Fireflies Lyrics - Owl City

Review The Song (5)



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 tear drops 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
The 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
(Ha-ha)

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, 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)
[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
Because my dreams are bursting at the seams

I love this song | Reviewer: Rowan | 2/22/13

I love this song it reminds me of when I was a little girl, in the summer time I would always run around outside and catch fireflies, haha, actually now that I think about it sometimes I still catch fireflies in the summer :)

AWESOME!!!! | Reviewer: Anonymous | 12/7/11

omg this is my favorite song ever !!!!! It reminds me of the summer catching fireflis with my best friends! A boy and a girl (yes I'm a girl with a BFF that's a boy who I have a major crush on) This song really brings that memory back, and really, really make me miss them I miss you Keara and Aiden...

An awesome song | Reviewer: Anonymous | 7/14/10

This song is totally awesome. It is my number 1 song choice. If I could I would listen to it all the time! My Best friend introduced this song to me and I can;t stop thinking about. Brings back sweet memories.

a nice song | Reviewer: Peter | 5/2/10

Well my explanation is.... His dreams are much sweeter than reality so he wants to keep awake when he's asleep and feel the happiness of dreams... R insomnia thakar karone shey depressed tai shey nijeke bujhate chaay je planet earth turns slowly (time passes by slowly). Therefore, during sleeping he doesn't miss so many things.

Sweet innocence | Reviewer: Jenn | 11/23/09

This song reminds me of my childhood. Running around from green flash to green flash. I always felt too guilty keeping them for long, but I really loved watching them. I have an image of sitting under a weeping willow tree by a serene pond, the frogs and crickets singing while the fireflies danced around me. True happiness and innocence. ^_^ This song brings that back.
