FLY FLY ICARUS
(Gavin Richardson)

Fly, Fly Icarus fly, lace on your wings and give 'em a try
No poet sings for the ones who ask why, don't you see? Oh,
Higher and higher you fly into the fire, you glide over a shimmering sea
Fly, Fly Icarus, fly free

Fly, Fly Icarus fly, a stark silhouette in a summertime sky
The wind in your hair and the clouds in your eyes, can it be? Oh,
You're soaring, you're sailing now, gloriously failing, how tragic your beauty can be!
Fly, Fly Icarus, fly free

Oooh, you can't stop it now, you're a comet now,
Blazing bravely toward the sun
Yours, the heart that yearns so bad, don't heed the
Sound of your father's cry, mortal tears will dry
When they've fallen to the ground
Yours is the heart he never had

So fly, don't you stop your flyin'
You're the better one for the tryin'
Yours is the heart he never had

You're soaring, you're sailing now, gloriously failing, how tragic your beauty can be!
Fly, Fly Icarus, fly free

Fly, Fly, Icarus fly, your wings have grown weary, your hour draws nigh
For this day you've waited, you've known it was fated to be, Oh,
Don't fear the falling, your destiny's calling you into the sun and the sea
Fly, Flu Icarus, fly free

Don't fear the falling, your destiny's calling you into the sun and the sea
Fly, Flu Icarus, fly free
