Vanilla Twilight by “Owl City”

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 it’s not the same without you
          Because it takes two to whisper quietly

The silence isn’t so bad
     ‘Til 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 that I knew
     But I swear I won’t forget you
          Oh, if my voice could reach
               Back through the past
                    I’d whisper in your ear
                         Oh darling, I wish you were here
