Owl City "Sunburn" lyrics

Translation to: RU ES TO

So there we were, back home
From somewhere inside my head
Well, 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 bees' knees
And I am the cat's meow
It's funny how she recalls
What I can't remember now

(Chorus)
But when her smile came back
And I didn't feel half as horrible
She gave me a heart attack
Just because she looked so adorable
We both put our sunblock on, played 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

(Chorus)

Oh, afterglow, look out below
We'd left a trail of dust behind
As we parted ways, she held my gaze
And left and 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, played 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
