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

GbGb chord           DbDb chord             AbAb chord
I'd like to make myself believe
            GbGb chord     DbDb chord     FmFm chord  GbGb chord
That planet Earth turns slowly
     GbGb chord                    DbDb chord           GbGb chord          AbAb chord    BbmBbm chord
It's hard to say that I'd rather stay Awake when I'm asleep
    GbGb chord             DbDb chord           AbAb chord
'Cause everything is never as it seems


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


GbGb chord           DbDb chord             AbAb chord
I'd like to make myself believe
            GbGb chord     DbDb chord     FmFm chord  GbGb chord
That planet Earth turns slowly
     GbGb chord                    DbDb chord           GbGb chord          AbAb chord    BbmBbm chord
It's hard to say that I'd rather stay Awake when I'm asleep
    GbGb chord             DbDb chord           AbAb chord
'Cause everything is never as it seems When I fall asleep

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

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


GbGb chord           DbDb chord             AbAb chord
I'd like to make myself believe
