  • I feel you glowing in the dark
    When I collapse into your arms
    I'm just a stranger in the stars

    'Cause somehow it seems when I am with you
    That all of my dreams begin to come true
    And carefully you carry me away

    I've never felt so wide awake
    'Cause I'm wonder struck
    I love how you take my breath away
    I'm thunderstruck
    To tell you the truth, I'm so afraid
    That I'm out of luck
    I love how you take my breath away
    I'm thunderstruck

    I chase the phantoms down the hall
    I felt the floorboards rise and fall
    I lost and never loved at all

    I find in the days when you're in my dreams
    The orchestra plays the prettiest themes
    And carefully you carry me away

    I've never felt so wide awake
    'Cause I'm wonder struck
    I love how you take my breath away
    I'm thunderstruck
    To tell you the truth, I'm so afraid
    That I'm out of luck
    I love how you take my breath away
    I'm thunderstruck

    Woah, I'm leaving the world behind
    Fulfill my dreams
    Oh, and my dreams are shattered
    Woah, I'm over the moon tonight
    Fulfill my dreams
    Oh, and my dreams are shattered
    'Cause somehow it seems (when I am with you)
    That all of my dreams (begin to come true)
    And carefully you carry me away

    You take my breathe away
    When I'm with you
    Fulfill my dreams
    And my dreams are shattered
    When I look at you
    My dreams are shattered
    When I look at you Writer/s: ADAM R. YOUNG

  • Pirate King Of Owl City from Nigeria For some reason, whenever I heard this song, I'd always pictured the 'happily ever after' story that would follow the classic 'knight in shinning armor recued the princess from the dragon's keep' stories.
    Like, during the first verse, I'd picture the aftermath of the knight vs dragon battle and how the knight "collapsed into her arms" exhausted. And by the end of the song, because the knight was nervous and/or intimidated by he status, they botg decide to leave their world behind
