I love to sit and watch the world
From crazy stuntmen to pretty girls
Sometimes I write it down so I can remember later

And believe me there are a few pearls
But they're all other people's lives unfurled
I wonder who is listening if I am their translator

I'm always standing around with my hands in my pockets
So afraid of gravity pullin my arms out of their sockets
Showing the world I'm afraid to join in

I just don't want to end up like Mr. Calvarew
With a hole in my pants and missing a shoe
Walking down Bentley Avenue
The world would laugh and I would cry
But we all know it's a different reason why
It's more elusive than a firefly

Still the world's pretty interesting
I'm not entirely sure what I am suggesting
But I'll take a moment to try and see it clearer

If this world is like a meal that's digesting
I kinda see how you'd end up detesting
That I'm part of the part that's in the rearer

I'm always standing around with my hands in my pockets
So afraid of gravity pullin my arms out of their sockets
Showing the world I'm afraid to join in

I just don't want to end up like Mr. Calvarew
With a hole in my pants and missing a shoe
Walking down Bentley Avenue
The world would laugh and I would cry
But we all know it's a different reason why
It's more elusive than a firefly

Grab your net
Let's run off to the field together
We're not there yet, but
We couldn't ask for more beautiful weather

I'm always standing around with my hands in my pockets
So afraid of gravity pullin my arms out of their sockets
Showing the world I'm afraid to join in

I just don't want to end up like Mr. Calvarew
With a hole in my pants and missing a shoe
Walking down Bentley Avenue
The world would laugh and I would cry
But we all know it's a different reason why
It's more elusive than a firefly
It's more elusive than a firefly
