lyrics

if we had flashlights,
then we could go outside
and play at night

if we had flashlights....

if we could be really quiet,
then we could go outside
and explore our neighborhood

if we could be really quiet....

in the pines,
the ferns the flowers,
we found a well
and drank its waters

i sensed the spell
from the kiss of her lips
the taste of bloodroot
and cayenne peppers

but it was summer,
i knew no better,
so i followed her
for a drink of water

beyond the vines,
the hills the towers,
there lives the girl
i meant to marry

but we were young,
and i was scared
she was hungry
and i was thirsty

now, children
playing in the meadows,
singing songs
and chasing crows

listen to me
carefully
don't you do
what i have done

if we had flashlights,
then we could go outside
and play at night

if we had flashlights....
