Owl City – Beautiful Times lyrics

A spark soaring down through the pouring rain
And restoring life to the lighthouse
A slow motion wave on the ocean stirs
My emotion up like a rain cloud

When did the sky turn black?
And when will the light come back?

A cab driver, turned to sky diver
Then to survivor, dying to break down
A blood brother, surrogate mother
Huggin' each other, cryin' their eyes out

When did the sky turn black?
And when will the light come back?
I'm ecstatic like a drug addict
Locked in the attic strung out and spellbound

I fought all through the night
Oh, oh but I made it alive
The sun's startin' to rise
Oh, oh these are beautiful times


This fight of my life is so hard,
So hard, so hard
But I'm gonna survive
Oh, oh these are beautiful times

(Lindsey Stirling solo)

A bad feeling burned through the ceiling,
Leaving my healing hard with a new scar.
A dead fire rose and rose higher,
Like a vampire, up from the graveyard


When did the sky turn black?
And when will the light come back?
We all suffer, but we recover,
Just to discover life where we all are

I fought all through the night
Oh, oh but I made it alive
The sun's startin' to rise
Oh, oh these are beautiful times


This fight of my life is so hard,
So hard, so hard
But I'm gonna survive
Oh, oh these are beautiful times

This fight of my life is so hard,
So hard, so hard
But I'm gonna survive
Oh, oh these are beautiful times

My heart's burning bad, and it's turning black
But I'm learning how to be stronger
And sincerely, I love your dearly,
Oh, but I'm clearly destined to wander

    I feel like this song is about the effects of war. "A cab driver to sky diver to survivor" means a normal man is drafted in a war and survives. "Blood brother, surrogate mother" refers to his families and friends that he has to leave behind. To the persona (the soldier), life is dark and bleak. The "fight of my life" refers to the war he has to fight. Sunrise represents the end of the war and new hope for him.
