Owl City – The Honey And The Bee lyrics

Don't remind me that some days I'm the wind shield
And other days I'm just a lucky bug
These cold iron rails leave old mossy trails through the countryside
The crow and the bean field are my best friends but boy, I need a hug.
(Boy I need a hug)
'Cause my heart stops without you, there's something about you
That make me feel alive!

If the green left the grass on the other side,
I would make like a tree and leave,
But if I reached for your hand would your eyes get wide?
Who knew the other side could be so green?

Don't remind me that I'm a chickadee in love with the sky,
But, that's clearly not a lot to crow about,
'Cause when the stars silhouette me, I'm scared they'll forget me,
And flicker out.

I taste honey but I haven't seen the hive,
Yeah, I didn't look, I didn't even try,
But still my heart stops without you 'cause there's something about you,
That makes me feel alive.

If the green left the grass on the other side,
I would make like a tree and leave,
But if I reached for your hand would your eyes get wide?
Who knew the other side could be so green?
(oooh oooh oooh)
We are honey and the bee,
(oooh oooh oooh )
Backyard of butterflies surrounded me,
I fell in love with you like bees to honey,
So let's up and leave the weeping to the willow tree,
And pour out tears in the sea.

I swear, there's a lot of vegetables out there,
That crop up for air,
Yeah, I never thought, we were two peas in a pod,
Until you suddenly bloomed, then I knew
That I'd always
love you.
Oh, I'll always love you too.

If the green left the grass on the other side,
I would make like a tree and leave,
If I reached for your hand would your eyes get wide?
Who knew the other side could be so green?

If the green left the grass on the other side,
I would make like a tree and leave,
If I reached for your hand would your eyes get wide?
Who knew the other side could be so green?

And if I reached for your hand for the rest of my life,
Who knew the other side could be so green?

    This is a song about two people who have known each other for a long time, and they never really thought about each other romantically, and they have been through some rough patches in there friendship and say "don't remind me" and then she "suddenly bloomed" meaning he suddenly saw her as pretty and realizes he is interested in a romantic relationship. so they agree to leave the past in the past and leave the weeping to the willow tree. (weeping willow as in the type of tree) and as they grow in their relationship (like vegetables) he periodically asked her how she feel and their new found love and she says "who knew the other side could be so green" or saying yes she was very happy, then at the end he changed it up and asked her to marry him and again she accepts.

    To the person asking what "i would make like a tree and leave means", it's in reference to "if the green left the grass on the other side", meaning she was in an unhappy place or feeling like she was lacking, she would try to get away from that in her life and move to where "the grass is greener" so to speak, the same way a tree would leave where there is no grass if it could. So she would "make like a tree and leave" by making changes in her life if she was unhappy "the green left the grass". Very metaphorical and symbolic, but a really cool kind of analogy and poetic connection there, like many of his songs have.
