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

CC chord           GG chord             DD chord
I'd like to make myself believe
            CC chord     GG chord     BmBm chord  CC chord
That planet Earth turns slowly

It's hard to say that I'd rather stay Awake when I'm asleep
    CC chord             GG chord           DD chord
'Cause everything is never as it seems


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


CC chord           GG chord             DD chord
I'd like to make myself believe
            CC chord     GG chord     BmBm chord  CC chord

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

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