[Intro]
A#-D#-G#--(2x)

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

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

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

[Verse]
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] x3
G#             Cm        A#
I'd like to make myself believe
            G#    D#    Gm    G#
that planet Earth turns slowly
        G#              D#           G#     A#     Cm
Its hard to say that I'd rather stay awake when I'm asleep
G#                  D#            F/D
'Cause everything is never as it seems
           G#
When i fall asleep

Correct tab, I figured this song out by ear and came on here to see if it was already posted but you bet me to it :P

If anyone else is interested the melody is in Cmin pentatonic with a cool II-I on 'slow-ly' (or

7--5
)

Hey man, the chords are technically correct, but should be written out in the key of Bb, which the song is in.

You'll never hear someone say "Start me off in A#"
