Lirik Fiji Water - Owl City

Got an email at 22
Told me I could be a star
On a plane for the first time
I couldn’t wait to start
Landed at JFK
Father Christmas picked me up
Checked in to a dream hotel and I thought
“There’s no such thing as luck”
I walked in to my interview
And I thought, “There’s no such thing as luck”

And oh, if I only knew then what I know now
I’d stand like a one-man band and I’d say
All this is new to me but
Here’s how it’s gonna be
And I’d say

“Hey, there is more to me than meets the eye
Let me be who I wanna be”
And I’d say
“Hey, I’m an oddity and that’s all right
Let me fly and follow my dreams”
Then I’d say
“Hey thanks for the weekend
A good time was had by all”
And I’d say
“Hey thanks for the weekend
I ain’t a smooth-talker but thanks for the Fiji Water”
Thanks for the Fiji Water

Dinner under a palm tree
I had so much on my mind
Amazed by the bright lights
I stayed up half the night
And boy I took a leap of faith
With nowhere else to go but up
I walked in to my interview
And I thought
“There’s no such thing as luck”

And oh, if I only knew then what I know now
I’d stand like a one man band and I’d say
All this is new to me, but here’s how it’s gonna be

And I’d say
“Hey, there is more to me than meets the eye
Let me be who I wanna be”
And I’d say
“Hey, I’m an oddity and that’s alright
Let me fly and follow my dreams”
And I’d say
“Hey, thanks for the weekend
A good time was had by all”
And I’d say
“Hey, thanks for the weekend
I ain’t a spin doctor but thanks for the offer
And by the way
Hey, thanks for the weekend
You know I had a ball”
And I’d say
“Hey, thanks for the weekend
I ain’t a smooth-talker but thanks for the Fiji Water”
Thanks for the Fiji Water

I laughed when I got back home and I thought
“There’s no such thing as luck”

Lirik The 5th of July - Owl City

My mom woke my dad up
And said, “It’s time to leave!”
So they jumped into the old Caprice
And tore off into the night
On the 4th of July
They flew through the darkness
Driving like Jehu
And they rolled into Ottumwah
Before the sun began to rise
On the 4th of July
And in walks Bob and Janice
Rachel’s on her way
To peek in through the window
Hoping to hear her grandson cry
On the 4th of July

My mother watched the fireworks
From her hospital bed
And after it was all over
She held me for the first time
On the 5th of July
I’ve got my mother’s brown eyes
And my dad’s quiet way
And Grandma Rachel’s love for music
The morning I arrived
On the 5th of July
Deep in Iowa country
In a Heavenly Hideaway
On the shores of Lake Rathbun
My folks brought me home
On the 5th of July

And that was when
Life began for me
And that was when
Life began for me

A teacher and a mechanic
Brought me into this world
They loved me with all their hearts
Since the day I opened my eyes
On the 5th of July

And that was when
Life began for me
And that was when
Life began for me

Lirik All My Friends - Owl City

It’s been this way from the start
It’s like they’re always trying to tear us apart
But we will stand strong, stand true
And everybody’s gonna watch what we do
And they’ll be awestruck saying aw shucks
They either got real good or they got real good luck

And I’d be lying if I said that I could take any more
‘Cause I’ve been on my own, trying like never before
And I was lying on the couch and there’s this knock on the door
And it’s like…

All my friends
Woah, come right in
Woah, all my friends
We can take it all back again
Woah, put your hands on in
And lemme hear you say
Oh yeah
Lemme hear you say yeah

Another day, another chance
We got our card and we’re going to the dance
We’re gonna stay strong, hold true
And everybody’s gonna watch what we do
And they’ll be awestruck, saying aw shucks
They either got real good or they got real good luck

And I’d be lying if I said that we could take any more
‘Cause we’re about to light a fire like never before
And if you’re lying on the couch and there’s a knock on the door
It’s like…

