Owl City – Kelly Time Lyrics

Owl City Kelly Time Lyrics

Well, video tapes and ice skates
Are beautiful things
Like a birthday card for Johnny
And a pair of angel wings
You were trying to light a fire
And all you wanted was a match
But you knew I didn’t have one
So it was odd that you should ask
No, it wasn’t just the plane crash
That shook you to the core
But the very thought of losing her
That made it all worth dying for

I’m sorry
I’m sorry

We both washed up on that island
All alone without a friend
Thinking you and I were gonna die there
And that would be the end
But as the weeks turned into months
I saw you overcome your fears
And as we became companions
All those months turned into years
When we would talk and talk for hours
You would make sure I felt heard
Cuz you knew what I was saying
Though I never said a word

Ooh
I’m ready for anything
Ooh
Who knows what the tide could bring
Ooh
Yeah I’m ready for anything
Ooh
Who knows what the tide could bring
After fifteen hundred days
You and me escaped to sea
And I knew that you still loved the girl
From Memphis, Tennessee
Out there on that lonely ocean
We met a passing humpback whale
Cuz all the way from Bakersfield
The tide gave us a sail
And just like that, it happened
The waves took me away
And I’m sorry, I’m so sorry
That you lost a friend that day

Ooh
I’m ready for anything
Ooh
Who knows what the tide could bring
Ooh
Yeah I’m ready for anything
Ooh
Who knows what the tide could bring

Well, you and me went on a journey
Full of tragedy and pain
But I’m grateful I was with you
Through the sunshine and the rain
And when I wonder where you are now
I’ll probably never know
But my friend, I hope you made it
And somehow, you finally made it home
I have an ocean worth of questions
But if I do know one thing
It’s that the sun will rise tomorrow
And who knows what the tide could bring?

Goodbye, my friend
I’ll never forget you
Hey Kelly, are you there? Pick up!
I know I said I’d be back
And like that, nobody knew where I was at
All my logic said I would never see you again
After four years of missing you so bad
But here I am
And now I have to learn to let you go
Even though
I love you more than you’ll ever know
I’m getting used to half a heart and the way things are
But Kelly, I never should’ve gotten out of the car
I’m sorry

Ooh
I’m ready for anything
Ooh
Who knows what the tide could bring
Ooh
Yeah I’m ready for anything
Ooh
Who knows what the tide could bring

I’m sorry for everything
But nobody knows what the tide could bring
You know?
Nobody knows what the tide could bring
Video tapes and ice skates
Are beautiful things
Like a pocket watch on Kelly Time
And a pair of angel wings
Oh and the birthday card to Johnny
It made me realize
That the most beautiful thing in the world
Is, of course, the gift of life
The most beautiful thing in the world
Is to be so wonderfully alive
