You would not believe your eyes

if ten million fireflies

lit up the world as I fell asleep.

They’d fill the open air

and leave teardrops everywhere;

you might think me rude

but I would just stand there

and stare.

I’d like to make myself believe that Planet Earth turns slowly.

It’s hard to say that I’d rather stay awake when I’m asleep,

’cause everything is never as it seems…

I’d get a thousand hugs

from ten thousand lightning bugs

as they’d try to teach me how to dance

a foxtrot above my head,

a sockhop beneath my bed;

the disco ball is just hanging by a thread.

I’d like to make myself believe that Planet Earth turns slowly.

It’s hard to say that I’d rather stay awake when I’m asleep,

’cause everything is never as it seems

when I fall asleep.

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 I know where several are

if my dreams get real bizarre,

’cause I saved a few and I keep them in a jar.

I’d like to make myself believe that Planet Earth turns slowly.

It’s hard to say that I’d rather stay awake when I’m asleep,

because my dreams are bursting at the seams.

-Owl City, “Fireflies”
