Lyrics
FIREFLIES AND ALIBIS
by Betsy Walter, Elwood Ervin, Greg Solomon


on Rosie's way back home, sooner than expected
just lost her job, feelin' all rejected
left at main, right before her eyes
at the jewelry story
huggin' by the door
is her best friend Betty, with her Billy Joe

is she dreamin' a lie, is she seein' the truth
is he pickin' in the orchard of forbidden fruit
she heads on home, puts her thoughts together
calls him at eight
they meet at the lake
man, she's gonna tar and feather

oh, Billy Joe, now here's one simple question
I don't want no hesitation, just reply
yes or no, was it you I saw with Betty
a fire flies from her eyes, and he has no alibi

so Billy Joe looks around, fumblin' through his pocket
sweatin' in the silence, with Betty's help he bought it
it's a ring of gold makin' everything right
he thinks, "God, don't let me blow it"
she freezes in the moment
and Billy Joe drops down on his knee

oh, my sweet Rose, here's one simple question
I don't want no hesitation, just reply
yes or no, are we gonna be forever
the tears fall from his eyes, like the silent fireflies

no alibi is spoken
and the moment is unfrozen
when she says...

oh, yes, thought you'd never ask the question
with no hesitation, she replies
yes, oh yes, now they're gonna be forever
and love lights the night, on the wings of fireflies

love lights the night, no need for alibis
love lights the night, forever burning bright
love lights the night, on the wings of fireflies
love lights the night, forever burning bright
