How To Play

A Bm G x3
 
A Bm D G
 
VERSE 1
 
A                Bm
  You would not believe your eyes
G
  If ten million fireflies
A             Bm               G
  Lit up the world as I fell asleep
A                         Bm
  'Cause they'd fill the open air
G
  And leave teardrops everywhere
A
You'd think me rude
      Bm                   G
But I would just stand and stare
 
CHORUS
G             D             A
  I'd like to make myself believe
            G     D     F#m G
That planet Earth turns slowly
                          D
It's hard to say that I'd rather stay
G          A     Bm
Awake when I'm asleep
      G              D           E
'Cause everything is never as it seems
 
VERSE 2
 
A                  Bm
  'Cause I'd get a thousand hugs
G
  From ten thousand lightning bugs
A                  Bm               G
  As they tried to teach me how to dance
A            Bm
  A foxtrot above my head
G
  A sock hop beneath my bed
  A             Bm                G
A disco ball is just hanging by a thread
 
 
CHORUS
 
G             D             A
  I'd like to make myself believe
            G     D     F#m G
That planet Earth turns slowly
                          D
It's hard to say that I'd rather stay
G          A     Bm
Awake when I'm asleep
      G              D           A
'Cause everything is never as it seems
              D
When I fall asleep
 
BRIDGE
 
A               Bm           G
  Leave my door open just a crack
 
(Please take me away from here)
A                    Bm             G
  'Cause I feel like such an insomniac
 
(Please take me away from here)
A          Bm               G
  Why do I tire of counting sheep
 
(Please take me away from here)
A                  Bm              G
  When I'm far too tired to fall asleep
 
VERSE 3
 
A                Bm
  To ten million fireflies
G
  I'm weird 'cause I hate goodbyes
A              Bm                G
  I got misty eyes as they said farewell
A                      Bm
  But I'll know where several are
G
  If my dreams get real bizarre
        A                Bm               G
'Cause I saved a few and I keep them in a jar
 
 
CHORUS
 
G             Bm            A
  I'd like to make myself believe
            G     D     F#m G
That planet Earth turns slowly
                          D
It's hard to say that I'd rather stay
G          A     Bm
Awake when I'm asleep
      G              D           Em
'Cause everything is never as it seems
 
When I fall asleep
 
 
G             Bm            A
  I'd like to make myself believe
            G     D     F#m G
That planet Earth turns slowly
                          D
It's hard to say that I'd rather stay
G          A     Bm
Awake when I'm asleep
      G              D           A
'Cause everything is never as it seems
                D
When I fall asleep
 
 
OUTRO
(single Strums)
                            A
I'd like to make myself believe
            Bm    D     F#m  G
That planet earth turns slowly
     G                     D
It's hard to say that I'd rather stay
  G        A      Bm
Awake when I'm asleep
  G                   D               A
Because my dreams are bursting at the seams
