BbBb chord               EbEb chord
You would not believe your eyes
AbAb chord              AbAb chord
If ten million fireflies
BbBb chord          EbEb chord               AbAb chord
Lit up the world as I fell asleep
BbBb chord                 EbEb chord
'Cause they'd fill the open air
AbAb chord                   AbAb chord
And leave teardrops everywhere
BbBb chord                      EbEb chord                      AbAb chord
You'd think me rude But I would just stand and stare
 
AbAb chord           EbEb chord             BbBb chord
I'd like to make myself believe
            AbAb chord     EbEb chord     GmGm chord  AbAb chord
That planet Earth turns slowly
     AbAb chord                    EbEb chord           AbAb chord          BbBb chord    CmCm chord
It's hard to say that I'd rather stay Awake when I'm asleep

'Cause everything is never as it seems
 
 
BbBb chord           EbEb chord
'Cause I'd get a thousand hugs
AbAb chord
From ten thousand lightning bugs
BbBb chord              EbEb chord               AbAb chord
As they tried to teach me how to dance
BbBb chord          EbEb chord
a foxtrot above my head
AbAb chord
a sock hop beneath my bed
  BbBb chord             EbEb chord                 AbAb chord
a disco ball is just hanging by a thread
 
 
AbAb chord           EbEb chord             BbBb chord
I'd like to make myself believe
            AbAb chord     EbEb chord     GmGm chord  AbAb chord
That planet Earth turns slowly

'Cause everything is never as it seems When I fall asleep
 
BbBb chord             EbEb chord           AbAb chord
Leave my door open just a crack - Please take me away from here -
BbBb chord               EbEb chord              AbAb chord
'Cause I feel like such an insomniac - Please take me away from here -
BbBb chord        EbEb chord                AbAb chord
Why do I tire of counting sheep - Please take me away from here -
BbBb chord               EbEb chord               AbAb chord
When I'm far too tired to fall asleep
 
BbBb chord              EbEb chord
To ten million fireflies
AbAb chord
I'm weird 'cause I hate goodbyes
BbBb chord           EbEb chord                     AbAb chord
I got misty eyes as they said farewell
BbBb chord                EbEb chord
But I'll know where several are
AbAb chord
If my dreams get real bizarre
BbBb chord                     EbEb chord               AbAb chord
'Cause I saved a few and I keep them in a jar

Do not ask for strumming patterns. Sharing online how to literally play a song (i.e. strumming, rhythm and tempo) is not allowed by the MPA (Music Publishers Association) because of copyright issues. Carefully listen to the song and "feel" the rhythm. Once you get the basics of strumming, it'll go real quick.
