Album: Mobile Orchestra (2015)
  • songfacts ®
  • Lyrics
  • This twang-dance ballad is about living it up on a special occasion. "When I wrote 'Verge' I wanted to capture that moment everyone experiences," Owl City (aka Adam Young) said, "that one event in life that signifies the end of an era followed by a new beginning."
  • The song features guest vocals from Aloe Blacc whose singing on Avicii's "Wake Me Up" helped make it become a mega-hit.
