Birds-eye view, awake the stars ’cause they’re all around you
Wide eyes will always brighten the blue
Chase your dreams, and remember me, sweet bravery
’Cause after all those wings will take you up so high
So bid the forest floor goodbye as you race the wind and
Take to the sky…
— Owl City, “Take To The Sky”
The pop/rock band Owl City lives up to the folklore of a wise old owl in its lyrics here to “Take To The Sky.” The song reminds us that opportunities and the good things in life are always around us, if our eyes are wide enough to see them. It also reminds us that our values are worth fighting for, and that we must arm ourselves with the bravery required to spread our wings and take to the sky in search of achievement.
