"Beautiful Times" by Owl City really means a lot to me. Over the past few months, I’ve been going through so many emotional and mental struggles. More recently, I’ve been able to overcome all these hardships. It required a lot of encouragement, but I pulled through. I had to keep reminding myself that it wasn’t the end. This too shall pass.

I haven’t been able to connect Adam’s music for a long time. I couldn’t really relate that much to The Midsummer Station, even though I like the album. “Beautiful Times” reminded me not only of the struggles I’ve had over the past few months, but also of the pain I experienced three years ago, around the time when I first started listening to Owl City. Adam’s music had helped me so much. I think it’s safe to say Adam Young has changed my life. I really don’t know what state I’d be in right now if I never decided to look him up. I don’t know what I would be doing. I don’t know if I’d even be interested in the career I want to pursue. He’s made that big of a difference in my life.

The more I listen to “Beautiful Times,” the more I’m reminded, encouraged, and thankful. Reminded of the pain of the past, encouraged to look to the future, because it doesn’t end here, and thankful that God created Adam Young to touch the lives of many people.



A spark soaring
Down through the pouring
Rain and restoring 
Life to the lighthouse 
A slow motion 
Wave on the ocean 
Stirs my emotion 
Up like a raincloud 

When did the sky turn black
And when will the light come back 
A cab driver 
Turned to skydiver 
Then to survivor 
Dying to break down 
A blood brother 
Surrogate mother 
Hugging each other 
Crying their eyes out 

When did the sky turn black 
And when will the light come back 

I'm ecstatic 
Like a drug addict 
Locked in the attic 
Strung out and spellbound

I fought all through the night 
Oh oh, but I made it alive 
The sun's starting to rise 
Oh oh, these are beautiful times 
This fight of my life is so hard, so hard, so hard 
But I'm gonna survive 
Oh oh, these are beautiful times 

A bad feeling 
Burned through the ceiling
Leaving my healing 
Heart with a new scar 
A dead fire 
Rose and rose higher 
Like a vampire 
Up from the graveyard 

When did the sky turn black 
And when will the light come back 

We all suffer 
But we recover 
Just to discover 
Life where we all are 

I fought all through the night 
Oh oh, but I made it alive 
The sun's starting to rise 
Oh oh, these are beautiful times 
This fight of my life is so hard, so hard, so hard 
But I'm gonna survive 
Oh oh, these are beautiful times 
This fight of my life is so hard, so hard, so hard 
But I'm gonna survive 
Oh oh, these are beautiful times 

My heart's burning 
Bad and it's turning 
Black but I'm learning 
How to be stronger 
And sincerely 
I love you dearly 
Oh but I'm clearly 
Destined to wander

Hi! I have a question for you. Did you do all your photo edits (more specifically the Alligator Sky movie poster) on Photoshop, or did you use something else?

It would be really helpful, thank you :D
