Fireflies, by Owl City

…You would not believe your eyes

If ten million fireflies lit up the world as i fell asleep

‘Cause they’d fill the open air

And leave teardrops everywhere

You’d think me rude but I’d just stand and stare

Chorus

I’d like to make myself believe

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

‘Cause I’d get a thousand hugs from ten thousand lightning bugs

As they tried to teach me how to dance

A foxtrot above my head

A sockhop beneath my bed

A disco ball is just hanging by a thread

Repeat chorus

When I fall asleep leave my door open just a crack

(Please take me away from here) ‘Cause I feel like such an insomniac

(Please take me away from here) Why do I tire of counting sheep

(Please take me away from here) When I’m far too tired to fall asleep

To ten million fireflies I’m weird ’cause I hate goodbyes

I got misty eyes as they said farewell

But ill know where several are

If my dreams get real bizarre

‘Cause I saved a few and I keep them in a jar

repeat chorus:

I’d like to make myself believe that planet earth turns slowly

It’s hard to say that I’d rather stay awake when I’m asleep

‘Cause my dreams are bursting at the seams…
