Hi. My name is Julie. And this is when I had a midnight adventure with Owl City. It all started when I went over to my older sister's house. They were barbequing, and said we could spend the night there. My twin sister, Alex, and I were really excited. The air was filled with the smell of ribs. We were singing loudly to Pandora's Owl City Station. Suddenly, Mom annouced,
" Girls the ribs are ready! Wash up!"
We quickly did and sat down. I gobbled my rib down, and I got back to singing. Hours passed like minutes, and it was 11:30 pm. Our mom told us to get our...
I went to a garden party to reminisce with my old friends
A chance to share old memories and play our songs again
When I got to the garden party, they all knew my name
But no one recognized me, I didn’t look the same
But it’s all right now, I learned my lesson well
You see, you can’t please everyone so you gotta please yourself
People came from miles around and everyone was there
Yoko brought her walrus, there was magic in the air
And over in the corner, much to my surprise
Everywhere, everybody needs a neighbor
Showing up when times get hard
But there's friends of sons and daughters
Saying grace without supper in your backyard
Who doesn't wanna be a hero?
At least a little bit of helping out
There's something you're never gonna help or change
But hunger's something we can turn around
Here's hope (Here's hope)
Showing up at your front door
Here's hope (Here's hope)
Yeah what's everybody looking for
There was a shot in the dark, I was caught by surprise
There was a hole in my heart, there were tears in your eyes
And there was nothing to say 'cause you made up your mind
So I guess what you meant when you left was goodbye
So if you're gonna go and leave me in a lonely grave
I won't let it show until you've finally flown away
You gotta know that you tear me up when you say
You wanna take it all away, take it all away
You tear me up when you say
Stand on up and take a bow
There is something there and it's showing
There is no need to look around you're the best we got going
Shout out to the dreams you'll chase
Shout out to the hearts you'll break
Nothing is gonna stop you now
I guess you better be going
You'll never be far, I'm keeping you near, inside of my heart, you're here
Go on, It's got to be time, you're starting to shine cause what you've got is gold
This is a world, of dreams, and reverie,
where I felt the stars, explode, around me.
A grass blade flashed with a gleam,
as it slashed open a moonbeam,
and I stared back breathlessly,
as mountains of fruit tumbled out,
I barely had the chance to shout,(shout)
A Strawberry Avalanche crashed over me.
Staying awake, that night, was rather hard,
Deep in a sleeping bag, in your backyard.
When we woke up buried alive,
Musicians always wax lyrical about this country of ours... but no-one really loves Middle Earth, I mean New Zealand... the way that ADAM YOUNG of OWL CITY clearly does.
COUP DE MAIN: Welcome back to New Zealand! How does it feel to be visiting us again?
OWL CITY - ADAM YOUNG: Awesome! It feels great, I never thought I'd be here at all. So now that I'm back again, it feels kind of like home. <laughs>
CDM: True or false? Apparently last year you came to New Zealand on a holiday?
The Stars lean down to kiss you, and i lye awake and miss you, pour me a heavy dose of atmosphere....cause i'll doze off safe and soundly, but i'll miss your arms around me, i'd send a postcard to ya dear, cause i wish YOU were here!--Mr. Adam Young- of Owl City
I absolutly love Adm Young. I have a poster og him in my bedroon...but i personally think that you don't need a poster to prove you like something..you need to love it in your heart.It doesn't matter if people know you like it.
