Song of the Moment: “Fireflies”

Labor Day Weekend, the unofficial end of summer, is coming up— so sad, although I do love autumn as well. It’s a great time of year, though, for this beautiful song, which I acquired from my friend Jenny. I don’t know any other songs by Ron Pope, but after hearing this lovely song, “Fireflies,” I want to check out more of them. It’s a song about two summer lovers having to say goodbye at the end of summer, and the lyrics are just gorgeous, especially the chorus:

Like autumn turns leaves,

The winter will breathe

Cold on our necks,

Snow in our paths.

Wherever she goes,

All that I know about us

Is that beautiful things never last.

That’s why fireflies flash.
