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

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


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


DbDb chord           AbAb chord             EbEb chord
I'd like to make myself believe
            DbDb chord     AbAb chord     CmCm chord  DbDb chord
That planet Earth turns slowly

It's hard to say that I'd rather stay Awake when I'm asleep
    DbDb chord             AbAb chord           EbEb chord
'Cause everything is never as it seems When I fall asleep

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

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


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