[Intro]
G Cadd9 Fadd9

[Verse 1]
G             Cadd9
You would not believe your eyes
Fadd9
If ten million fireflies
G          Cadd9           Fadd9
Lit up the world as I fell asleep
G                      Cadd9
'Cause they'd fill the open air
Fadd9
And leave teardrops everywhere
      G        
You'd think me rude
    Cadd9                  Fadd9
But I would just stand and stare

[Chorus]
Fadd9       G           D
I'd like to make myself believe
            Fadd9 G     Em7-Cadd9
That planet Earth turns slowly
     Fadd9                G
It's hard to say that I'd rather stay
Em7            Cadd9
Awake when I'm asleep
       Fadd9         G           D
'Cause everything is never as it seems

[Verse 2]
G                Cadd9
'Cause I'd get a thousand hugs
Fadd9
From ten thousand lightning bugs
G                Cadd9           Fadd9
As they tried to teach me how to dance
G          Cadd9    
A fox trot above my head
Fadd9
A sock hop beneath my bed
  G                 Cadd9             Fadd9
A disco ball that's just hanging by a thread

[Chorus]
Fadd9       G           D
I'd like to make myself believe
            Fadd9 G     Em7-Cadd9
That planet Earth turns slowly
     Fadd9                G
It's hard to say that I'd rather stay
Em7            Cadd9
Awake when I'm asleep
       Fadd9         G           D
'Cause everything is never as it seems

[Bridge]
G             Cadd9       Fadd9
Leave my door open just a crack
(Please take me away from here)
G                  Cadd9          Fadd9
'Cause I feel like such an insomniac
(Please take me away from here)
G        Cadd9            Fadd9
Why do I tire of counting sheep
(Please take me away from here)
G                Cadd9         Fadd9
When I'm far too tired to fall asleep

[Verse 3]
G              Cadd9
To ten million fireflies
Fadd9
I'm weird 'cause I hate goodbyes
G           Cadd9             Fadd9
I got misty eyes as they said farewell
G                   Cadd9
But I'll know where several are
Fadd9
If my dreams get real bizarre
       G                 Cadd9            Fadd9
'Cause I saved a few and I keep them in a jar

[Chorus]
Fadd9       G           D
I'd like to make myself believe
            Fadd9 G     Em7-Cadd9
That planet Earth turns slowly
     Fadd9                G
It's hard to say that I'd rather stay
Em7            Cadd9
Awake when I'm asleep
       Fadd9         G           D
'Cause everything is never as it seems
            Cadd9
When I fall asleep

[Chorus]
Fadd9       G           D
I'd like to make myself believe
            Fadd9 G     Em7-Cadd9
That planet Earth turns slowly
     Fadd9                G
It's hard to say that I'd rather stay
Em7            Cadd9
Awake when I'm asleep
       Fadd9         G           D
'Cause everything is never as it seems
            Cadd9
When I fall asleep

[Chorus/Outro]
Fadd9       G           D
I'd like to make myself believe
            Fadd9 G     Em7-Cadd9
That planet Earth turns slowly
     Fadd9                G
It's hard to say that I'd rather stay
Em7            Cadd9
Awake when I'm asleep
Fadd9                 G               D
Because my dreams are bursting at the seams
