Songfacts®:

  • This is the opening track from Ocean Eyes, the second full length album from Owl City, which is a synthpop musical project by Minnesota native Adam Young. Relient K singer, Matt Thiessen, provides guest vocals.
  • Young told The Sun February 12, 2010 that this track is dear to his heart. He explained: "That song captures in just a few words, all my hopes and dreams. I'm always wondering about the great unknown and the theme of that song is about asking what else lies out there, what adventures are waiting to be had."
