Minnesota native Adam Young, the man behind Owl City, has lived through many freezing Januarys. According to Songfacts.com, he wrote "Planet Life" about longing for the end of winter during one of his home state's bitterly cold weather spells.
I saw a ghost on the stairs
And sheets on the tables and chairs
The silverware swam with the sharks in the sink
Even so, I don't know what to think
