Fixed some errors in first tabber's version. There's a couple quick transitions at the 
of verses and choruses that I left out. Let me know if there's any problems.

Capo on the 3rd fret

[Intro]
G-C-F--(2x)


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


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


[Verse]
(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


[Chorus]
F              Am         G
I'd like to make myself believe
            F     C     Em    F
that planet Earth turns slowly
        F               C            F      G      Am
Its hard to say that I'd rather stay awake when I'm asleep
F                   C             G
'Cause everything is never as it seems
           F
When i fall asleep

G-C-F--
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


[Chorus]
F              Am         G
I'd like to make myself believe
            F     C     Em    F
that planet Earth turns slowly
        F               C            F      G      Am
Its hard to say that I'd rather stay awake when I'm asleep
F                   C             D
'Cause everything is never as it seems
           F
When i fall asleep

F              Am         G
I'd like to make myself believe
            F     C     Em    F
that planet Earth turns slowly
        F               C            F      G      Am
Its hard to say that I'd rather stay awake when I'm asleep
F                   C             G
'Cause everything is never as it seems
           F
When i fall asleep

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