Owl City Fireflies

In 2009 Adam Young launch the project Owl City.  Adam Young described the song as “a little song about bugs and not being able to fall asleep at night. The song is built around a “bleepy” synthline and includes lyrics about insomnia, fireflies and summer.

I like this kind of music and melody because it remind me the melody and the style of music I like in my childhood. Jean Michel Jarre, Vangelis and Kraft Werk was pioneer of electronic music. It is like today electronic music still exists. I prefer with kind melody and colorfull music. For example I discovered recently Family Force 5 with This is my Year  This kind of music could be run in the end of 70s and today it is fashionable again.

 

 

[Verse 1]
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

[Hook]
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

[Verse 2]
‘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
The disco ball is just hanging by a thread

[Hook]
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 (when I fall asleep)
