Owl City

Owl City - Sunburn

rate me

<BR>

So there we were, back home from somewhere inside my head<br>

Oh, bravely I fought off the monsters beneath her bed<br>

Pillars of postwar books supported by frame of mind<br>

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

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

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

Implying that she's the bee's knees and I am the cat's meow<br>

It's funny how she recalls what I can't remember now <br>

<br>

But when her smile came back and I didn't feel half as horrible<br>

She gave me a heart attack just because she looked so adorable<br>

We both put our sunblock on, played on the beach and vowed that we'd live and we'd learn<br>

Yeah, but she got a tan, and I got a sunburn<br>

I got a sunburn<br>

<br>

So there we were out there, unaware of where we'd been<br>

We kicked off our flipflops and swung from the rooftops again<br>

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

And it's funny how I recall what she can't remember now<br>

<br>

But when her smile came back and I didn't feel half as horrible<br>

She gave me a heart attack just because she looked so adorable<br>

We both put our sunblock on, played on the beach and vowed that we'd live and we'd learn<br>

Yeah, but she got a tan, and I got a sunburn<br>

<br>

Oh, afterglow, look out below<br>

We left a trail of dust behind<br>

As we parted ways, she held my gaze<br>

And left an imprint on my mind<br>

I tried not to cry as we said goodbye<br>

And hung the clouds above my town<br>

But I shed a tear when she disappeared<br>

Cause now I'm a stranger on the ground<br>

<br>

When her smile came back and I didn't feel half as horrible<br>

She gave me a heart attack<br>

We both put our sunblock on, played on the beach and vowed that we'd live and we'd learn<br>

But she got a tan, and I got a sunburn<br>

She got a tan, and I got a sunburn<br>

Yeah, but she got a tan, and I got a sunburn<br>

<BR><BR>