All my friends
Woah, come right in
Woah, all my friends
We can take it all back again
Woah, put your hands on in
And lemme hear you say
Oh yeah
All my friends
Woah, come right in
Woah, all my friends
We can take it all back again
Woah, put your hands on in
And lemme hear you say
Oh yeah
Lemme hear you say yeah

We’ll always be young at heart
And nothing’s ever gonna tear us apart
Because we stand strong, stand true
And everybody’s gonna watch what we do
And they’ll be awestruck saying aw shucks
They either got real good or you know what

All my friends
Woah, come right in
Woah, all my friends
We can take it all back again
Woah, put your hands on in
And lemme hear you say
Oh
All my friends
Woah, come right in
Woah, all my friends
We can take it all back again
Woah, put your hands on in
And lemme hear you say
Oh yeah
Lemme hear you say yeah

Lirik House Wren - Owl City

I’m a house wren, hunting for a house
I haven’t found one, I’m on the lookout
For a home to call my own
A private residence
Through the grapevine I heard an empty gourd
Is hangin’ up somewhere on some old lady’s porch
I’ll pack my bags and off I’ll go
To my new humble abode

I’m gonna sing at the top of my lungs
‘Cause it’s a beautiful day
I’m gonna spread my wings
‘Cause as far as I know
I am halfway home

I’m a house wren who needs a summer home
A country farmhouse or a quiet bungalow
Not too big, and not too small
First-rate real estate
I got my eyes peeled for a window box
An old tin can, a boot or a flower pot
I’ll pack my bags and off I’ll go
To my new humble abode

I’m gonna sing at the top of my lungs
‘Cause it’s a beautiful day
I’m gonna spread my wings
‘Cause as far as I know
I am halfway home

I’m a house wren still hunting for a house
But I got a song and a lot to sing about
I’ll pack my bags and off I’ll go
Because you know

I’m gonna sing at the top of my lungs
‘Cause it’s a beautiful day
I’m gonna spread my wings
I’m on top of the world
And it’s a beautiful thing
I’m gonna sing at the top of my lungs
‘Cause it’s a beautiful day
I’m gonna spread my wings
‘Cause as far as I know
I am halfway home

I am halfway home

Lirik Not All Heroes Wear Capes - Owl City
[Verse 1] He doesn’t fight crime or wear a cape
He doesn’t read minds or levitate
But every time my world needs saving
He’s my Superman
Some folks don’t believe in heroes
‘Cause they haven’t met my dad

[Verse 2] He loves his workshop and rock ‘n roll
He’s got a hot rod and a heart of gold
And you could say he’s a man of few words
But he talks a lot within
And even though’ I’m a little taller
I still look up to him

[Chorus] He built me a house in the arms of a tree
He taught me to drive and to fight and to dream
When he looks in my eyes, I hope he can see that
My dad’s a hero to me

[Verse 3] Rust ridden fenders and doors full of dings
Somehow he can fix about anything
I didn’t think he knew how to cry
Till our dog died that year
He doesn’t always say I love you
But I can hear him loud and clear

[Chorus] He built me a house in the arms of a tree
He taught me to drive and to fight and to dream
When he looks in my eyes, I hope he can see that
My dad’s a hero to me

[Outro] He built me a house in the arms of a tree
He taught me to drive and to fight and to dream
When he looks in my eyes, I hope he can see
My dad’s a hero to me
My dad’s a hero to me
My dad’s a hero to me

Lirik Montana - Owl City

A fifteen year old kid from St. Paul
Hopped on a train and headed west
Got a job at a St. Mary restaurant
Washing dishes and making friends
The years went by like the seasons
And they brought him a lifetime of joy
He bought ten or twelve acres of heaven
With a paradise vantage point
And he built a cabin at the foot of the mountains
That stole his heart when he was a boy

On North Fork Road, you’re almost home

Get lost in Montana
Where your heart can finally roam
Get lost in Montana
Where the mountains call you home
Get lost forever in Montana

His son worked hard in West Glacier
His daughter sold souvenirs
And he always went back to Polebridge
With his family every year
To his green tin roof in the Rockies
And his sky so full of stars
His spirit lives in these mountains
Where Montana first stole his heart

