  • Lyrics
  • This track is included on the deluxe version of electro act Owl City's album Ocean Eyes. Lyrically the song is about his trademark desire to escape in dreams and sky. He explained to Female First that it is "a carefree song about adventure and exploration. Looking down on the world, leaning out and brushing the snow from evergreen branches, wondering where life will take you."
