Imagination Words

Owl City's new CD, All Things Bright and Beautiful, just came out a few weeks ago, and this song... I can picture myself trapped, exploring this wonderful old house with a ghost... What an amazing story...

I saw a ghost on the stairs
And sheets on the tables and chairs
The silverware swam with the sharks in the sink
Even so, I don't know what to think

I've been longing for
Daises to push through the floor
And I wish plant life would grow all around me
So I won't feel dead anymore

I saw a bear in the den
Reading my textbooks again
And bats flowed like traffic
As they poured from the attic
Heaven knows, I could really use a friend

I'd rather waltz than just walk through the forest
The trees keep the tempo and they sway in time
A quartet of crickets chime for the chorus
If I were to pluck on your heartstrings would you strum on mine

Your spirit is sweet
So pull off your sheet
And give me a ghost of a smile
Show me your teeth
Cause you're a teddy beneath
So just grin and bear it a while

If that was all about nothing at all
A new leaf turns over, unwilling to fall

Tonight I'm busting out
Of this old haunted house
Cause I'm sick of waiting for
All those spiderwebs to grow all around me
Cause I don't feel dead anymore
And I'm not afraid anymore

Check out the whole song: Plant Life by Owl City - totally worth it, especially if you need some inspiration. And while you're at it, there are several other brilliant imagination songs on the album as well.
