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

Db           Ab             Eb
I'd like to make myself believe
            Db     Ab     Cm  Db
That planet Earth turns slowly
     Db                    Ab           Db          Eb    Fm
It's hard to say that I'd rather stay Awake when I'm asleep
    Db             Ab           Eb
'Cause everything is never as it seems


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


Db           Ab             Eb
I'd like to make myself believe
            Db     Ab     Cm  Db
That planet Earth turns slowly
     Db                    Ab           Db          Eb    Fm
It's hard to say that I'd rather stay Awake when I'm asleep
    Db             Ab           Eb
'Cause everything is never as it seems When I fall asleep

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

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


Db           Ab             Eb
I'd like to make myself believe
            Db     Ab     Cm  Db
That planet Earth turns slowly
     Db                    Ab           Db          Eb    Fm
It's hard to say that I'd rather stay Awake when I'm asleep
    Db             Ab           Eb
'Cause everything is never as it seems When I fall asleep


Db           Ab             Eb
I'd like to make myself believe
            Db     Ab     Cm  Db
That planet Earth turns slowly
     Db                    Ab           Db          Eb    Fm
It's hard to say that I'd rather stay Awake when I'm asleep
    Db             Ab           Eb
'Cause everything is never as it seems When I fall asleep


Db           Ab             Eb
I'd like to make myself believe
            Db     Ab     Cm  Db
That planet earth turns slowly
     Db                    Ab           Db          Eb    Fm
It's hard to say that I'd rather stay Awake when I'm asleep
  Db                   Ab               Eb      Eb  Ab
Because my dreams are bursting at the seams

ZZtop

hi everybody! Honestly you can do any thing you put your mind to. This may sound like i’m giving a pep talk, but Honestly people if you think you can play a song. you probably can!

Mason D

DDUDUDUDU

Brittany Goble

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

Sarah

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

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

I play this song almost all day.!! I love it so much!!! <3

Ashleigh The Uke Player
