Capo 1:

Intro:A D G A D G A D G A D G

Verse:
A                   D 
  You would not believe your eyes,
G 
  If ten million fireflies,
A             D                 G
  Lit up the world as I fell asleep,
A                        D
 'Cause they'd fill the open air,
G 
  And leave teardrops everywhere,
A    
  You'd think me rude,
      D                     G
  But I would just stand and stare,

Chorus:
G              D              A                G     D     F#m    G
  I'd like to make myself believe that planet Earth turns slow---ly,
                             D            G         A     Bm
  It's hard to say that I'd rather stay awake when I'm asleep,
       G             D            E   D/F#
  Cos everything is never as it seems,

Verse:
A                D           G              
 'Cos I'd get a thousand hugs from ten thousand lightning bugs,
A                   D        D/F#     G
  As they tried to teach me how to dance,
A             D
  A foxtrot above my head,
G
  A sock hop beneath my bed,
     A             D                 G     Bm G
  A disco ball is just hanging by a thread,

Chorus:
G              Bm            A                 G     D     F#m    G
  I'd like to make myself believe that planet Earth turns slow---ly,
        G                    D            G         A     Bm
  It's hard to say that I'd rather stay awake when I'm asleep,
       G             D            A           Bm      G
  Cos everything is never as it seems when I fall asleep,

Bridge:
A               D             G
  Leave my door open just a crack, (Please take me away from here)
A                    D              G
 'Cause I feel like such an insomniac,(Please take me away from here)
A           D                 G
  Why do I tire of counting sheep, (Please take me away from here)
A                   D        D/F#   G
  When I'm far too tired to fall asleep,

Breakdown:
A                 D
  To ten million fireflies,
G
  I'm weird 'cause I hate goodbyes,
A              D                 G
  I got misty eyes as they said farewell,
A                      D
  But I'll know where several are,
G
  If my dreams get real bizarre,
A                         D       D/F#      G   Bm G
 'Cause I saved a few and I keep them in a jar,

Coda:
G              Bm             A
  I'd like to make myself believe,
               G     D      F#m   G 
  That planet Earth turns slow---ly,
                             D
  It's hard to say that I'd rather stay,
    G         A     Bm
  Awake when I'm asleep,
         G             A            E
 'Cause everything is never as it seems,
          D/F#    G
  When I fall asleep,
               Bm             A
  I'd like to make myself believe,
               G     D     F#m    G
  That planet Earth turns slow---ly,
                             D
  It's hard to say that I'd rather stay,
    G         A     Bm
  Awake when I'm asleep,
         G             D           A
 'Cause everything is never as it seems,
          Bm
  When I fall asleep,

Outro:
G              Bm            A
  I'd like to make myself believe,
               G      D    F#m    G
  That planet Earth turns slow---ly,
                             A
  It's hard to say that I'd rather stay,
     G        A     Bm
  Awake when I'm asleep,
     G                   D                A
  Because my dreams are bursting at the seams,
