That's right, everyone. As of today, June 28th, 2014, it has been five years since Ocean Eyes came out.
Five years of:
Cold integrity keeping us wide awake.
Taking long walks through the cornfield.
Falling asleep in hospital parking lots.
Chandeliers lighting up the engine room.
Counting all the ship lights.
Brushing our teeth and looking in the mirror.
Finally seeing that you're right there beside us.
Floating away, lost in a silent ballet.
Making yourself believe that planet earth turns slowly.
Doing whatever it takes to change.
Looking down at our hands and feeling sad...
And not needing a telescope to see that there's hope.
It's been a great five years, Adam. It really has. You've saved so many of us with your music, especially with this album. Ocean Eyes is what Owl City is. What it's about. Freedom and dreams and dental care and saltwater rooms and fireflies and the magic that is Adam Young.
Now, go and listen.
