Owl City – Hello Seattle lyrics

Hello Seattle, I am a mountaineer
In the hills and highlands

I fall asleep in hospital parking lots
And awake in your mouth

Hello Seattle, I am a manta ray
Deep beneath the blue waves

I'll crawl the sandy bottom of Puget Sound
And construct a summer home

Hello Seattle, I am the crescent moon
Shining down on your face

I will disguise myself as a sleeping pill
And descend inside of you

Hello Seattle, I am a cold seahorse
Feeling warm in your sand

I sing about the tide and the ocean surf
Rolling in the evening breeze

Hello Seattle, I am an albatross
On the docks and moored boats
I sail above your inlets and interstates
Through the rain and open wind

Hello Seattle, I am an old lighthouse
Throwing beams of bright lights

Red in the morning, blue in the evening sun
Taking heed for everyone

Hello Seattle, I am a mountaineer
In the hills and highlands

I fall asleep in hospital parking lots

Take me above your light
Carry me through the night
Hold me secure in flight
Sing me to sleep tonight

Take me above your light
(Hello Seattle, I am a mountaineer)
Carry me through the night

(In the hills and highlands)
Hold me secure in flight
(I fall asleep in hospital parking lots)
me to sleep tonight

    The song's basically a song about a couple and the man expressing to his girlfriend. The song itself, is quite hard to understand, but in my understanding, Seattle that was called here is more or less the partner. At first it was just creativity when I first heard it, but then, I kept my saying that everything has a meaning. So, turn it into romance, makes perfect sense! Why would Owl City write this? He must've been heartbroken that day.

    @yagami: I apologize for arguing but if you want real then go walk outside.
    The lyrics don't have to make sense so long as you know the meaning of the song. The less it makes sense, the more creative it is. Because they used these phrases to explain something much more meaningful to people. You have to look at it from a surrealist point of view. If you keep being realistic with everything, the greater cause is lost. Then you loose sight of the hidden light.

    This is a rather well-sounded, irrelevant song. I'll rate it 2 out of 5. The music sounds so calm, so peaceful indeed. However, the lyrics are nothing but repetitive nonsensical ones. People say that the meaning of this song is clearly peace. But I disagree. It's possible that Owl City wrote this out of consciousness. The lyrics, they are clearly rubbish, I'm sorry. Why do people 'fit everything in'? If you stop fitting it all in, then your blindfolds will be removed and you can see with your two eyes that this song is about nonsense! It's not that I am an Owl City hater or what. I'm just telling you the truth.
