Me and Charlie boy used to go walking,
Sittin' in the woods behind my house When being lovers meant a stolen kiss
And holding hands with nobody else around Charlie said he wanted to get married But we were only ten so we'd have to wait
He said we'd never let our love run dry like so many do these days

So we treat our love like a firefly,
Like it only gets to shine for a little while Catch it in a mason jar and with holes in the top
And run like hell to show it off
Oh promises we made when we'd go walking That's just me and Charlie talking
 Charlie always said he'd like to leave here,
So he turned eighteen and he left our sleepy town Letters came and went and I kept waiting For Charlie to come back and bring the life he'd found It's funny how time and distance change you
The road you take don't always lead you home
You can start a love with good intentions Then you look up and it's gone

So you treat your love like a firefly Like it only gets to shine for a little while Catch it in a mason jar and with holes in the top
And run like hell to show it off
Oh the promises we made when we'd go walking That's just me and Charlie talking

Now and then I sometimes think of Charlie How we thought we new it all back then
Now I'd give anything to feel love from a child's heart again

So you treat your love like a firefly Like it only gets to shine for a little while Catch it in a mason jar and with holes in the top
And run like hell to show it off
Oh,  promises we made when we'd go walking That's just me and Charlie, me and Charlie talking

La la la la la la la
La la la la la la la, la la
