Meaning of lyrics for Fireflies
In this blog post, I will be talking about the meaning of the song lyrics of the “fireflies”. The
song is originally song by “Owl City”.
The song is its self is a world well known song. When Adam (the singer) was asked about
how he came up with the idea about the song, he said he thought of it whilst he was
sleeping. As a result of this, the main theme of the song is about dreaming and how
dreaming to a certain degree is greater than living in reality. This is shown clearly when he
said “I got misty eyes when they said fare well”. The meaning of this lyric is that he is very
upset about the idea of his own personal dreams ending.
Another meaning of the lyrics in the song is that the dreams that you have are precious and
something that you should keep precious and not taken into granted. This is illustrated in
the lyric were he says that he “keeps them in a jar”
The main meaning of the song is that you should always believe in your dreams and try to
treasure them all the time. Evidence of this is seen by the chorus and the amount of time is
repeated and in the different way it is heard in the song. The chorus of the song was;
“I like to make make myself believe
That planet earth turns
Slowly
Its hard to say I’d rather stay awake when I’m asleep
Cause everything is never as it seems
When I fall asleep”
To further reiterate the lyrics of the song and the importance of believing in your dreams,
the music video is child like almost like a fantasy.
