Owl City

Owl City - Swimming In Miami

rate me

<BR>

I'm alone above the atmosphere<br>

And no one looking up can find me here<br>

Cause I can close my eyes, and disappear<br>

When I climb the stairs to watch the sun<br>

Above station walls, the colors run<br>

To fill the swimming pool when I am done<br>

<br>

I am the captain of an oil tanker that travels through your veins<br>

<br>

When the satellites hang all around<br>

And I can hear the lovely sound<br>

When all the engines of the back room die down<br>

All the airships move across the sky<br>

And my equipment just keeps standing by<br>

The planets glow and intensify<br>

<br>

I am the pilot of a cargo airplane that travels through your veins<br>

<br>

When you are lying half asleep in your room<br>

Unaware if it is midnight or afternoon<br>

Because the water doesn't flood the stairwell<br>

It could be raining but you can never tell<br>

<br>

If you're alone in this awful downpour<br>

Then struggle free and paddle out the cellar door<br>

<br>

In the evening night the boulevard<br>

Conceals the night in disregard<br>

For all the workers in a west coast ship yard<br>

When I rearrange the silverware<br>

And re-install the lights and captain's chair<br>

I'll lift the ceiling off to breathe the ocean air<br>

<br>

I am the engineer of forty freight trains that travels through your veins<br>

<br>

When you are lying half asleep in your room<br>

Unaware if it is midnight or afternoon<br>

Because the water doesn't flood the stairwell<br>

It could be raining but you can never tell'<br>

<br>

If you're awake in this awful downpour<br>

Then struggle free and paddle out the cellar door<br>

When you are swimming in Miami at night<br>

And all around you are the traffic and city lights<br>

<BR><BR>
