Intro -x2-: Em D Bm C

Verse:
Em                          D
What are the words that I'm supposed to say?
Bm                             C
Your white skin, swirling fireflies.
Em                          D
Darkness has surrounded Baltimore bay.
Bm                           C
Why don't you open your blue eyes?
Em                               D
Are they things that water can't wash away?
G                              C
How can your absence leave no trace?
Em                        D
As I let you sink in Baltimore bay.
G                         C
I drown myself deep in disgrace.

Interlude -x2-: Em D G C

Verse:
Em                            D
What is the price, am I supposed to pay?
G                            C
For all the things I try to hide?
Em                          D
What is my fate, am I supposed to pray?
G                                C
That trouble's gone with the sunlight?

Interlude -x2-: Em D G C

Verse:
Gbm                             E
A warm sun rises and ignites the bay.
A                             D
I come back home and start to cry
Gbm                         E
I'll never come back to Baltimore bay.
A                      D
Try to forget the fireflies.
Gbm                             E
What are the words that I'm supposed to say?
A                          D
If someone knew about this lie?
Gbm                       E
If your body rises to the surface?
A                          D
Through the silence of fireflies
