'Designer Skyline' by Owl City

Since jumping on the 'Owl City' bandwagon, I have fallen in love with this song called 'Designer Skyline'. 

As an architecture student, I just love the creative and imaginative lyrics and have been listening to this whilst completing projects and drawings etc and it just seems to fitting... kind of like my theme song right now.

Check out the song below and lyrics after the jump:

Affection, the gifted architect
Is making a draft and beautiful design
The options and possibilities
Are endless when we connect and re-align
Collections of books and documents
Arise and parade around my cluttered desk
Reworking the math and measurements
Until I'm convinced these plans are picturesque
Like mountains in the Midwest

Reaction creates the columns dark
And wide like the roads around Fort Lauderdale
The structures begin to take their shape
Before I've designed the public monorail
The turnpike and high-speed motorway
Connect and enclose the quaint suburban streets
The airport, the broad suspension bridge
The lake and the beach where several rivers meet
Compounded from the spreadsheet

A city sparkles in the night
How can it glow so bright?
The neighborhoods surround the soft florescent light
Designer skyline in my head
Abstract and still well-read
You went from numbered lines to buildings overhead
