On the Wing
Owl City Lyrics


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
(The weekend we were in love)
Home among these mountain tops can be so awfully dull
A thousand miles from the tide
Put photos on the walls of New York shopping malls
Distract me so I stay inside
I wish the rocket stayed over the promenade 'cause I would make a hook
And I can 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)
(Are you there)
(Are you there)
Are you there
(Are you there)
(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
(Floating away)
Lost in a silent ballet
(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
(Early parades)
Still photos and noisy arcades
(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)
(Are you there)
(Are you there)
Are you there
(Are you there)
(Are you there)
(Are you there)

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 mountaintops
Can be so awfully dull
A thousand miles from the tide
But photos on the walls
Of New York shopping malls
Distract me so that I stay inside
I wish the rocket stayed
Over the promenade
Cuz I would make a hook and I
Would 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 in 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?
Are you there?
Are you there?
Are you there?
Are you there?
Are you there?
Or are you just a decoy dream?
In my head?
Am I home, or am I simply tumbling out 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 an early parades
Still photos in 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?
Are you there?
Are you there?
Are you there?
Are you there?
Are you there?
Are you there?
Are you there?
Are you there?

2020 anyone?!

Always been here, just using my escape from reality to get away from this place as usual. After all, "reality is a lovely place, but I wouldn't want to live there" and "real life, I'm sad to see you go; I'll miss you with all my heart, but I'd rather be alone".

Owl City gives me unparalleled nostalgia. I always come back, no matter how long I've been away. It's hard to pick but Maybe I'm Dreaming is my favorite album because my favorite song is West Coast Friendship.

I OFFER YOU THIS

i remember listening to this album while playing gears of war with my best buds. talk about nostalgia.

Justanotherprimate

Felicia Teo

YES! WEST COAST FRIENDSHIP IS THE BEST!!!
