Fireflies

You would not believe your eyes

If ten million fireflies

Lit up the world as I fell asleep

Cuz they fill the open air

And leave teardrops everywhere

You think me rude, but I would just stand and stare

I’d like to make myself believe

That planet earth turns slowly

It’s hard to say that I’d rather stay awake when I’m asleep

Cuz everything is never as it seems

Cuz I get a thousand hugs

From ten thousand lightning bugs

As they try to teach me how to dance

A foxtrot above my head

A sockhop beneath my bed

The disco ball is just hanging by a thread (thread, thread)

I’d like to make myself believe

That planet earth turns slowly

It’s hard to say that I’d rather stay awake when I’m asleep

Cuz everything is never as it seems (when I fall asleep)

Leave my door open just a crack (Please take me away from here)

Cuz I feel like such an insomniac (Please take me away from here)

Why do I tire of counting sheep? (Please take me away from here)

When I’m far to tired to fall asleep

To ten million fireflies

I’m weird cuz I hate goodbyes

I got misty eyes as they said farewell (said farewell)

But I know where several are

If my dreams get real bizarre

Cuz I saved a few and I keep ‘em in a jar

I’d like to make myself believe

That planet earth turns slowly

It’s hard to say that I’d rather stay awake when I’m asleep

Cuz everything is never as it seems (when I fall asleep)

I’d like to make myself believe

That planet earth turns slowly

It’s hard to say that I’d rather stay awake when I’m asleep

Cuz everything is never as it seems (when I fall asleep)

I’d like to make myself believe

That planet earth turns slowly

It’s hard to say that I’d rather stay awake when I’m asleep

Because my dreams are bursting at the seams
