song! Perfect for KTCC. In case anyone is interested, I found the lyrics:

      FIREFLIES
      by Lori McKenna

      Before you met me I was a fairy princess
      I caught frogs and called them prince
      and made myself a queen.
      Before you knew me I traveled around the world
      I slept in castles and fell in love
      because I was taught to dream.
      I found mayonnaise bottles
      and poked holes on top to capture Tinkerbell
      And they were just fireflies to the untrained eye
      but I could always tell.

      I believe in fairytales and dreamers’ dreams
      like bed-sheet-sails
      And I believe in Peter Pan
      And miracles and anything I can to get by…..
      and fireflies.

      Before I grew up I saw you on a cloud.
      I could bless myself in your name
      and pat you on your wings.
      Before I grew up I heard you whisper so loud
      “Life is hard, and so is love, child,
      Believe in all these things.”
      I found mayonnaise bottles
      and poked holes on top to capture Tinkerbell.
      And they were just fireflies to the untrained eye
      but I could always tell.

      I believe in fairytales and dreamers’ dreams
      like bed-sheet-sails
      And I believe in Peter Pan
      And miracles and anything I can to get by…..
      and fireflies.

      Before you met me I was a fairy princess
      I caught frogs and called them prince
      and made myself a queen.
      Before you knew me I traveled around the world
      I slept in castles and fell in love
      because I was taught to dream…..

        im6,
        If I could write a song, it would be much like this one. I still always clap for Tinkerbell.

        Thanks for posting the lyrics.
