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


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


Verse:
G              C
'Cause I'd get a thousand hugs
F
From ten thousand lightning bugs
G                C               F
As they tried to teach me how to dance
G          C
A fox trot above my head
F
A sock hop beneath my bed
G                   C                 F
A disco ball that's 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
It's hard to say that I'd rather stay
F     G        Am
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:
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 X2:
F           Am          G
I'd like to make myself believe
            F     C     Em  F
That planet Earth turns slowly
     F                    C
It's hard to say that I'd rather stay
F     G        Am
Awake when I'm asleep
F                    C           G
'Cause everything is never as it seems
            F
When I fall asleep

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

agreeing with iheartguitarz - the intro sounded somewhat bizarre. but the rest is great, and perfect for beginners!
