Owl City - Fireflies
Capo 3rd

Intro     G     |C     |F      |      ||x4

Verse 1
G                 C             F
 You would not believe your eyes if ten million fireflies
G            C                  F
 Lit up the world as I fell asleep
G                       C       F
 'Cause they'd fill the open air and leave teardrops everywhere
G                       C                     F
You'd think me rude but I would just stand and stare


Chorus
F             Am             G                F     C     Em  F
 I'd like to make myself believe 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           F
 A foxtrot above my head, a sock hop beneath my bed
G                 C                   F
 A disco ball is just hanging by a thread


Chorus
F             Am             G                F     C     Em  F
 I'd like to make myself believe 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           Am     F
 'Cause everything is never as it seems when I fall asleep


Verse 3
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



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


Chorus
F             Am             G                F     C     Em  F
 I'd like to make myself believe 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             Am             G                F     C     Em  F
 I'd like to make myself believe 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 (when I fall asleep)

F             Am             G                F     C     Em  F
 I'd like to make myself believe 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
