Lyrics of the day


You would not believe your eyes
If ten million fireflies
Lit up the world as I fell asleep
Cause they'd fill the open air
And leave tear drops everywhere
You'd think me rude
But I would just stand and stare

Chorus : 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 fox trot 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 kept them in a jar



  1. Awww....10 million fireflies will be romantic as hell buh my hubby has declared WWIII on bugs..that guy hates bugs..hehe

  2. Oh how I love this song.

  3. I like this..


  4. Here come real stars to fill the upper skies,
    And here on earth come emulating flies,
    That though they never equal stars in size,
    (And they were never really stars at heart)
    Achieve at times a very star-like start.
    Only, of course, they can't sustain the part.

    How's you Amaka #grab my chair and chopping pop corn# I love Saturday

    1. Yaay Godwin remain popcorn for me o... My favourite snack. You offend me, hand me a bowl of popcorn and you're forgiven *smiles* #doctorbobby
