"If my heart was a house …"

Picture 2
Owl City:

You’re the sky that I fell through;
and I remember the view whenever I’m holding you.
The sun hung from a string,
looking down on the world as it warms over everything.

Chills run down my spine as our fingers entwine
and your sighs harmonize with mine.
Unmistakably, I can still feel your heart beat fast when you dance with me.

We got older and I should’ve known
(Do you feel alive?)
that I’d feel colder when I walk alone.
(Oh, but you’ll survive)
So I may as well ditch my dismay: bombs away, bombs away!

Circle me and the needle moves gracefully back and forth;
if my heart was a compass you’d be north.
Risk it all coz I’ll catch you if you fall;
wherever you go,
if my heart was a house, you’d be home.

It makes me smile because you said it best:
I would clearly feel blessed if the sun rose up from the west.
Flower balm perfume, all my clothes smell like you
coz your favorite shade is navy blue.

I walk slowly when I’m on my own.
(Do you feel alive?)
Yeah, but frankly I still feel alone.
(Oh, but you’ll survive)
So I may as well ditch my dismay: bombs away, bombs away!

Circle me and the needle moves gracefully back and forth;
if my heart was a compass you’d be north.
Risk it all coz I’ll catch you if you fall;
wherever you go,
if my heart was a house, you’d be home.
If my heart was a house, you’d be home.

Currently listening to: Owl City and LIGHTS

New music on my iPod:

Owl City is 23 year-old Adam Young, from Minnesota. I can’t post the music video for his song “Fireflies” (which was how I came to hear about him) up here coz embedding is disabled, but check it out. Also check out “Meteor Shower” and “Hello Seattle” on his latest offering, “Ocean Eyes.”

LIGHTS is a 22 year-old from Ontario, Canada. Here’s the music video for her song “Drive My Soul,” from her EP. Her album is coming out next month.

And both are going on tour soon–unfortunately, I won’t be able to catch either of them, but check out their tour schedules here: Owl City and Lights.
