lyrics

Icarus was a boy with wings.
He touched the open sky.
With wax and feathers and a bit of string
he wore the chance to try.
Oh, everyone knows he fell.
Yes, that's the part they tell.
But something else is true.
Before he fell, he flew.

In the canvas stands a plowing man,
shepherds and ships at sea.
They take no notice of the falling boy
and his small tragedy.
Oh, everyone turns away
from his forsaken cry.
Are we so afraid that we might
fly too high?

We're old enough that we both know
how this story could end.
Both of us have tried and failed,
tried and tried again.

Now we stand by the fire and say these vows and pray the words hold true.
Will this love melt away or last our whole lives through?
Oh baby, put on your wings.
Let's jump out to the sun.
Our fears will melt away.
This flight has just begun.
Icarus.

Icarus was a boy with wings.
He touched the open sky.
