In the song 'Fireflies' I'm remembering my first time travelling, in particular being in a campsite in Nice, France, which became filled with fireflies at night. It was such a serene place and I remember my friend was so inspired and moved, she wrote a song the night we were there.
To me 'Fireflies' has a nostalgic and comforting feel. I tried to be playful with the lyrics remembering 'the fireflies dancing'. It's about feeling hopeful about the future, 'though there may be dark clouds the sun will always come'.
There are references of older lyrics I have written. The line 'free from all the chaos' is a nod to a song I collaborated on with The Durutti Column. The song is about acknowledging the past and moving on as 'time is always healing'.
