lyrics

Icarus

I’m on my way down
to the seaside
and as i fall through the sky
the clouds pass before my eyes
And I think it’s time
time to die

And all the memories i’ve got
they’ve got nothing on this moment
and all the things that I’m not
disappeared instantly
cos I’ve been breathing
but this is living

My heart sings
as my wings begin to burn
the swell it brings
this is a freedom you can’t earn
down below
I hear my father cry
‘Why?
Icarus, you aimed to high.’

My mama told me:
‘Pride comes before a fall’
My daddy told me:
‘Boy, you can have it all’
will they remember me now dad?
as the boy who drowned

I will never sail the world
and I will never kiss a girl
I won’t make my father proud
and I will never sing out loud
cos I’m the boy who touched the sun
I’m the boy who touched the sun
I’m the boy who touched the sun
