I heard the million screaming fireflies, 
I heard the dark sound of some thing that dies, 
I heard the cold wind whistling from her window sill, 
I heard the monster moaning somewhere on the hill. 
     I have heard the Song of Lady Fireyes 
     I have heard the Song of Lady Fireyes 
     in the night. 
 
I was there, in her presence, before the dawn, 
I was there, in her presence, but now she's gone. 
I was there when she sang her lonely only song, 
I was there and I heard her sing it sweet and long,   
     I have heard the Song of Lady Fireyes 
     I have heard the Song of Lady Fireyes 
     shrill and bright. 
 
I heard the shudder of the Netherworld, 
I heard the distance of some other world, 
I heard the deformed demons giggling in their sin, 
I heard the fires of Hell consuming mortal men: 
     I have heard the Song of Lady Fireyes 
     I have heard the Song of Lady Fireyes 
     in the night. 
 
Now I hear the million swirling butterflies, 
Now I hear the brightness of the white sunrise. 
Now I hear the softest sounds I've never heard before, 
But the sound for which I listen, I shall hear never more: 
     Yes, I have heard the Song of Lady Fireyes 
     I have heard the Song of Lady Fireyes 
     in the light.

I heard the dark sound of some thing that dies, 
 
F           Em                  G               Am 
I heard the cold wind whistling from her window sill,

I heard the monster moaning somewhere on the hill.

     I have heard the Song of Lady Fireyes 
 
            Em 
     in the night.
