Owl City

On the Wing – Owl City

Breathe and I’ll carry you away into the velvet sky
And we’ll stir the stars around
And watch them fall away into the Hudson Bay
And plummet out of sight and sound
The open summer breeze will sweep you through the hills
Where I live in the alpine heights
Below the Northern Lights, I spend my coldest nights
Alone, awake and thinking of…the weekend we were in love

Home among these mountain tops can be so awfully dull
A thousand miles from the tide
But photos on the walls of New York shopping malls
Distract me so I stay inside
I wish the rockets stayed over the promenade
Cuz I would make a hook and eye
And fish them from the sky, my darling, she and I
We’re hanging on so take us high
To sing the world goodbye…

I am floating away
Lost in a silent ballet
I’m dreaming you’re out in the blue and I am right beside you
Awake to take in the view
Late nights and early parades
Still photos and noisy arcades
My darling, we’re both on the wing, look down and keep on singing!
And we can go anywhere

Are you there?
Are you there, or are you just a decoy dream in my head?
Am I home or am I simply tumbling all alone?

I am floating away
Lost in a silent ballet
I’m dreaming you’re out in the blue and I am right beside you
Awake to take in the view
Late nights and early parades
Still photos and noisy arcades
My darling, we’re both on the wing, look down and keep on singing!
And we can go anywhere

Butterfly Wings – Owl City

If i was a raindrop
would you be my thunderstorm?
It’s cold so surround me
With rain clouds to keep me warm
I feel like I’m falling
So darling don’t let me go
The thought is appalling but should I slip away
Into the stormy sea will you remember me?

Asleep in a warm cocoon
We dream of lovely things
We’re both gonna wake up soon
So we hope that tomorrow brings
Us our butterfly wings

If i was a grain of sand
Would you be Miami Beach
So dusty with starlight
Close your eyes and cuddle close to me
I’ll try not to wake you
Or make a sound while you’re dozing off
But in the night should the high tides sweep me away from you
Tell me again my dear will you be waiting here?

Whenever we leave the ground
And take to the sky
I’ll smile as I’m gazing down
Cause I’ve always wonder why we won’t need feathers to fly

Dreams Don’t Turn to Dust – Owl City

[Verse 1]
Splash down in the silver screen
Into a deep dramatic scene
I swim through the theater
Or maybe I’m just a dreamer
Like a kite in the bright midday
Wonder stole my breath away
Shy sonata for Mercury
The stars always sing so pretty

[Chorus:]
This picnic will soon depart
Real life, I’m sad to see you go
I’ll miss you with all my heart
But I’d rather be alone
‘Cause I couldn’t live without
Sunsets that dazzle in the dusk
So I’ll drag the anchor up
And rest assured, ’cause dreams don’t turn to dust

Dreams don’t turn to dust!

[Verse 2]
I made for the countryside
And my eyes never grew so wide
Apple raspberry river blue
I don’t wanna leave without you
In the sound I gladly drowned
Into the emerald underground
I rub my eyes ’cause it’s hard to see
Surrounded by all this beauty

[Chorus]

[Bridge:]
(I’m sad to see you go)
(But I’d rather be alone)

When tiger eyes begin making you blush
And when diamonds boast that they can’t be crushed
Let ’em go, ’cause dreams don’t turn to dust

[Chorus]

Dreams don’t turn to dust!
Dreams don’t turn to dust!
And rest assured, ’cause dreams don’t turn to dust!

Wolf Bite – Owl City

[VERSE 1]

It’s another bad dream
Poison in my blood stream
I’m dying but i can’t scream
Will you show me the way ?

It’s another wolf bite
Howlin’ in the moonlight
I wanna get my life right !
Will you show me the way?
Tonight

[PRE-Chorus]
Will you be there ?
Toni-i-ight, toni-i-ight, i-ight
Ohwoho

[Chorus]
If the darkness falls, and my angel calls
In my despair
Will you be there ?
In the darkest night
When I need your light
Will you show me the way ?
If my time runs out
And the sky falls down
Despite my fear
Will you appear ?
If the world goes blind
And i lose my mind
Will you show me the way ?
Tonight

[POST-Chorus]
Will you show me the way, tonight ?
Will you show me the way, tonight ?

[VERSE 2]
It’s another nightmare
I swear there’s something out there
So save me cause i’m so scared
Will you show me the way ?

It’s another warewolf
All dressed up in sheep’s wool
And changing when the moon’s full
Will you show me the way ?

[Chorus x2]
If the darkness falls, and my angel calls
In my despair
Will you be there ?
In the darkest night
When I need your light
Will you show me the way ?
If my time runs out
And the sky falls down
Despite my fear
Will you appear?
If the world goes blind
And i lose my mind
Will you show me the way ?
Tonight

[OUTRO]
In my despair
Will you be there ?
Tonight
