Owl City – Fireflies – ASL Song


…music
SYNTH (pantomime) You would not believe your eyes
AMAZING! SEE If ten million fireflies
TEN MILLION LIGHT FLIES Lit up the world as I fell asleep
I SLEEP, WORLD LIGHT-UP ‘Cause they’d fill the open air
FLIES [NUMEROUS] And leave teardrops everywhere
TEAR DROPS [ALL-AROUND] You’d think me rude
I MAYBE RUDE But I would just stand and stare
I STAND, LOOK-AROUND I’d like to make myself believe
I REALLY WANT BELIEVE That planet Earth turns slowly
WORLD ROTATE SLOW It’s hard to say that I’d rather stay
I PREFER SLEEP, DREAM, Awake when I’m asleep
NOT AWAKE ‘Cause everything is never as it seems
WHY? VARIETY ‘Cause I’d get a thousand hugs
I RECEIVE MANY HUG From ten thousand lightning bugs
FROM TEN THOUSAND LIGHT FLIES As they tried to teach me how to dance
THEY TEACH-ME HOW DANCE A foxtrot above my head
[DANCING ABOVE] A sock hop beneath my bed
BED [DANCING BELOW] A disco ball is just hanging by a thread
LIGHT BALL [HANG THIN LINE] I’d like to make myself believe
I REALLY WANT BELIEVE That planet Earth turns slowly
WORLD ROTATE SLOW It’s hard to say that I’d rather stay
I PREFER SLEEP, DREAM, Awake when I’m asleep
NOT AWAKE ‘Cause everything is never as it seems
WHY? VARIETY (When I fall asleep) Leave my door open just a crack
MY DOOR [OPEN SLIGHTLY] (Please take me away from here) ‘Cause I feel like such an insomniac
I FEEL RESTLESS (Please take me away from here) Why do I tire of counting sheep
SHEEP COUNT 1-2-3 BORING (Please take me away from here) When I’m far too tired to fall asleep
I TIRED EXCESSIVE, CANT SLEEP To ten million fireflies
TEN MILLION LIGHT FLIES I’m weird ’cause I hate goodbyes
[LOOK-AT-ME] THINK HE WEIRD I got misty eyes as they said farewell
WHY? THEY LEAVE, I CRY But I’ll know where several are
BUT IF MY DREAMS STRANGE If my dreams get real bizarre
I CAN FIND SEVERAL ‘Cause I saved a few and I keep them in a jar
{JAR} I CATCH, KEEP I’d like to make myself believe
I REALLY WANT BELIEVE That planet Earth turns slowly
WORLD ROTATE SLOW It’s hard to say that I’d rather stay
I PREFER SLEEP, DREAM, Awake when I’m asleep
NOT AWAKE ‘Cause everything is never as it seems
WHY? VARIETY I’d like to make myself believe
I REALLY WANT BELIEVE That planet Earth turns slowly
WORLD ROTATE SLOW It’s hard to say that I’d rather stay
I PREFER SLEEP, DREAM, Awake when I’m asleep
NOT AWAKE ‘Cause everything is never as it seems
WHY? VARIETY I’d like to make myself believe
I REALLY WANT BELIEVE That planet Earth turns slowly
WORLD ROTATE SLOW It’s hard to say that I’d rather stay
I PREFER SLEEP, DREAM, Awake when I’m asleep
NOT AWAKE Because my dreams are bursting at the seams
MY DREAMS [BURSTING THROUGH]
