Capo on the 3rd fret


[Verse]

C                          G
You would not believe your eyes
Am              F             C                     G      Am  F
If ten million fireflies lit up the world as i fell asleep
C                      G
'Cause they'd fill the open air 
Am                  F    
and leave teardrops 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
            Am     C     G    F
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                   C          D (still unsure about last chord!)
'Cause everything is never as it seems


[Verse]

C                          G
'Cause id get a thousand hugs from ten thousand lightning bugs
Am              F             C                     G      Am  F
as they tried to teach me how to dance
C                      G
A foxtrot above my head
Am                  F    
a sockhop 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
            Am     C     G    F
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                   C          D (still unsure about last chord!)
'Cause everything is never as it seems


[Verse]

C                   G       
When i fall asleep leave my door open just a crack
Am              F
(please take me away from here)
C                          G
'Cause i feel like such an insomniac
Am                  F
(please take me away from here)
N.C.
why do i tire of counting sheep
(please take me away from here)
when I'm far too tired to fall asleep

C                   G   
To ten million fireflies
Am              F
I'm weird 'cause i hate goodbyes
C                   G 
i got misty eyes as they said farewell
Am              F
but ill know where several are
C                   G 
if my dreams get real bizarre
Am              F
'cause i saved a few and i keep them in a jar


[Chorus]

Am               C         G
I'd like to make myself believe
            Am     C     G    F
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                   C          D (still unsure about last chord!)
'Cause everything is never as it seems

Am               C         G
I'd like to make myself believe
            Am     C     G    F
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                   C          D (still unsure about last chord!)
'Cause everything is never as it seems

70% too much Am, and lots of mixed up F's, G's, and C's.
