Such lovely evocative words from Cindy...

Lyrics: 

We were seven
Summer night
Chasing fireflies

It was heaven
They glowed bright
Shining in your eyes

You liked me
I liked you
We had so much fun

Running free
Just us two
How we loved to run

Back when life was innocent
And I had such a crush
Every time you looked at me
I couldn't help but blush
I fell for those dimples
And the freckles on your face
You and me and childhood
Was such a magical place

You were my first kiss
And I so still miss
Those days

We were ten
Growing up
Our lives shifting

Not sure when
We broke up
But we were drifting

Time moved on
We did too
I remember your eyes

Though it's gone
I think of you
And chasing fireflies

Back when life was innocent
And I had such a crush
Every time you looked at me
I couldn't help but blush
I fell for those dimples
And the freckles on your face
You and me and childhood
Was such a magical place

Oh, man--do I love these lyrics. Reading them pre-song, I thought they would work well with a 50s vibe and...Gwyn came through! Great job arranging this and making a really terrific song out of it!
