																				Fixed some errors in first tabber's version. There's a couple quick transitions at the 
of verses and choruses that I left out. Let me know if there's any problems.

Capo on the 3rd fret

G-C-F--(2x)



    

G                          C

You would not believe your eyes
F                            G                     C      F

If ten million fireflies lit up the world as i fell asleep
G                      C

'Cause they'd fill the open air
F

and leave teardrops everywhere
G              C                  F

you'd think me rude but I'd just stand and stare


Chorus:
F              C         G

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

that planet Earth turns slowly
        F               C            F      G      Am
Its hard to say that I'd rather stay awake when I'm asleep
F                   C          D

'Cause everything is never as it seems


(Same chords as verse)
'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

F              Am         G

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

that planet Earth turns slowly
        F               C            F      G      Am
Its hard to say that I'd rather stay awake when I'm asleep
F                   C             G

'Cause everything is never as it seems
           F

When i fall asleep

G-C-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)
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


F              Am         G

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

that planet Earth turns slowly
        F               C            F      G      Am
Its hard to say that I'd rather stay awake when I'm asleep
F                   C             D

'Cause everything is never as it seems
           F

When i fall asleep

F              Am         G

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

that planet Earth turns slowly
        F               C            F      G      Am
Its hard to say that I'd rather stay awake when I'm asleep
F                   C             G

'Cause everything is never as it seems
           F

When i fall asleep

F              Am         G

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

that planet Earth turns slowly
        F               C            F      G      Am
Its hard to say that I'd rather stay awake when I'm asleep
F                   C                 G

Because my dreams are bursting at the seams...

You would not believe your eyes
If ten million fireflies
Lit up the world as I fell asleep

'Cause they fill the open air
And leave teardrops everywhere
You'd think me rude but I would just stand 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

'Cause I'd get a thousand hugs
From ten thousand lightning bugs
As they tried to teach me how to dance

A foxtrot above my head
A sock hop beneath my bed
A disco ball is just hanging by a thread (thread, 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 (said farewell)

But I'll know where several are
If my dreams get real bizarre
'Cause I saved a few and I keep them in a jar (jar, 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
'Cause everything is never as it seems (when I fall asleep)

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)

(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)
