Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga'hoole

A shortened rendition of the song is played at around 52 minutes into the film, first started by Twilight playing his lute. The song plays over a montage of Soren, Gylfie, Twilight, and Digger taking part in chaw practices, socializing, and getting to know the Great Tree. When the song ends, the scene cuts to The Beaks, where Metal Beak is addressing his Pure One soldiers.

The song is played again in its entirety during the credits.

The music video shows Adam picking up an old film reel labeled "LEGEND OF THE GUARDIANS" and loading it into an old movie projector, turning it on. The screen cuts to various clips from the movie. The video alternates between showing scenes from the film and showing scenes of Adam operating the camera equipment, writing down the lyrics to the song, recording the backing track and finally the vocals. At the end of the video, Adam appears to abruptly transform into an owl himself, with feathers flying through the air and an Eagle Owl left sitting on his stool.

Lyrics

Da-da, da-da, da da da da d-da da-ah [x2]

.

Shipwreck in a sea of faces

There's a dreamy world up there

Dear friends in higher places

Carry me away from here

.

Travel light, let the sun eclipse you

'Cause your flight is about to leave

And there's more to this brave adventure

Than you'd ever believe

.

Bird's-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 (you take to the sky)

.

On the heels of war and wonder

There's a stormy world up there

You can't whisper above the thunder

But you can fly anywhere

.

Purple burst of paper birds

This picture paints a thousand words

So take a breath of myth and mystery

And don't look back

.

Bird's-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 (you take to the sky)

.

There's a realm above the trees

Where the lost are finally found

So touch your feathers to the breeze

And leave the ground

.

Bird's-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

(you take to the sky) [2x]
