1.††††† 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.

 

F††††††††††††† †††††Am††††† ††††††††††††G†††††††††††††††††††††† F††† ††C††††† Em F

††† I'd like to make myself believe that planet Earth turns slowly,

††††††† F†††††††††† †††††††††††††††C††††††† †††††††††††F†† †††††††††††††G††††† Am

itís hard to say that I'd rather stay awake when I'm asleep,

†††††††††††† F†††††††††††††††††† C†††††††† ††††††D

'cause everything is never as it seems.

2. ††††'Cause Iíd 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.

 

F†††††††††††††††††† Am†††††††††††††††††† G†††††††††††††††††††††† F†††††† C††††† Em F

††† 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).

††††††††††††††††††† C††††††††††††††††††††††††† F††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† G

††† Why do I tire of counting sheep (please take me away from here),

††††††††††††††††††††† †††††††††C††††††††††††††††††† F

††† when I'm far too tired to fall asleep. - - -

4.††††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 Iíll know where several are,††††††† if my dreams get real bizarre,

†††††††††† ††††G††††††††††††††††††††††††† C†††††††††††††††††††††††† F
