Vanilla Twilight

Vanilla Twilight is the eleventh track featured on the album Ocean Eyes. The duration is (3:52).


The stars lean down to kiss you,
And I lie awake and miss you.
Pour me a heavy dose of atmosphere.
'Cause I'll doze off safe and soundly,
But I'll miss your arms around me
I'd send a postcard to you dear,
'Cause I wish you were here.

I'll watch the night turn light blue 
But its not the same without you
Because it takes two to whisper quietly.
The silence isn't so bad.
'Till I look at my hands and feel sad
'Cause the spaces between my fingers are right where yours fit perfectly.

I'll find repose in new ways,
Though I haven't slept in two days
'Cause cold nostalgia chills me to the bone.
But drenched in vanilla twilight I'll sit on the front porch all night.
Waist deep in thought because when I think of you

I don't feel so alone..
I don't feel so alone..
I don't feel so alone..

As many times as I blink I'll think of you tonight.
I'll think of you tonight.

When violet eyes get brighter
And heavy wings grow lighter
I'll taste the sky and feel alive again.
And I'll forget the world I knew
But I swear I won't forget you
Oh, if my voice could reach back to the past
I'd whisper in your ear
Oh, darling I wish you were here.



  • It is a sad, almost downbeat song about somebody (It is not sure if it is Adam Young, but it definitely is a boy) and how he longs to be with a girl and is about what he does while he thinks about it and how he copes with it.
