Beautiful Times
Owl City Lyrics


A spark soaring down through the pouring rain
And restoring life to the lighthouse
A slow motion wave on the ocean
Stirs my emotion up like like a rain cloud

When did the sky turn black?
And when will the light come back?

A cab driver turned to skydiver
Then to survivor,
Dying to breakdown
A blood brother, surrogate mother,
Hugging each other, crying their eyes out

When did the sky turn black?
And when will the light come back?

I'm ecstatic like a drug addict
Locked in the attic
Strung out and spellbound

I fought all through the night
Oh, oh, but I made it alive
The sun's starting to rise
Oh, oh, these are beautiful times
This fight of my life is so hard,
So hard, so hard
But I'm gonna survive
Oh, oh, these are beautiful times

A bad feeling burned through the ceiling
Leaving my healing heart with a new scar
A dead fire rose and rose higher
Like a vampire, up from the graveyard

When did the sky turn black?
And when will the light come back?

We all suffer but we recover
Just to discover life where we all are

I fought all through the night
Oh, oh, but I made it alive
The sun's starting to rise
Oh, oh, these are beautiful times
This fight of my life is so hard,
So hard, so hard
But I'm gonna survive
Oh, oh, these are beautiful times

This fight of my life is so hard,
So hard, so hard
But I'm gonna survive
Oh, oh, these are beautiful times

My heart's burning bad
And it's turning black
But I'm learning how to be stronger
And sincerely, I love you dearly
Oh, but I'm clearly destined to wonder

But I'm learning how to be stronger
And sincerely, I love you dearly
Oh, but I'm clearly destined to wander

Does anyone else feel like this music video a kind of sequel to the Fireflies video? In Fireflies, it was the toys in Adam's room that came to life, but now that he's grown up he's passing on that same magic to the boy instead.

@Gabriel M. Actually, I think it was his grandfather. I remember him talking about this song in the "Mobile Orchestra" commentary tracks. He went through his mother's pain as a young girl seeing her father just walk out on her, leaving her without a father figure. This later shows up in "The 5th of July" when he references his grandparents making it to the hospital. He mentions Bob and Janice, his paternal grandparents, and Rachel, his maternal grandmother. But his maternal grandfather is not mentioned.

@GalaxyLPSTV It would make sense because when he wrote “This isn’t the end” it was about his dad committing suicide

Gabriel M.

I see what you mean
