"Fireflies" is a song by Owl City. The song gained worldwide success in late 2009 and early 2010.[1]

Mike, Alex, Christian, Nick and Joey, Cimorelli's five brothers, covered the song, but it also features autotune and harmonies by Lisa. Lisa put this together because of many questions from fans asking whether or not their brothers sang also.[2] It was uploaded to Lisa's YouTube channel on May 19, 2010.

Lisa included a link to download the song, which is here.

Lyrics

Alex:
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 teardrops everywhere
You'd think me rude
But I would just stand and stare

Mike:
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

Christian:
'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

Mike:
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

Alex:
When I fall asleep

Joey:
Leave my door open just a crack (Alex: Please take me away from here)
'Cause I feel like such an insomniac (Alex: Please take me away from here)
Why do I tire of counting sheep (Alex: Please take me away from here)
When I'm far too tired to fall asleep

Nick:
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 keep a few in a jar

Mike:
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

Alex:
When I fall asleep

Mike:
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

Alex:
When I fall asleep

Mike:
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 what it seem

  2. So this video is a little different! We get asked a lot about whether or not our brothers can sing, so I thought I'd put something together to show y'all their voices :)
