Fireflies

Mike Tompkins

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 try to teach me how to dance


A fox trot above my head
A sock hop beneath my bed
A 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
(They said farewell)


But I'll know where several are
If my dreams get real bizarre
Cause I'd save a few
And I'd 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
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 seems
