Michael Jeffery – Farewell Icarus lyrics

I wrote to you a letter, but penned a farewell song,
For knowing life is better, by knowing someone like you.
A voice for all of nature, a song that natures due,
We need you more then ever, Godspeed my friend who flew.

From California to the Colorado Rocky Mountains,
You left your wax wings in Monterey.
You're going home now to your rivers and your forest,
With a full moon shining and friends you left along the way.

Forever a tribute in Snowmass Colorado,
And land at Lake Clark in Alaska too.
Where deer can play in wonder and antelope can gather,
To frolic in the wilderness, for all our children to view.


Eagle and hawks have wings that sore to heaven,
But you don't need them now, your spirit has found a way.
Your voice now lives forever, in our hearts we sing a new song,
We need you more then ever, Godspeed my friend who flew.

Chorus 2X
