Owl City
"
Capo on the 3rd fret

I tabbed this as best as I could, 
and I'm sure these are the right Acoustic chords.
Great song!
=)

C                          G
You would not believe your eyes
Am              F             C                     G      Am, F,
If ten million fireflies lit up the world as i fell asleep
C                      G
'Cause they'd fill the open air 
Am                  F    
and leave teardrops everywhere
C              G                  Am       F
you'd think me rude but I'd just stand and stare


Chorus:
Am               C         G
I'd like to make myself believe
            Am     C     G    F
that planet Earth turns slowly
        Am               G            C      G      Am
Its hard to say that I'd rather stay awake when I'm asleep
Am                   C          D(still unsure about last chord!)
'Cause everything is never as it seems


(Same chords as verse)
'Cause id 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

Am               C         G
I'd like to make myself believe
            Am     C     G    F
that planet Earth turns slowly
        Am               G            C      G      Am
Its hard to say that I'd rather stay awake when I'm asleep
Am                   C          D(still unsure about last chord!)
'Cause everything is never as it seems

C                   G       
When i fall asleep leave my door open just a crack
Am              F
(please take me away from here)
C                          G
'Cause i feel like such an insomniac
Am                  F
(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 ill know where several are
if my dreams get real bizarre
'cause i saved a few and i keep them in a jar

Chorus (x2)

Am               C         G
I'd like to make myself believe
            Am     C     G    F
that planet Earth turns slowly
        Am               G            C      G      Am
Its hard to say that I'd rather stay awake when I'm asleep
Am                   C          D(still unsure about last chord!)
'Cause everything is never as it seems
