Owl City - Sunburn Lyrics

So there we were, back home from somewhere inside my head

Where bravely I fought off the monsters beneath her bed

Pillars of post-war books supported my frame of mind

While she memorized the pages that I tried to not hide behind

She took my hand in hers and whispered her love for me

The lantern died that night but we didn't need to see

Implying that she's the bee's knees and I am the cat's meow

It's funny how she recalls what I can't remember now

But when her smile came back and I didn't feel half as horrible

She gave me a heart attack just because she looks so adorable

We both put our sunblock on, laid on the beach and vowed that we'd live and we'd learn

Yeah, but she got a tan and I got a sunburn

I got a sunburn

So there we were, out there, unaware of where we'd been

We kicked off our flip-flops and swung from the rooftops again

It's awkward but I'll confess she's all I can think about

And it's funny how I recall what she can't remember now

But when her smile came back and I didn't feel half as horrible

She gave me a heart attack just because she looks so adorable

We both put our sunblock on, laid on the beach and vowed that we'd live and we'd learn

Yeah, but she got a tan and I got a sunburn

Oh afterglow, look out below

I left a trail of dust behind

As we parted ways, she held my gaze

And left an imprint on my mind

I tried not to cry as we said goodbye

And hung the clouds above my town

But I shed a tear when she disappeared

'Cause now I'm a stranger on the ground

(But when her smile came back)

(And I didn't feel half as horrible)

(She gave me a heart attack)

We both put our sunblock on, laid on the beach and vowed that we'd live and we'd learn

But she got a tan and I got a sunburn

She got a tan and I got a sunburn

Yeah, but she got a tan and I got a sunburn