On North Fork Road, you’re almost home

Get lost in Montana
Where your heart can finally roam
Get lost in Montana
Where the mountains call you home
Get lost forever in Montana

Two words on a bumper sticker
Were all I needed to read
I found myself for the first time
When Montana enchanted me
So get lost in the Big Sky country
Where adventure calls your name
Every moment is worth more than diamonds
When you spend time in the treasure state
So get lost in the Big Sky country
And let your heart lead the way

Lirik Lucid Dreams - Owl City

I am a light sleeper
But I am a heavy dreamer
My imagination gives me wings
And I can go anywhere

And when I wander away
To some other place
I’m suddenly there
Way up in the air
Where passenger trains
Catch fire and fill the sky with flames
And that black rabbit of death
Wakes up in a breath
Of beautiful dreams
My heartache, it seems
So terribly vain
Where fire and diamonds fall like rain

Do you believe
In endless miracles?
Do you believe
In the impossible?
Do you believe
Sleep is a time machine?
Do you believe
In curiosity?
Do you believe
In what you cannot see?
Do you believe
Life is a lucid dream?

That’s how you study the stars
That’s how you study the stars
And that’s how you know them by heart
Life is a lucid dream

Such is the path of a dreamer
I find my way by moonlight
My imagination gives me wings
And I can go anywhere

And when I wander away
To some other place
I’m suddenly there
Way up in the air
Where passenger trains
Catch fire and fill the sky with flames
And that black rabbit of death
Wakes up in a breath
Of beautiful dreams
My heartache, it seems
So terribly vain
Where fire and diamonds fall like rain

Do you believe
In endless miracles?
Do you believe
In the impossible?
Do you believe
Sleep is a time machine?
Do you believe
In curiosity?
Do you believe
In what you cannot see?
Do you believe
Life is a lucid dream?

Well, that’s how you study the stars
That’s how you study the stars
And that’s how you know them by heart
Life is a lucid dream
Well, that’s how you study the stars
That’s how you study the stars
And that’s how you know them by heart
Life is a lucid dream

I am a light sleeper
But I am a heavy dreamer

Lirik Always - Owl City

When the road is long
And your strength is gone
Remember I am just a prayer away
When the way is hard
And you are faint of heart
Remember I am just a prayer away

Hold fast, I’ll guide you through the night
And fear not for I am by your side

Listen through the rain
And you can hear the angels say
Help is on the way
The moment you begin to pray
When the thunders roar
You don’t need to be afraid
I’ll lead you through the storm
So please remember when I say
I’m with you always

When you are worn out
And you are let down
Remember I am just a prayer away
When every door is locked
And you feel so lost
Remember I am just a prayer away

Hold fast, I’ll guide you through the night
And fear not for I am by your side

Listen through the rain
And you can hear the angels say
Help is on the way
The moment you begin to pray
When the thunders roar
You don’t need to be afraid
I’ll lead you through the storm
So please remember when I say
I’m with you always

Come and walk with me, yeah
Come and talk with me, yeah
Soar on eagles’ wings
Run and I’ll be there

Listen through the rain
And you can hear the angels say
Help is on the way
The moment you begin to pray
When the thunders roar
You don’t need to be afraid
I’ll lead you through the storm
So please remember when I say
I’m with you always
I’m with you always

Lirik Cloud Nine - Owl City
[Verse 1] Pull the moon down with a lasso
Make your ceiling full of stars glow
I can sneak in through the window
And I could say it but we both know
You got me floatin’ on cloud nine

[Chorus] Look up when the world gets you down
And you’re gonna get by
Hang in when the world counts you out
And you’re gonna be fine
Sometimes that’s life, some days nothing ever goes right
But when your hand is in mine
You got me floatin’ on cloud nine

[Verse 2] Meet the one who makes your heart stop
Find a diamond in a gift shop
Live a little, love a whole lot
And you’ll be shouting from the rooftop
You got me floatin’ on cloud nine

