Dylan Owen – Sail Up The Sun

Dylan Owen – Sail Up The Sun. With “Sail Up The Sun” the upcoming rapper Dylan Owen displays an emotional ode about the confusion in life and keeps the mood positive by adding a chorus about getting your head held high. As soon as Dylan starts the first verse, you can tell he is more of a spoken word poet than your typical rapper. Dylan is a rap artist from New York. With his own brand of heart-on-sleeve, confessional storytelling, he has built an undeniable fan following at a young age. As shown in his latest single, “Everything Gets Old,” his wordplay and multisyllabic patterns prove his proficiency as a rapper, while his writing feels more like that of a young storyteller who can also rhyme. Dylan left Cornell University in 2011 to develop as an artist in New York City.

A piano riff collides with a hard hitting beat in Dylan Owen‘s latest track “Sail Up the Sun.” To kick off the song, Owen’s vocals break through the static to introduce the chorus, “Sail up the sun and keep your chin held high/ If you ever lose your breathe then you can inhale mine.” The song mixes in personal experiences, longing and a deep sense of nostalgia that is instantly relatable. Soft backing vocals from Alaska Sun wind up the song neatly, leaving fans with anticipation for Owen’s upcoming EP, There’s More to Life.

Dylan Owen – Sail Up The Sun Lyrics:
[Hook: Dylan Owen]
Sail up the sun and keep your head held high
And if you ever lose your breathe
Then you can inhale mine and
When the day comes just don’t leave
Tomorrow’s gonna bring us what we both need

[Verse 1: Dylan Owen]
Everyone who knows me
Thinks that I’m so put together
Like now matter what my years will bring me
I’ll be good forever
Looking back on my path
I probably could have took it better
We wished the world away in hoodie weather
We shouldn’t have, our chapped hearts
My bliss stacks in the repairment that I showed ya
Your big steps, I figure somewhere airing out in Arizona
We both needed fixing, we both needed time
A suicide attempt later
You still had me on your mind
We laid in bed and wished this life away
Right away the road was rough
We never had the right of way
I’ll write you
You say you’ve made your peace in rehab
I make my peace through writing ways
Here’s a piece of everything I wish that I could say
Cause I don’t understand a single thing
About this life sometimes
But I’m going to fucking find a way
Knowing that my time is not today
Because I know my time is not today
I said I know our time is not today
And so I looked at her
And told her…

[Hookx2: Dylan Owen]
Sail up the sun and keep your head held high
And if you ever lose your breathe
Then you can inhale mine and
When the day comes just don’t leave
Tomorrow’s gonna bring us what we both need

[Verse 2: Dylan Owen]
So if we dig our own graves
By the time we’re 22
Then we’ll both finally see
We got a ton to lose
Whether it’s love or it’s life
Or it’s a shitty situation
Or it’s perfect
Or it’s heaven
Or it’s hell on different stations
Or it’s me or you
Chasing our little sisters through the snow
I think everyone’s allowed
To have a blister on their soul
If it wasn’t this
It would be something much worse
Old souls who never had a fighting chance
To be young first
I’ve had enough of this
If love exists
I wanna pack it up and quit this city
Leave the city for the fun of it
Find a place where we can see the stars at night
Count the constellations and
Be happy bout the seasons
If we get to watch them changing
Plot ourselves a private fort by the sea
Our own flagship location
Where I can store my dreams
And we can be safe from life
That’s simply all I need
To build something that can
Last a little longer than me
And I told her…

[Hookx5: Dylan Owen]
Sail up the sun and keep your head held high
And if you ever lose your breathe
Then you can inhale mine and
When the day comes just don’t leave
Tomorrow’s gonna bring us what we both need

Sail up the sun, Sail up the sun. Sail up the sun
