Honey and the Bee

This is one of my favourite songs from Owl City's latest album, All Things Bright and Beautiful. It's a duet featuring Adam Young and Breanne Duren. Enjoy folks! ^^


Don't remind me
That some days I'm the windshield
And other days I'm just a lucky bug
As cold iron rail leave old mossy trails through the countryside

The crow and bean field
Are my best friends, but boy I need a hug
'Cause my heart stops without you
There's something about you that makes me feel alive

If the green left the grass on the other side
I would make like a tree and leave
But if I reached for your hand, would your eyes get wide
Who knew the other side could be so green

Don't remind me
I'm a chickadee in love with the sky
But that's clearly not a lot to crow about
'Cause when the stars silhouette me
I'm scared they'll forget me, and flicker out

I taste honey but I haven't seen the hive
Yeah, I didn't look, I didn't even try
But still my heart stops without you
'Cause there's something about you that makes me feel alive

If the green left the grass on the other side
I would make like a tree and leave
But if I reached for your hand, would your eyes get wide
Who knew the other side could be so green

We are honey and the bee

Backyard of butterflies surrounded me
I fell in love with you, like bees to honey
So let's up and leave the weeping to the willow tree
And pour our tears in the sea

I swear! There's a lot of vegetables out there, that crop up for air
And yet I never thought we were two peas in a pod
To be suddenly bloomed, I knew
That I'd always love you
Oh I'll always love you too

If the green left the grass on the other side
I would make like a tree and leave
But if I reached for your hand, would your eyes get wide
Who knew the other side could be so green

If the green left the grass on the other side
I would make like a tree and leave
But if I reached for your hand, would your eyes get wide
Who knew the other side could be so green

And if I reached for your hand for the rest of my life
Who knew the other side could be so green
