Beautiful Times Lyrics

by Owl City

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 rain cloud

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

A cab driver turned to skydiver
Then to survivor
Dying to breakdown

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 startin' 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 startin' 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
