I am the red in the rose, the flowers
On the blankets on your bedroom floor.
And I am the gray in the ghost that hides
With your clothes behind your closet door.

I am the green in the grass that bends back
From underneath your feet.
And I am the blue in your back alley view
Where the horizon and the rooftops meet.

If you cut me I suppose I would bleed the colors
Of the evening stars.
You can go anywhere you wish cause I'll be there, wherever you are.
(Wherever you are)
(Wherever you are)

(I will always meet your gaze
When we are lost in the technicolor phase)

I am the black in the book
The letters on the pages that you memorize.
And I am the orange in the overcast
Of color that you visualize.

I am the white in the walls that soak up
All the sound when you cannot sleep.
And I am the peach in the starfish on the beach
That wish the harbor wasn't quite so deep.

If you cut me I suppose I would bleed the colors
Of the evening stars. (my darling)
You can go anywhere you wish cause I'll be there
Wherever you are. (my darling)

(Wherever you are)
(Wherever you are)
(Wherever you are)

    this is my new favorite by Owl City. My top ten by Owl City is 1. The Technicolor Phase 2. Sunburn 3. Early Birdie 4. Hot Air Balloon 5. Cave In 6. The Tip of the Iceburg 7. Tidal Wave (I LUV MATT THIESSEN) 8. Dear Vienna 9. Fireflies (of course, u gotta luv that song, it's the only 1 they play on the radio, and that's probably the reason why nobody at my school likes them. The song is over played, but I sitll love it) and finally 10. Meteor Shower :) :) :)

    Usually Adam Young a love song sort of thing and its like he's telling somebody how he feels, this can be applicable by him saying Im this to you, I will always be with you. But if you Adam's life into perspective this stanza makes more sense:
    I am the white in the walls that soak up
    All the sound when you cannot sleep.
    Adam writes his songs when he can't sleep as he is insomniac, and not many people write songs in the middle of the night so its not Adam telling someone its someone telling Adam, and this means that when we take his religious beliefs into the interpretation the message is that God is telling Adam that he will always be around the world and be with him no matter what.
