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 tear drops 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

The 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(Ha-ha)

To ten million fireflies

I’m weird cause I hate goodbyes

I got misty eyes as they said farewell(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(Jar, jar, 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)[x2]

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
