Sunburn
Owl City Lyrics


So there we were, back home
From somewhere inside my head
Well bravely I fought off the monsters beneath her bed
Pillars of post-war books supported my frame of mind
While she memorized the pages that I tried to not hide behind
She took my hand in hers and whispered her love for me
The lantern died that night but we didn't need to see
Implying that she's the bees knees and I am the cats meow
It's funny how she recalls when I can't remember now
But when her smile came back
And I didn't feel half as horrible
She gave me a heart attack
Just because she looked so adorable
We both put our sunblock on
Laid on the beach and vowed that we'd live and we'd learn
Yeah, but she got a tan and I got a sunburn

I got a sunburn

So there we were out there
Unaware of where we'd been
We kicked off our flip-flops
And swung from the rooftops again
It's awkward but I'll confess she's all I can think about
And it's funny how I recall when she can't remember now

But when her smile came back
And I didn't feel half as horrible
She gave me a heart attack
Just because she looked so adorable
We both put our sunblock on
Laid on the beach and vowed that we'd live and we'd learn
Yeah, But she got a tan and I got a sunburn

Oh afterglow, look out below!
We'd left a trail of dust behind
As we parted ways, she held my gaze,
And left an imprint on my mind
I tried not to cry as we said goodbye
And hung the clouds above my town
But I shed a tear when she disappeared
'Cause now I'm a stranger on the ground

But when her smile came back
And I didn't feel half as horrible
She gave me a heart attack
We both put our sunblock on
Laid on the beach and vowed that we'd live and we'd learn
But she got a tan and I got a sunburn

She got a tan and I got a sunburn
Yeah, but she got a tan and I got a sunburn

So there we were, back home From somewhere inside my head

Well bravely I fought off the monsters beneath her bed

Pillars of post-war books supported my frame of mind

While she memorized the pages that I tried to not hide behind

She took my hand in hers and whispered her love for me

The lantern died that night but we didn't need to see

Implying that she's the bees knees and I am the cats meow

It's funny how she recalls when I can't remember now

But when her smile came back

And I didn't feel half as horrible

She gave me a heart attack

Just because she looked so adorable

We both put our sunblock on

Laid on the beach and vowed that we'd live and we'd learn

Yeah, but she got a tan and I got a sunburn

I got a sunburn

So there we were out there Unaware of where we'd been

We kicked off our flip-flops
And swung from the rooftops again

It's awkward but I'll confess she's all I can think about

And it's funny how I recall when she can't remember now

But when her smile came back

And I didn't feel half as horrible

She gave me a heart attack

Just because she looked so adorable

We both put our sunblock on

Laid on the beach and vowed that we'd live and we'd learn

Yeah, But she got a tan and I got a sunburn

Oh afterglow, look out below!

We'd left a trail of dust behind

As we parted ways, she held my gaze,

And left an imprint on my mind

I tried not to cry as we said goodbye

And hung the clouds above my town

But I shed a tear when she disappeared

'Cause now I'm a stranger on the ground

(But when her smile came back

And I didn't feel half as horrible

She gave me a heart attack)

We both put our sunblock on

Laid on the beach and vowed that we'd live and we'd learn

But she got a tan and I got a sunburn

She got a tan and I got a sunburn

Yeah, but she got a tan and I got a sunburn

Everyone's asking why Owl City is so underrated but I'd like to point out:
1. Fireflies
2. Good Time
3. When Can I See You Again
4. Vanilla Twilight
5. Shooting Star
6. We're the lucky ones, what does it matter if other people are missing out :)

@CatCactus I think what they mean is that it's annoying to see other artists whose songs are trash be extremely popular and famous while actual good songs are never heard by the majority of people. It doesn't seem fair. But life is rarely fair. ๐Ÿคช
