[Intro]

G C F  
G C F  


[Verse 1]

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 1]

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


[Verse 2]

G                C             F
'Cause I'd get a thousand hugs from ten thousand lightning bugs
G                C                F
as they tried to teach me how to dance
G         C
A foxtrot above my head
F
a sockhop beneath my bed
G                 C                    F
a disco ball is just hanging by a thread


[Chorus 2]

F              Am         G
I'd like to make myself believe
            F     C     Em    F
that planet Earth turns slowly
         F               C            F      G      Am
It's 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


[Bridge]

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


[Verse 3]

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


[Chorus 3]

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

What's the strumming pattern?
