Fireflies
oleh: Owl City



You would not believe your eyesIf ten million firefliesLit up the world as I fell asleepCuz they fill the open airAnd leave teardrops everywhereYou think me rude, but I would just stand and stare
I'd like to make myself believeThat planet earth turns slowlyIt's hard to say that I'd rather stay awake when I'm asleepCuz everything is never as it seems
Cuz I get a thousand hugsFrom ten thousand lightning bugsAs they try to teach me how to danceA foxtrot above my headA sockhop beneath my bedThe disco ball is just hanging by a thread (thread, thread)
I'd like to make myself believeThat planet earth turns slowlyIt's hard to say that I'd rather stay awake when I'm asleepCuz 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 firefliesI'm weird cuz I hate goodbyesI got misty eyes as they said farewell (said farewell)But I know where several areIf my dreams get real bizarreCuz I saved a few and I keep 'em in a jar
I'd like to make myself believeThat planet earth turns slowlyIt's hard to say that I'd rather stay awake when I'm asleepCuz everything is never as it seems (when I fall asleep)
I'd like to make myself believeThat planet earth turns slowlyIt's hard to say that I'd rather stay awake when I'm asleepCuz everything is never as it seems (when I fall asleep)
I'd like to make myself believeThat planet earth turns slowlyIt's hard to say that I'd rather stay awake when I'm asleepBecause my dreams are bursting at the seams
