[Verse 1]
In the backyard
Laying on our backs
We were fireflies
Burning way too fast
Midnight only you and me perfect as can be I still see it now
Blue jean lean in for a kiss
Summer on your lips blanket on the ground and

[Chorus 1]
Greener grassRemember that
Cause baby I do
And it keeps me up all night long looking back
Running through my head
Baby I try to, but I can’t forget
Yeah on this side of the fence
No, nothing makes sense
I wish I would have known what I had was greener grass
Greener grass

[Verse 2]
We were secrets
Whispered in the dark
We were golden
Underneath the stars
You never know just what you have til it ain’t coming back
Ain’t that how it goes
Silver moon up in the sky
Diamonds in my eyes
And pulling you in close on

[Chorus 2]
Greener grass
Remember that Cause baby I do
And it keeps me up all night long looking back
Running through my head
Baby I try to, but I can’t forget Yeah it won’t leave me alone
And it cuts me to the bone Knowing that I can’t go back
To greener grass Greener grass

We were fireflies burning way too fast in

[Repeat Chorus 2]
