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 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 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 (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 (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 (jar, 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)

 

Imagery & Figurative Language:

What i ┬áthink of Owl City or Adam Youngs song is about his dreams and how its hard for him to sleep, what makes me belives hes talking about his dreams is when he talks about counting sheeps for example “Why do i tire of counting sheep?” but not only that quote but alot more in the song makes me feel like hes talking about his dreams

Tone & Attitude:

I think the tone of the song is happy because he dosen’t really talk about anything bad and all he really talks about our his dreams and how its hard to sleep the sound of the though is kind of loud like he’s yelling at some points

Style:

Like i said this song talks about his dreams and how its hard for him to fall asleep some of rhythm and repetition for example is repetition he talks about fireflies alot
