Owl City Vanilla Twilight Lyrics

Last updated: 09/30/2013 09:22:46 AM

The stars lean down to kiss you
And I lie 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'll send a postcard to you, dear
Cause I wish you were here

I'll watch the night turn light blue
But it's not the same without you
Because it takes two to whisper quietly
The silence isn't so bad
Till I look at my hands and feel sad
Cause the spaces between my fingers
Are right where yours fit perfectly

I'll find repose in new ways
Though I haven't slept in two days
Cause cold nostalgia chills me to the bone
But drenched in vanilla twilight
I'll sit on the front porch all night
Waist deep in thought because when
I think of you I don't feel so alone

I don't feel so alone
I don't feel so alone

As many times as I blink
I'll think of you tonight
(Tonight, tonight, tonight...)

I'll think of you tonight

When violet eyes get brighter
And heavy wings grow lighter
I'll taste the sky and feel alive again
And I'll forget the world that I knew
But I swear I won't forget you
Oh if my voice could reach back through the past
I'd whisper in your ear:
"Oh darling I wish you were here"

this song is so sad, as beautiful songs often are | Reviewer: Rowan | 2/22/13

I have a huge crush on a guy who's a really good friend of mine, and this song makes me think of him and I only see him once in a while, so when I hear this song it makes me cry, this song is so sad, as beautiful songs often are. I love Vanilla Twilight :)

First off this song is amazing!! My boyfriend lives miles apart and this song always makes me smile by thinking about him.. And second at hopeyoureadthis you should listen to butterflies by phoenix forever. It's a great son I listened to it forever when me and my ex broke up...it really helped me

Miss him so bad... | Reviewer: Rozemary | 3/21/11

I just watched the clip on Showbuzz.. And a thought of him crosses my mind... He's now hundreds miles away from me, but he'll come back soon. Many days gone without him by my side... And one thing i just realizd is that he's probably not the same as he used to be...

beautiful, terrible at the same time | Reviewer: HopeYouReadThis | 9/9/10

I heard this song the night i broke up with my ex. She meant everything to me and she always will, and though i'm still friends with her things will never be the same between us as they used to and it really tears me apart. She's over me though, and even though i need to get better myself i still miss her terribly and i will always fight on for her. When i hear the last 4 lines i'm always reminded of how things once used to be and i know i'll always do whatever it takes to see her happy no matter how much i have to sacrifice...

so sad :/ | Reviewer: Whatsername | 8/29/10

i love it, reminds me of my boyfriend who is far away from me :/
though i know Adam wrote it for his girlfriend who passed away. so sad :/, but yet he isn't all depressed, he believes that he'll see her again someday : 'When violet eyes get brighter
And heavy wings grow lighter
I'll taste the sky and feel alive again
And I'll forget the world that I knew
But I swear I won't forget you'

it's so sad :(, makes me cry
