Owl City

Owl City - The Saltwater Room

rate me

I opened my eyes last night, and saw you in the low light

Walking down by the bay, on the shore

Staring up at the stars that aren’t there anymore

I was feeling the night grow old, and you were looking so cold

So like an introvert, I drew my overshirt

Around my arms and began to shiver violently

Before you happened to look and see the tunnels all around me

Running into the dark underground

All the subways around create a great sound

To my motion fatigue, farewell

With your ear to a seashell

You can hear the waves in underwater caves

As if you actually were inside the Saltwater Room

Time together isn't ever quite enough

When you and I are alone, I’ve never felt so at home

What will it take to make or break this into love?

Only time, only time

Can you believe that the crew has gone?

And they wouldn't let me sign on

All my islands have sunk in the deep

And I can hardly relax or even oversleep

But, I feel warm with your hand, in mine

When we walk along the shore line

I guess we'll never know, why sparrows love the snow

We'll turn out all of the lights, and set this ballroom aglow

So tell me darling do you wish we’d fall in love?

Yeah, all the time. All the time.

Time together isn't quite enough

When you and I are alone, I’ve never felt so at home

What will it take to make or break this into love?

Only time, only time

When we’re apart what ever are you thinking of?

If this is what I call home, why does it feel so alone?

So tell me darling do you wish we’d fall in love?

All the time, all the time.

Time together is just never quite enough

When we’re apart whatever are you thinking of?

What will it take to make or break this into love?

So tell me darling do you wish we’d fall in love?

All the time. Oh, all the time.

It's a little bit different so I went over and corrected what I heard.
