Dreams and Disasters

Album: The Midsummer Station (2012)
  • Adam Young, aka Owl City, opens his fourth studio album, The Midsummer Station with this track, which sums up the core theme of the record. "Life is full of dreams and disasters," he explained. "When things go right, you feel like you're on top of the world and when things go bad, you're heartbroken, but you've got to figure out how to press on regardless of your situation because life is all about the journey."
