    Fireflies

    Owl City

    from the album Ocean Eyes
    Buy on Amazon

    Play sample

    You would not believe your eyes
    If ten million fireflies
    Lit up the world as I fell asleep

    'Cause they'd fill the open air
    And leave teardrops everywhere
    You'd 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'd get a thousand hugs
    From ten thousand lightning bugs
    As they tried to teach me how to dance

    A foxtrot above my head
    A sock hop beneath my bed
    A disco ball is just hanging by a 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
    When I fall asleep

    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

    But I'll 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
    Because my dreams are bursting at the seams
