A New SongSwing to the sound of a new song.A New Song by SaturdayNothing
Dance to the beat of a sweet harmony.
Twirl to the sweep of a graceful lyric.
Take up your story and continue. You hit that rut but you won't stop there. There's a new song playing and it's waiting for you to take its hand again. Don't stop, don't stop.
The tide is turning once more, do you see it? Shine bright, my dear! Shine! Let the world see your light. That heavenly light through you.
So lovely, be lovely. You are so lovely. Keep your head up, release your high hopes! You'll survive, trust me, you will! Have faith!
Smile that beautiful smile, rise and speak who you are. Be who you are and let no one ask you to be otherwise. Then they will see you and know they cannot fool someone like you. Someone like you.
So hear this new song played just for you. Take it and place it to your heart. Let it consume you and let it beat to the rhythm of your soul.
Open your hazel eyes and step forwards in the shining light of the Lovely One. They will
Of June, Maybe I'm Dreaming, and Ocean Eyes were recorded in his parents' basement. He had not yet seen the world. He only dreamed.
And then he traveled. He met new people, saw new things, got new ideas. He saw the world from another perspective.
The real world strikes hard. It changes outlooks, it changes thoughts, and it can certainly change a small town boy.
But he still dreams, he still creates, and he still gives that message of hope.
So the small town boy who lived in his parents' basement hasn't changed much, even after seeing the world.
All Things Bright and Beautiful, The Midsummer Station, and Ultraviolet were recorded in his own studio and other studios. But he had seen the world.
And he didn't have to only dream now. He had experienced.
And he learned.
At first, he told people, "Escape, but press on." Now he says, "Fight, and press on."
Because daydreams are an escape. But the real world is a battle. And to win the battle, you cannot escape. You must fight.
You cannot hide from reality forever. No matter how much time you spend on your castle on a cloud, reality awaits your return.
And it will crush you and try to defeat you. But you cannot win with your head in the clouds. You need to be able to see.
The real world will knock you down. It will tear your heart out. But you cannot give up.
Learn how to be stronger.
Don't run. Learn.
Learn how to survive. Learn how to fight. Learn how to live.
Reality will make you suffer. But it will teach you how to live.
And when you've overcome an obstacle reality has thrown your way or defeated a dark enemy, you can look back.
And then you can look to the future, and say, "These are beautiful times."
And this, friends, is what Owl City means to me.
