I was ever chasing fireflies

Fire Flies is a song by Gorillaz, and the ninth track and fourth single from their sixth studio album, The Now Now.

Background[]

Fire Flies originated from a demo written during the Humanz Tour titled London. This demo was seven minutes long, resulting in it being split into two tracks: the longest and more upbeat section was reworked into Sorcererz (originally titled 'The Sorcererz', which remained its predecessor on the final version of the album) while the more calm and melancholic ending ventured into Fire Flies.

The single was released digitally on 14 June 2018 with an accompanying visualiser, featuring aperances from 2-D, Russel, Noodle and Ace.

Lyrics[]

[Verse 1]
If you see me floating too many times
My face will be painted in these white brick lines

[Refrain]
'Cause all my fears invaded
All the crazies put on buses and sent up here to find you
Living on the limits

[Verse 2]
And if you say goodbye too many times
The sentinels will find me and switch me off this time

[Refrain]
'Cause all my fear's evaded
All the crazies put on buses and sent up here to find you
Living on the limits

[Chorus]
If all you ever get from the sonnet is the count of the fallen man
Every call and cost made to your heart
You were in the kind of game that put the force in me
I was ever chasing fireflies

[Bridge]
Sometimes I follow a firefly
It takes me into the night
Baby, I just survive
I got drunk, I'm sorry
Am I losing you?
Sometimes I follow a firefly
It takes me into the night
Baby, I just survive
I got drunk, I'm sorry
Am I losing you?

[Chorus]
If all you ever get from the sonnet is the count of the fallen man
(Takes me into the night)
Every call and cost made to your heart
(Sorry, am I losing you?)
You were in the kind of game that put the force in me
(Takes me into the night)
I was ever chasing fireflies
