A conversation between Icarus and his father...

lyrics

Icarus

You gave me wings and taught me to fly
Not too low, and not too high
Stay close to me, stay by my side
You’re safe with me, now rise to the sky

But when the feeling takes control, there’s only me too blame
Not meant to soar, yet here I am, I’m calling out your name

I fell into the sea
This is no place to be

You gave me the rules but I made up my own
Follow me close and we’ll fly home
But the air’s so sweet across my skin
I can’t take the heat and now I’m falling in

But when the feeling takes control, there’s only me too blame
Not meant to soar, yet here I am, I’m calling out your name

I fell into the sea
This is no place to be
I wanted but to flee
There is no place for me

I fell into the sea
This is no place to be
I wanted but to flee
There is no place for me

I fell into the sea
This is no place to be
I wanted but to flee
There is no place for me
