You would not believe your eyes
Lit up the world as I fell asleep
'Cause they fill the open air
You'd think me rude but I would just stand and stare
I'd like to make myself believe that planet earth turns slowly
'Cause everything is never as it seems
'Cause I'd get a thousand hugs
As they tried to teach me how to dance
A foxtrot above my head
A disco ball is just hanging by a thread (thread, thread)
I'd like to make myself believe that planet earth turns slowly
'Cause everything is never as it seems (when I fall asleep)
Leave my door open just a crack
'Cause I feel like such an insomniac
Why do I tire of counting sheep
When I'm far too tired to fall asleep
To ten million fireflies
I got misty eyes as they said farewell (said farewell)
But I'll know where several are
'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
'Cause everything is never as it seems (when I fall asleep)
I'd like to make myself believe that planet earth turns slowly
'Cause everything is never as it seems (when I fall asleep)
(I'd like to make myself believe that planet earth turns slowly)
(Because my dreams are bursting at the seams)
