"Fireflies" by Owl City, performed in sign language by Stephen Torrence. My first release of December Song Week. Keep an eye out for more! Lyrics/gloss below, captions on the way.

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]

[chorus]




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

[chorus x3]

Because my dreams are bursting at the seams
MY DREAMS [BURSTING THROUGH]
