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

F           C             G
I'd like to make myself believe
            F     C     Em  F
That planet Earth turns slowly
     F                    C           F          G    Am
It's hard to say that I'd rather stay Awake when I'm asleep
    F             C           G
'Cause everything is never as it seems


G           C
'Cause I'd get a thousand hugs
F
From ten thousand lightning bugs
G              C               F
As they tried to teach me how to dance
G          C
a foxtrot above my head
F
a sock hop beneath my bed
  G             C                 F
a disco ball is just hanging by a thread


F           C             G
I'd like to make myself believe
            F     C     Em  F
That planet Earth turns slowly
     F                    C           F          G    Am
It's hard to say that I'd rather stay Awake when I'm asleep
    F             C           G
'Cause everything is never as it seems When I fall asleep

G             C           F
Leave my door open just a crack - Please take me away from here -
G               C              F
'Cause I feel like such an insomniac - Please take me away from here -
G        C                F
Why do I tire of counting sheep - Please take me away from here -
G               C               F
When I'm far too tired to fall asleep

G              C
To ten million fireflies
F
I'm weird 'cause I hate goodbyes
G           C                     F
I got misty eyes as they said farewell
G                C
But I'll know where several are
F
If my dreams get real bizarre
G                     C               F
'Cause I saved a few and I keep them in a jar


F           C             G
I'd like to make myself believe
            F     C     Em  F
That planet Earth turns slowly
     F                    C           F          G    Am
It's hard to say that I'd rather stay Awake when I'm asleep

Because my dreams are bursting at the seams
