Verse 1:
Bb                Eb
  You would not believe your eyes
G#
  If ten million fireflies
Bb           Eb                G#
  lit up the world as i fell asleep
Bb                      Eb     
  Cause they'd fill the open air
G#
  and leave teardrops everywhere
      Bb
you'd think me rude but 
Eb                  G#
I'd just stand and stare


Chorus 1:
G#            Eb/G          Bb
  I'd like to make myself believe
            G#    Eb     Gm G#
that planet Earth turns slowly
    G#                   Eb
Its hard to say that I'd rather 
      G#        Bb    Cm
stay awake when I'm asleep
      G#            Eb/G        Fm   Eb/G
Cause everything is never as it seems

Verse 2:
Bb                Eb
  Cause i'd get a thousand hugs 
G#
  from ten thousand lightning bugs
Bb
  as they tried to 
Eb              G#
teach me how to dance
Bb           Eb
  A foxtrot above my head
G#
  a sockhop beneath my bed
  Bb            Eb
a disco ball is just 
             G#
hanging by a thread


(Repeat Chorus 1)


Post Chorus:
         G#(hold)
I fall asleep


Verse 3:
Bb              Eb          G#      
  leave my door open just a crack
(please take me away from here)
Bb                  Eb             G#
  Cause i feel like such an insomniac
(please take me away from here)
Bb         Eb               G#
  why do i tire of counting sheep
(please take me away from here)
Bb             Eb                 G#
  when I'm far too tired to fall asleep


Verse 4:
Bb               Eb
  To ten million fireflies
G#
  I'm weird cause i hate goodbyes
Bb            Eb                G#
  i got misty eyes as they said farewell
Bb                    Eb
  but i'll know where several are
G#
  if my dreams get real bizarre
      Bb
cause i saved a few and 
Eb               G#
i keep them in a jar


(Repeat Chorus 1 twice)


Chorus 2:
G#            Eb/G          Bb
  I'd like to make myself believe
            G#    Eb     Gm G#
that planet Earth turns slowly
    G#                   Eb
Its hard to say that I'd rather 
      G#        Bb    Cm
stay awake when I'm asleep
  G#
Because my dreams are 
Eb              Bb(hold)
bursting at the seams
