Lied van de week : week 7 - 2010

Fireflies - Owl City


Sommige nummers zijn niet écht super of fantastisch, maar slagen er toch in om je aandacht telkens opnieuw vast te houden en je geleidelijk te overtuigen hoe onweerstaanbaar ze eigenlijk toch wel zijn. Dat is precies wat Owl City (het project van Adam Toung) doet met Fireflies, waar ook nog eens een opmerkelijke videoclip bijhoort. Wie doorklikt naar zijn site, krijgt een ander nummer te horen dat heel herkenbaar lijkt op deze single, maar toch zal je moeten toegeven dat dit nummer zich intussen meester heeft gemaakt van je oren...

Je vindt het nummer op Ocean eyes, het debuutalbum, dat je hier kan kopen.

Lyrics :

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

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 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
When I fall asleep

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 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
When I fall asleep

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

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
Because my dreams are bursting at the seams
