This is basically the same as the 2nd tabbers version… I just changed the chord names 
1 or 2 other things for those people who do not have a capo and want to play this song

A#-D#-G#--(2x)

A#                         D#
You would not believe your eyes
G#                           A#                    D#     C#
If ten million fireflies lit up the world as i fell asleep
A#                      D#
'Cause they'd fill the open air
G#
and leave teardrops everywhere
A#             D#                 G#
you'd think me rude but I'd just stand and stare


Chorus:
G#             D#        A#
I'd like to make myself believe
            G#    D#    Gm   G#
that planet Earth turns slowly
        G#              D#           G#     A#     Cm
Its hard to say that I'd rather stay awake when I'm asleep
G#                  D#         F/D
'Cause everything is never as it seems


(Same chords as verse)
'Cause id get a thousand hugs from ten thousand lightning bugs
as they tried to teach me how to dance
A foxtrot above my head
a sockhop beneath my bed
a disco ball is just hanging by a thread

G#             Cm        A#
I'd like to make myself believe
            G#    D#    Gm    G#
that planet Earth turns slowly
        G#              D#           G#     A#     Cm
Its hard to say that I'd rather stay awake when I'm asleep
G#                  D#            A#
'Cause everything is never as it seems
           G#
When i fall asleep

[Same chords as verse]

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 ill know where several are
if my dreams get real bizarre
'cause i saved a few and i keep them in a jar


G#             Cm        A#
I'd like to make myself believe
            G#    D#    Gm    G#
that planet Earth turns slowly
        G#              D#           G#     A#     Cm
Its hard to say that I'd rather stay awake when I'm asleep
G#                  D#            F/D
'Cause everything is never as it seems
           G#
When i fall asleep

G#             Cm        A#
I'd like to make myself believe
            G#    D#    Gm   G#
that planet Earth turns slowly
        G#              D#           G#     A#     Cm
Its hard to say that I'd rather stay awake when I'm asleep
G#                  D#            A#
'Cause everything is never as it seems
           G#
When i fall asleep

G#             Cm         A#
I'd like to make myself believe
            G#    D#    Gm    G#
that planet Earth turns slowly
        G#              D#           G#     A#      Cm
Its hard to say that I'd rather stay awake when I'm asleep
G#                  D#                A#
Because my dreams are bursting at the seams...

Correct tab, I figured this song out by ear and came on here to see if it was already posted but you bet me to it :P

If anyone else is interested the melody is in Cmin pentatonic with a cool II-I on 'slow-ly' (or

 7--5 
)

no its off.. it should be capo 3 G, C, F, G, C, F etc for the verse, and for the chorus, it should go F, C, G, F, C, G, F, C, G, Am, just listen to the piano and the bass line
