GG chord               CC chord
You would not believe your eyes
FF chord              FF chord
If ten million fireflies
GG chord          CC chord               FF chord
Lit up the world as I fell asleep
GG chord                 CC chord
'Cause they'd fill the open air
FF chord                   FF chord
And leave teardrops everywhere
GG chord                      CC chord                      FF chord
You'd think me rude But I would just stand and stare

            FF chord     CC chord     EmEm chord  FF chord
That planet Earth turns slowly

It's hard to say that I'd rather stay Awake when I'm asleep

'Cause everything is never as it seems
 
 
GG chord           CC chord
'Cause I'd get a thousand hugs
FF chord
From ten thousand lightning bugs
GG chord              CC chord               FF chord
As they tried to teach me how to dance
GG chord          CC chord
a foxtrot above my head
FF chord
a sock hop beneath my bed
  GG chord             CC chord                 FF chord
a disco ball is just hanging by a thread
 
 
FF chord           CC chord             GG chord
I'd like to make myself believe

GG chord             CC chord           FF chord
Leave my door open just a crack - Please take me away from here -
GG chord               CC chord              FF chord
'Cause I feel like such an insomniac - Please take me away from here -
GG chord        CC chord                FF chord
Why do I tire of counting sheep - Please take me away from here -
GG chord               CC chord               FF chord
When I'm far too tired to fall asleep
 
GG chord              CC chord
To ten million fireflies
FF chord
I'm weird 'cause I hate goodbyes
GG chord           CC chord                     FF chord
I got misty eyes as they said farewell
GG chord                CC chord
But I'll know where several are
FF chord
If my dreams get real bizarre
GG chord                     CC chord               FF chord
'Cause I saved a few and I keep them in a jar

Do not ask for strumming patterns. Sharing online how to literally play a song (i.e. strumming, rhythm and tempo) is not allowed by the MPA (Music Publishers Association) because of copyright issues.

Carefully listen to the song and "feel" the rhythm. Once you get the basics of strumming, it'll go real quick. Maybe the strumming guide can help you.
