Fireflies

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

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 sock hop beneath my bed
A disco ball is just hanging by a thread (thread, thread)

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 (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 (said farewell)
But I'll know where several are
If my dreams get real bizarre
Cause I saved a few and I keep them in a jar

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

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 (when I fall asleep)

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
Because my dreams are bursting at the seams
