Owl City Fireflies Lyrics

You would not believe your eyes,

If ten million fireflies.

Lit up the world as I fell asleep.

‘Cause 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,

‘Cause everything is never as it seems.

‘Cause 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,

‘Cause everything is never as it seems. Leave my door open just a crack (please take me away from here),

‘Cause 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 too tired to fall asleep.

To ten million fireflies,

I’m weird ’cause 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,

‘Cause I saved a few and I keep them 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,

‘Cause 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,

‘Cause 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.
