you would not believe your eyes
if ten million fireflies lit up the world as i fell asleep
'Cause they'd fill the open air
and leave teardrops everywhere
you'd think me rude but I'd just stand and stare

I'd like to make myself believe
that planet Earth turns slowly
Its hard to say that I'd rather stay awake when I'm asleep
'Cause everything is never as it seems

'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

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 ill know where several are
if my dreams get real bizarre
'cause i saved a few and i keep them in a jar

Chorus (x2)

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 my dreams are bursting at the seams
I like this song a lot. I first head it on 98.7, and liked it. It's easy on the ears. Plus, as soon as I heard the word "insomniac", I had to get it LOL. Its been on repeat for a while. I tend to do that with songs that I really enjoy; I put it on repeat, then just let it play. Like I said, its easy on the ears. Kind of reminds me of "Kids" by MGMT, but less bass. ...Like a mix Coraline and MGMT without the bass and scariness LOL. I like the lyrics too. I love how the depicted the dancing scene with the foxtrot and sock hop and stuff. Very imagivite and creative lyrics. Plus its not one of those lyrics to dissect. Its just more to enjoy lol
