    I really love this song, its so f*** awesome lol. Its the kind of song that brings all sorts of good memories and makes you smile while you listen to it. I hope you guys like it and if you dont, dont say it! Otherwise you'll hurt my feelings, you have been warned. icon_redface.gif

    Owl City - Fireflies from Ian Cook on Vimeo.


    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 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 get a thousand hugs,
    From ten thousand lightning bugs.
    As they try to teach me how to dance,
    A foxtrot above my head,
    A sockhop 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. 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 (said farewell),
    But I 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,
    '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 seams.

    I downloaded this one a few weeks ago when it was #1 on itunes and I'm glad i did. I downloaded a few more from the album but they all have the same kind of sound so it's kind of repetitive. Their song "hello seattle" was recently used in a tv show I watched....i forget which one.

    That's EXACTLY what I thought!! It's a good sound, though... I'll put it on my playlist. Thanks, Charlitos.

    Agree with GwgTrunks. Try the Postal Service. Or Death Cab for Cutie. Or Snow Patrol.

    The alt rock station here in L.A. that's been playing it for weeks now report there's a real love-it-or-hate-it response to the song.
