Owl City is an American synthpop musical project by Adam Young.
Young began out making songs in his parents’ basement in Owatonna, Minnesota which he claims is a result of his insomnia.
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 over shirt 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 a saltwater room Time together isn't never quite enough When you and I are alone, I've never felt so at home What will it take to make or break this hint of love?
Only time, only time Can you believe that the crew has gone And wouldn't let me sign on?
Young’s influences are disco and European electronic material. “Fireflies” topped the US and Canadian charts and became the most-downloaded song on i Tunes in the US, and the record Ocean Eyes reached the top ten on the US album charts and dominated the US electronic charts.
After two independent albums, Owl City gained mainstream popularity from the 2009 major label debut record Ocean Eyes, which spawned the U. Ocean Eyes also reached Amazon MP3’s top 10 most downloaded album list.
The singer/songwriter was relieved his childhood hero... The rocker confirmed he won't be able to join the band in Australia in February 2013 due to his fear of flying, which stems from his narrow survival... The Minnesota-based star has scored his first number one on the Billboard Hot 100...
Owl City star Adam Young is still waiting to hear back from Taylor Swift after dedicating a romantic ballad to the country singer as a Valentine's Day (14Feb11) gift.
All my islands have sunk In the deep, And I can hardly relax or even oversleep But I feel more with your hand In mine When we walk on the shore line I guess we'll never know, why sparrows love the snow We'll turn off 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 never quite enough When you and I are alone, I've never felt so at home What will it take to make or break this hint of love?
As long as you can visualize it, you can make it a reality.” It seems as if turning visions and creative worlds into realities has been a theme for Lights, who moved from Timmins, Ontario—a town with a population of 42,000—to Toronto at the age of 18, hungry to become a singer.
