Through the glass in my bedroom window
In the bushes far below
I thought I saw an unfamiliar shadow
Among the ones I so clearly know

I've been sleeping with the nightlight unplugged
With a note on the rocking chair
That says "I'm dreaming of the life I once loved
So wake me if you're out there..."

Living close to the ground
Is seventh heaven 'cause there are angels all around
Among my frivolous thoughts
I believe there are beautiful things seen by the astronauts
So wake me if you're out there!

In the dust on my cellar staircase
A pair of footprints followed me
I saw a flicker in the fake fireplace
Blinked again but there was nothing to see

I've been leaving all the windows unlocked
With a basket by the oak tree
'Cause I'll be picking up the acorns that fall off
If you'll be climbing up to meet me

Living close to the ground
Is seventh heaven 'cause there are angels all around
Among my frivolous thoughts
I believe there are beautiful things seen by the astronauts
So wake me if you're out there!

I keep my knees black and blue 'cause they often hit the hardwood floor
And I believe so I'm not praying to the ceiling anymore

I've been sleeping with the nightlight unplugged
With a note on the rocking chair
That says "I'm dreaming of the life I once loved
So wake me up if you're out there..."

Living close to the ground
Is seventh heaven 'cause there are angels all around
Among my frivolous thoughts
I believe there are beautiful things seen by the astronauts
The indications reveal
That few of us realize life is quite surreal
So if you're dying to see
I guarantee there are angels around your vicinity

    I think this song is about the wonderful things of life that goes on and some times dreams are really happy that they turn in to dust I just think its a adventure to run and play so its just this song makes me happy all the time and I just want to be just like Adam Young with synthpop and other things so that's what I think about this song just makes me happy the end.
