Fireflies
By Randy Adams My Pretty Thief 
Looking for a little light
 Waiting on the moon to rise
 You never know what you might find
In a field of fireflies

 We are walking
Out among the weeds
 Hear the water
 The whispering of reeds
 Feel the bluebells
Underneath our feet
 What's the chance that I would find you? 
Looking for a little light too

 Looking for a little dark 
A raven and a meadowlark
 You never know what you might find
In a field of fireflies 

In the water
 We are ripples on the edge
 I will taste you 
Sweet apple blossom red
 I will touch you 
With the talons of my hear t
What's the chance that I would find you?
 Looking for a little darkness too

 Looking for a little love 
Counting every star above
 You never know what you might find
 In a field of fireflies. Lightning Post By Randy Adams My Pretty Thief

 Lightning on the lightning post 
You’re the one I love the most 
Dancing in the Sun
 Shining through the cotton pressed against your skin

 Through the thunder wind and rain
 We are walking hand in hand
 Mud between our toes
 Laughing as we nudge each other down the lane 

I will not wait
 While the storming heart of Summer is exploding in your eyes 

Dry your hair off in the Sun 
Let your buttons come undone
 Lean in for a kiss
 Fragile as the string I tied around your wrist

 I will not wait 
While the stormy heart of Summer is exploding in your eyes 

Sweet as you are
 Siding with me 
Sweet as you are
 I won't miss this chance To take You 

I will not wait 
While the stormy heart of Summer is exploding in your eyes

 Tire swinging from a tree 
Clover licking at your feet 
Catbird on a limb
 Reminding me that
You’re the song I want to sing My Pretty Thief By Randy Adams My Pretty Thief 
Such a pretty thief To steal my heart away
 Wear me like a chain around your neck 
Put me close to you
 That's where I want to be 
Near the rising and the falling of your breath

 Of all of the love we are born to suffer
I will suffer you

 You ask me about love
 Like I know what it is
 Like I hold any evidence at all
 But I can tell you this
I am staring down the sun
 To touch the places where your shadow falls

 Of all of the love we are born to suffer
I will suffer you

 Lightning strikes 
The summer heat 
All the sky surrounding 
Barely beats
 Take this kiss
 My pretty thief To steal the taste of summer ending Out my window here tonight 
Seven sisters shining bright 
A beautiful attempt 
There’s no denying
 But sit them next to you
 And they’re just ordinary girls
 Barely standing out against the sky Of all of the love we are born to suffer
I will suffer you

 Lightning strikes
 The summer heat
 All the sky surrounding 
Barely beats
Take this kiss 
My pretty thief
 To steal the taste of summer ending By the stars you grow glimmering wings 
Hover near me, and I’ll tie a tethering string
 By the night we are flicker and spark
 Dancing spirals entwined in the dark Awakening the dream remains
 The tether tied
 To you
 My love
 To you
 Sweet pain The grass is down to dirt
 Where the footsteps of my dreams 
Have worn away a path up to your door
 And I can hear my pretty thief 
Singing novelty and charm From an open window on the second floor

Kissing Crows By Randy Adams Redbud and the Willow Tree Tying string around our wrists Who could ask for more than this? One for me and one for you We will break the sun and fly away As kissing crows Side by side Together we fly No need for sleep No need for dreams Tying string around our wrists Who could ask for more than this? One for me and one for you We will break the sun and fly away As kissing crows We are born The beating of our hearts But beating hearts we need no more Now that we’ve untied the thread Loosened every knot We will break the sun and fly away As kissing crows Fly away as kissing crows Fly away Speaking in Tongues By Randy Adams Redbud and the Willow Tree The words are in my heart My heart is always here for you It just is as it is Not as we imagined Speaking in tongues I let go of all sense of things Speaking in tongues I let of all sense of things I’ve lost all sense of time Hollowed out and empty Doesn’t matter where I go The sun and moon still follow me Speaking in tongues I let go of all sense of things Speaking in tongues I let go of all sense of things Blowing in the wind Summer leaves are holding strong Birds singing summer songs Just as we imagined Speaking in tongues I let go of all sense of things Speaking in tongues I let go
