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

E           B             Gb
I'd like to make myself believe
            E     B     Ebm  E
That planet Earth turns slowly
     E                    B           E          Gb    Abm
It's hard to say that I'd rather stay Awake when I'm asleep
    E             B           Gb
'Cause everything is never as it seems


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


E           B             Gb
I'd like to make myself believe
            E     B     Ebm  E
That planet Earth turns slowly
     E                    B           E          Gb    Abm
It's hard to say that I'd rather stay Awake when I'm asleep
    E             B           Gb
'Cause everything is never as it seems When I fall asleep

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

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


E           B             Gb
I'd like to make myself believe
            E     B     Ebm  E
That planet Earth turns slowly
     E                    B           E          Gb    Abm
It's hard to say that I'd rather stay Awake when I'm asleep
    E             B           Gb
'Cause everything is never as it seems When I fall asleep


E           B             Gb
I'd like to make myself believe
            E     B     Ebm  E
That planet Earth turns slowly
     E                    B           E          Gb    Abm
It's hard to say that I'd rather stay Awake when I'm asleep
    E             B           Gb

Because my dreams are bursting at the seams

Bro Man

I think this song just deserves a kermit the frog singing voice

ZZtop

Sarah

Keep the same chord but put a capo on the 3rd fret it sounds more like the song.

Mason D

DDUDUDUDU

Brittany Goble

Thank you for that lol that’s what I was needing lol

Aaron Münch

I think the first time you sing “When I fall asleep” souds weird with just staying on G. So I added in my version an F on asleep and after that C Em Am F C G. I think it sounds pretty good you should try it.

Yolo Frodo

This sounds so good on ukulele

cherry sprite

capo in the third fret to get the same key as the original and you can live out all your meme dreams <3

Zztop

Mary

Ashleigh The Uke Player
