Music Pastime: Fireflies By Owl City

The first time my ears got caught of Fireflies by Owl City was while watching a Swedish tv show called Körslaget [Season 4].

"Körslaget is an entertainment TV program on TV4 created by Caroline af Ugglas, Heinz Liljedahl and Patrik Hambraeus which later developed by Friday TV AB for the American show Clash of the Choirs."

Team Mojje delivered the song that night. I got goosebumps while listening to the melody which led me to inquiring about the title from my boyfriend.

[Fireflies by Owl City lyrics]
    You Would Not Believe Your Eyes
    If Ten Million Fireflies
    Light 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 Tried To Teach Me How To Dance
    A Foxtrot Above My head
    A Sockhop 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
    But I'll Know Where Several Are
    If My Dreams Get Real Bizzare
    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 I'd Rather Stay Awake When I'm Asleep
    Because My Dreams Are Bursting At The Seams

Enjoy Fireflies everyone!