[Chorus] Look up when the world gets you down
And you’re gonna get by
Hang in when the world counts you out
And you’re gonna be fine
Sometimes that’s life, some days nothing ever goes right
But when your hand is in mine
You got me floatin’ on cloud nine

[Verse 3] Hey baby are we almost there yet?
And how much cooler could my life get?
Take my hand and take a deep breath
And we’ll ride off until the sunset

[Chorus] Look up when the world gets you down
And you’re gonna get by
Hang in when the world counts you out
And you’re gonna be fine
Sometimes that’s life, some days nothing ever goes right
But when your hand is in mine…
Look up when the world gets you down
And you’re gonna get by
Hang in when the world counts you out
And you’re gonna be fine
Sometimes that’s life, some days nothing ever goes right
But if your hand is in mine
I’ll be floatin’ on cloud nine
For the rest of my life
I’ll be floatin’ on cloud nine
For the rest of my life

Lirik Winners Never Quit - Owl City

I’ve had some bummer days
But I ain’t lookin’ back
I’ve made a few mistakes
But I’m on the right track

I got somewhere to be
Gotta hurry so I’ll make
My date with destiny
‘Cause I don’t wanna be late
Here we go

I might take my time
‘Cause I find the fable had it right:
Slow and steady wins the race
And I might lag behind
But I swear I’ll cross the finish line
Movin’ at a steady pace

I’ll give it all I’ve got
I don’t have a lot
But I know a little goes a long way

The truth is hard to face
But I can take a hit
I’ve lost in many ways
But a winner don’t quit
My head is in the game
And the move is mine to make
But I am not afraid
‘Cause I’ll fight the good fight

I got somewhere to be
Gotta hurry so I’ll make
My date with destiny
‘Cause I don’t wanna be late
Here we go

I might take my time
‘Cause I find the fable had it right:
Slow and steady wins the race
And I might lag behind
But I swear I’l cross the finish line
Movin’ at a steady pace

I’ll give it all I’ve got
I don’t have a lot
But I know a little goes a long…
I’ll give it all I’ve got
I don’t have a lot
But I know a little goes a long way

I got somewhere to be
Gotta hurry so I’ll make
My date with destiny
‘Cause I don’t wanna be late

Lirik Madeline Island - Owl City

We bought a tent and some sleeping bags
And we jumped in the truck
North bound on I-35
Before the sun came up

We stopped for lunch in Canal Park
Passing through Duluth
Rolled into Bayfield, Wisconsin
And there she was
Madeline Island

We left our cares on the mainland
Boarded a ferry boat
We saw La Pointe for the first time
And we felt right at home

Drove out to Big Bay State Park
Picked out our campsite
We settled in underneath the stars
And there we were

Out there in the great Lake Superior
Right across the bay
We sat back, put our feet up and there we were
Half a world away

Where the waves turned the cliffs into sea caves
With every passing day
It was all a blur, but there we were
On Madeline Island
Madeline Island

We left our shadows on the lake shore
We soaked up all the sights
About drowned in a downpour
But for the northern lights

We shot the breeze under pine trees
And sat around the fire
We hit the hay beneath the Milky Way
And there we were

Out there in the great Lake Superior
Right across the bay
We sat back, put our feet up and there we were
Half a world away

Where the waves turned the cliffs into sea caves
With every passing day
It was all a blur, but there we were
On Madeline Island

Out there in the great Lake Superior
Right across the bay
We sat back, put our feet up and there we were
Half a world away

Where the waves turned the cliffs into sea caves
With every passing day
It was all a blur, but there we were
On Madeline Island
Madeline Island
There we were on Madeline Island

We made a memory
That will always last
But we went on that trip
Just the three and Max

Lirik Be Brave - Owl City

In the basement of an empty house
I slept on the floor like a vagrant
I braved a Minnesota winter night
And drove to a movie feeling lonely

And as I thawed my heart out by the light
Of the silver screen
I was unaware that you were there
In the dark, a silhouette
Was climbing up the stairs

