Song Lyric Sunday – Hot Air Balloon by Owl City

I always seem to turn to Owl City when I’m feeling down and just need some joy in my life. I especially love this song since it seems to me that it’s just about playing.

The winter months are the hardest ones for me and I know I’ve been neglecting the blog lately, but I promise I’ll get back into it once I’m done with my crochet projects and shopping and all the things that can take the joy right out of the holiday season (for me). I think the only thing that has kept me halfway sane is knowing my crochet project is for the little bundle of joy driving his mother crazy right now with his kicking and keeping her up at nights. I can’t wait to meet him.

So, for today’s installment, I give you three or so minutes of happiness and joy. I hope you enjoy! And, as alway, feel free to read the “rules” below and post one of your own. I’m having a blast sharing music with great friends in our little virtual world.

Happy Sunday, everyone!

Hot Air Balloon by Owl City
Lyrics found at AZ Lyrics

We wrote a prelude to our own fairytale.
And bought a parachute at a church rummage sale
And with a mean sewing machine and miles of thread
We sewed the day above L.A. in navy and red.
We round a racetrack through your mom’s kitchen chairs
And fought the shadows back down your dark basement stairs.
I lit a match and let it catch to light up the room.
And then you yelled as we beheld an old maroon.

Hot air balloon

I’ll be out of my mind
and you’ll be out of ideas pretty soon.
So let’s spend the afternoon
in a cold hot air balloon.
Leave your jacket behind.
Lean out and touch the tree tops over town.
I can’t wait to kiss the ground wherever we touch back down.

la la la la la la
la la la la la la

We drank the great lakes like cold lemonade.
And both got stomach aches sprawled out in the shade.
So bored to death you held your breath and I tried not to yawn.
You make my frown turn upside down and now my worries are gone.

I’ll be out of my mind
and you’ll be out of ideas pretty soon.
So let’s spend the afternoon
in a cold hot air balloon.
Leave your jacket behind
Lean out and touch the tree tops over town.
I can’t wait to kiss the ground wherever we touch back down.

I’ll be out of my mind
and you’ll be out of ideas pretty soon.
So let’s spend the afternoon
in a cold hot air balloon.
Leave your jacket behind
Lean out and touch the tree tops over town.
I can’t wait to kiss the ground wherever we touch back down.


Here are the “rules”:

  • Make sure you credit the singer/band and provide a link to where you found the lyrics
  • Link to the YouTube video, or pull it into your post so others can listen to the song

  2. Wow — a group I just don’t know enough about.
    What lovely, bouncy lyrics!
    I’ll see what dancy,dancy music I’ll choose.
    I’m not much into the holidays this year — and no new little ones on the way — so I’ve been less than festive.
    Yesterday I posted two songs from The Muppet Christmas Carol that are upbeat and catchy. If you’re not familiar with the Muppet Christmas Carol with Michael Caine as Scrooge, it’s well worth a watch. But then I have a thing for the muppet Beaker!
