The Real World
Owl City Lyrics


I saw the autumn leaves peel up off the street,
Take wing on the balmy breeze and sweep you off your feet.
And you blushed as they scooped you up on sugar maple wings,
To gaze down on the city below, ablaze with wondrous things.
Downy feathers kiss your face and flutter everywhere.
Reality is a lovely place but I wouldn't want to live there.
I wouldn't wanna live there.

Weighed down by heavy lids and lunar lullabies,
I knew you were wide awake because you smile with your eyes.
Downy feathers kiss your face and flutter everywhere.
Reality is a lovely place but I wouldn't want to live there.
From the green belt balcony, the wildfires look so pretty.
Ponderosa canopy, I'd never leave if it were up to me.
To the ruby redwood tree, and to the velvet climbing ivy:
Painted all mahogany, I'd never leave if it were up to me.

With a starry brush, paint the dusk Venetian blue,
Because in the evening hush, you'll never believe the view.
And when the leaves return and their whisperings fill the night,
They'll freeze and burn where fire and ice collide.
Where fire and ice collide.

Can you feel a silk embrace in the satin air?
If we dissolve without a trace, will the real world even care?
Downy feathers kiss your face and flutter everywhere.
Reality is a lovely place but I wouldn't want to live there.
I wouldn't want to live there.

I saw the autumn leaves peel up off the street,
Take wing on the balmy breeze and sweep you off your feet

I saw the autumn leaves
Peel up off the street
Take wing on the balmy breeze
And sweep you off your feet
And you blushed as they scooped you up
On sugar maple wings
To gaze down on the city below
Ablaze with wondrous things

Downy feathers kiss your face
And flutter everywhere
Reality is a lovely place
But I wouldn't want to live there
I wouldn't want to live there

Weighed down by heavy lids
And lunar lullabies
I knew you were wide awake
'Cause you smile with your eyes

Downy feathers kiss your face
And flutter everywhere
Reality is a lovely place
But I wouldn't want to live there

From the green belt balcony
The wildfires look so pretty
Under lonesome canopy
I'd never leave if it were up to me
To the ruby redwood tree
And to the velvet climbing ivy
Painted all mahogany
I'd never leave if it were up to me
(If it were up to me)

With a starry brush
Paint the dusk venetian blue
'Cause in the evening hush
You'll never believe the view
And when the leaves return
And their whisperings fill the night
They'll freeze and burn
Where fire and ice collide
Where fire and ice collide

Can you feel a silk embrace
In the satin air?
If we dissolve without a trace
Would the real world even care?
Downy feathers kiss your face
And flutter everywhere
Reality is a lovely place
But I wouldn't want to live there
I wouldn't want to live there

I saw the autumn leaves
Peel up off the street
Take wing on the balmy breeze
And sweep you off your feet


Thank you, description... :D

Maybe just because it's inevitable and pretending it isn't will just make you miserable in the end. The real world really is a lovely place sometimes.
