OWL CITY


Alligator Sky Lyrics

Featuring: Shawn Chrystopher

Where was I when the rockets came to life
And carried you away into the alligator sky?
Even though I'll never know what's up ahead
I'm never lettin' go, I'm never lettin' go

That's not a plane, that's me
I'm sittin' where I'm supposed to
Floatin' on the cloud, can't nobody come close to
The concrete and the sky switch places
So now my ceilin' is painted with cosmic spaces

Firecracker to the moon, keep your eyes shut
Blastin' off like a rocket from the ground up
I used to catch a cab on the Monday
Now the taxi's sellin' lights on the runway, fly

Condo on The Milky Way
A house on the cloud and God's my landlord
And for my rent all I pay is my drive
I got that, so if you need me
You can find me in the alligator sky

Where was I when the rockets came to life
And carried you away into the alligator sky?
Even though I'll never know what's up ahead
I'm never lettin' go, I'm never lettin' go

Roller coaster through the atmosphere
I'm drownin' in this starry serenade
Where ecstasy becomes cavalier
My imagination's takin' me away

Reverie whispered in my ear
I'm scared to death that I'll never be afraid
Roller coaster through the atmosphere
My imagination's takin' me away

Now I'ma dance like I never dance
Sing like I never sing, dream like I've never dreamed
Or try to, 'cause we've been lied to
That the sun is somethin' that we can't fly to

Well, I sit on my star and see street lights
Look up, ha, you'll miss me if you blink twice
Imagination is hot and if you got it you can meet me
When you see me in the alligator sky

Where was I when the rockets came to life
And carried you away into the alligator sky?
Even though I'll never know what's up ahead
I'm never lettin' go, I'm never lettin' go

Where was I when the rockets came to life
And carried you away into the alligator sky?
Even though I'll never know what's up ahead
I'm never lettin' go, I'm never lettin' go

In the alligator sky
In the alligator sky
In the alligator sky
In the alligator sky

I seriously love this song. It's a bit different than all of Adam's other songs, with Shawn Chrystopher and the rapping, but that's Adam for you! I'm surprised this isn't on the radio. It should be.
