And I keep them in a jar.

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'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 lightening bugs
As they tried to teach me how to dance.
A foxtrot above my head, a sock-hop beneath my bed, The disco ball is just hanging by a thread.

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 bizarre
Cause I saved a few, And I keep them in a jar.
