I have put owl city fireflies on replay, it’s so cute. Like it would be nice for toddlers, lol oops I am listening to a song appropriate for 2 year olds hahaha. Oh well anyhow I was thinking about this line when he goes “I’d rather stay awake when I am asleep because everything is never as it seems” I would want to too since life is so much more interesting when it is an unexpected hour.
As said, that is when the lightning bugs come out and light up the whole world. It is so enticing, waking up at hours out of the norm and enjoying whatever new discovery you make. Hearing night bugs serenading and watching them dance. Relishing the flirting breeze and the spotlight of the moon.
Then later in those hours when the transition from night to day occurs, nature in one of its most beautiful appearances, most amazing outfits. In spite of the fact that I am there at twilight and sunset and watch the transition of time from light to dark but everything seems so much lovelier when you watch the awakening day. Watch the faint blush light up the sky and then bloom into radiance and shine, hear the morning tweets and feel the dawning beauty. It is romantic and lovely, and nothing matters more in that moment than the beauty of it. So I’d rather stay awake when I am asleep because everything is never as it seems.
