Alan Guno – Icarus lyrics

Ages ago, you saw him falling
You shook your heads, and you called it a great loss
Smug with your pride, you gave him pity
You couldn’t believe the cost

You wouldn’t see, he was not like you
He chose to break the chains of his own fear
Why would he drop to his knees to pray
When he rose to God’s ear

You couldn’t hear – his heart beating faster
Angels they know to answer the call
Only those – who chase the sunrise
Will ever fall

She'd no more tears for the boy who would fly high
Waste no more words on his failure
Rising above even his own existenc
Forever immortal, while blazing the earth

Whoa oh
Remember this warning
Whoa oh
Remember his story

Even today, you are his judges
You with your scorn and your feet on the cold ground
You are the prisoners, you are the foolish
You laughed as he broke his bounds

You couldn’t hear – the sound of his singing
Angels they know the lesson too well
Death is most cruel to those with no story
No story to tell

She'd no more tears for the boy who would fly high
Waste no more words on his failure
Rising above even his own existence
Forever immortal, while blazing the earth, so just

Save all your fears for your own timid passions
You who looked so small in his eyes
Morning will rise on a story that’s retold
A legend reborn, a legend reborn in the skies

Which of you – would not trade places with
Him to know – just what the sky felt like
Whose life – can rise to greatness
That won’t risk the fall

Whoa oh
Remember this warning
Whoa oh
Remember his story
Whoa oh
Be afraid to die
Without touching
Without touching the sky

She'd no more tears for the boy who would fly high
Waste no more words on his failure
Rising above even his own existence
Forever immortal, while blazing the earth, so just

Save all your fears for your own timid passions
You who looked so small in his eyes
Morning will rise on a story that’s retold
A legend reborn, a legend reborn in the skies

Caution to those who see fault in this story
Flaws that are fatal are lies
Morning will rise on a story that’s retold
A legend reborn, a legend reborn in the skies
A legend reborn in the skies
A legend reborn in the skies

Whoa oh
Remember this warning
Whoa oh
Remember his story
Whoa oh
Be afraid to die
Without touching
Without touching the sky