And what I thought
In the parking lot
Was like, I just wanna know your name
I drove away
With not much to say
But in my hand I held a paper bird
And written on it were the words
Be brave

Wildflower knew I wasn’t well
But on the kitchen floor I got better again
I grabbed my keys and drove toward a star
And there, I was understood for the first time in my life

Cause that’s when I was introduced to true
Serendipity
I knew it when
You showed up again
In the snow, I was always told
Your heart is where you’re home

And what I thought
In the coffee shop
Was like, the last eight hours was a dream
I drove away
With not much to say
But in my hand I held a paper bird
And written on it were the words

Ok, I’ll be brave

And in my mind
After all this time
I think, ain’t life beautiful and strange
I’m blown away
With no words to say
Cause I, I’ll forever be amazed
How I learned the meaning of the phrase
Be brave

Lirik New York City - Owl City

I’m digging through the glove box
I thought I had a map in here
The driver’s door doesn’t lock
I bought the car my junior year
There’s candy in my backpack
And you can pick our soundtrack
We’re heading for the East Coast tonight
So pack your bags and hold on tight
‘Cause we’re taking off
We’re taking off

Run away with me
We’re on the way to New York City
Take my hand and see
Manhattan never looked so pretty
Travel light and see the world right
You’ll never know if you never go, so
Run away with me
And say, “Hello,” to New York City

Feet up on the dashboard
We’re driving with the windows down
Did you forget your phone cord?
We’ll buy one in the next small town
Get dinner at an IHOP
A shower at a truck stop
We’ll listen to some Johnny Cash
Take my hand and don’t look back
‘Cause we’re moving on
We’re moving on

Run away with me
We’re on the way to New York City
Take my hand and see
Manhattan never looked so pretty
Travel light and see the world right
You’ll never know if you never go, so
Run away with me
And say, “Hello,” to New York City

Run away
Run away
Run away
Run away

Run away with me
We’re on the way to New York City
Take my hand and see
Manhattan never looked so pretty
Travel light and see the world right
You’ll never know if you never go, so
Run away with me…

Stroll the midtown streets
And tell me that you don’t feel giddy
Lady Liberty
Ain’t throwing us a wink or is she?
Travel light and see the world right
You’ll never know if you never go so
Run away with me
And say, “Hello,” to New York City
Say, “Hello,” to New York City
Say, “Hello,” to New York City

Lirik Firebird - Owl City

We used to talk all night and not say a word
When I would hop into your red Firebird
And, man alive, we would drive just to drive around town
‘Cause in your car we understood and figured out
That everything changes
Everything changes

Tell me why I look back and I wanna cry
Sometimes I feel like we grew up too fast
You and I had the time of our younger lives
Sometimes I sigh and think about the past
But it’s alright, cause everything changes

A basement full of boys building homemade bombs
AJ cut his finger and said, “go get your mom”
I saw it all through the windshield of my white truck, Troy
Lotsa ups, lotsa downs, lots of growing up
‘Cause everything changes
Everything changes

Tell me why I look back and I wanna cry
Sometimes I feel like we grew up too fast
You and I had the time of our younger lives
Sometimes I sigh and think about the past
But it’s alright, cause everything changes

Hey Billy, remember when
It was just us (it was just us)
Pretending we were Nash and Coral
On the school bus
I wouldn’t change a thing, ’cause everything changes
(Changes, changes, chanes)

Life is different now and that’s okay with me
I moved away and you started a family
But deep inside you and I are still the same kids
‘Cause you’re my brother and that won’t ever change
Even though everything changes

Tell me why I look back and I wanna cry
Sometimes I feel like we grew up too fast
You and I had the time of our younger lives
Sometimes I sigh and think about the past
But it’s alright, yeah it’s alright

There’s a new guest room in my parents’ home
The carpet got replaced a couple years ago
Because it isn’t my bedroom anymore
There’s new photographs on the freezer door
But it’s alright, ’cause everything changes
(Everything changes)

We should talk all night and not say a word
(‘Cause everything changes)
Let me hop into your red Firebird again
