Capo on 3rd fret

[Verse 1]
C                G
 You would not believe your eyes
Am               F
  If ten million fireflies
C           G                 Am
 Lit up the world as I fell asleep
C                    G
 Cuz they'd fill the open air
Am                    F
 And leave tear-drops everywhere
       C                 G                Am      F 
 You'd think me rude but I'd just stand and stare

[Chorus]
Am           C             G     
 I'd like to make myself believe 
F             Am    C     G   Am
  That planet earth turns slowly
    Am                   G            C         G     Am 
Its hard to say that I'd rather stay awake when I'm asleep
    Am            G            C
Cuz everything is never as it seems

[Verse 2]
C                 G
 'Cause I'd get a thousand hugs
Am                 F
 From ten thousand lightning bugs
C                 G               Am    F
 As they tried to teach me how to dance

C           G           
 A foxtrot above my head
Am            F
 A sock hop beneath my bed
  C             G                Am       F
A disco ball is just hanging by a  thread

[Chorus]
Am           C             G     
 I'd like to make myself believe 
F             Am    C     G   Am
  That planet earth turns slowly
    Am                   G            C         G     Am 
Its hard to say that I'd rather stay awake when I'm asleep
    Am            G            C
Cuz everything is never as it seems

[Bridge]
C              G           Am
 Leave my door open just a crack
        F                 C
(Please take me away from here)
                    G             Am
 'Cause I feel like such an insomniac
        F                 C
(Please take me away from here)
         G                Am
Why do I tire of counting sheep
        F                 C
(Please take me away from here)
                 G              Am     Fm
When I'm far too tired to fall asleep

[Verse 3]
C               G
 To ten million fireflies
Am                  F
 I'm weird 'cause I hate goodbyes
  C              G            Am       F
I got misty eyes as they said farewell

C                    G         
 But I'll know where several are
Am                F           
 If my dreams get real bizarre
          C                 G             Am    F
 'Cause I saved a few and I keep them in a  jar

[Outro]
Am           C             G     
 I'd like to make myself believe 
F             Am    C     G   Am
  That planet earth turns slowly
    Am                   G            C         G     Am 
Its hard to say that I'd rather stay awake when I'm asleep
    Am            G            C
Cuz everything is never as it seems
             C
When I fall asleep (x2)

Am           C             G     
 I'd like to make myself believe 
F             Am    C     G   Am
  That planet earth turns slowly
    Am                   G            C         G     Am 
Its hard to say that I'd rather stay awake when I'm asleep
  C                   G               Am     F            C
Because my dreams are bursting at the seams
