Choir Lyrics - Home Practice!

Here are the lyrics for the Choir's next song, Fireflies by Owl City. 

In preparation for the Queensland Catholic Schools Music Festival on Friday August 16, it is important that students learn and practice the lyrics in their own time, as well as during Choir rehearsals. We want to look and sound confident when we perform! So, practice makes improvement!

Fireflies

You would not believe your eyes

If 10 million fireflies
Lit up the world as I fell asleep
Cause they'd fill the open air
Leave tear drops 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 10 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

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

BRIDGE
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 10 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

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
