To be the last to leave...
The last to be gone
 Stolen from the ones
Who held onto him
To be the last in line
From the ones that live on
 Silhouette of a dream  Treasured by the ones
Who held on to him
 Almost a breakdown 
Of our love affair...
The stiletto cuts quick 
Like a whip through the air
Long distance winners
Will we survive the flight 
Not one of us runs
From the firelight 
And I would love to believe 
I believe what you say
But in the drama of the moment 
Oh well there is no easy way
No-one ever leaves  Everyone stays close 'til the fire fades 
To be the last to leave 
Well, what caused the fearsome  Divorce in the night 
When there was no competition 
Well to survive, do it right 
And you can believe in the five
To survive the distance  Everyone fights...everyone fights....
And the fire flies 
Well what happened to my feelings....
 There were angry words in the night 
Some call it our nightmare 
My five fireflies 
Oh like a sailing ship...
But not one of us runs..
 OOooohhh -why...
It's our love affair 
It cuts like a whip through the air
And I would love to believe 
To believe what you say
It's ok..........
