Dreaming of Fireflies

A WordPress.com weblog

Electropop Lullabye October 29, 2009

I heard a song called Fireflies last night that made me laugh (partly because it was sung in a slightly robotic voice, apparently part of a genre called “electropop”). Since this blog is called Dreaming of Fireflies, I couldn’t not post it…

Fireflies by Owl City

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 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
When I fall asleep

 

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 just hanging by a thread

 

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’m weird cause I hate goodbyes
I got misty eyes as they 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

 

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
