lyrics

Verse 1
Icarus tell me where’d you get those wings
I’m keen to see why birds truly sing
Your Daddy gave them to you but you never worked hard
You ran before you crawled right from the start
Daddy always loves you, but now he cries
You used to be the apple, now the tear in his eyes
It’s said confidence comes just before the fall
But without it, you never would have flown at all

Chorus
So tell me Icarus, because you got so high
Did the light scold you, and did it blind your eyes?
Before it burnt your wings, and you began to fall
Did you want it easy, were you afraid to crawl?
Hey Yah, Hey Yah, hey yah
Hey yah, hey yah, hey yah

Verse 2
Icarus, come on lend me a hand
I don’t wanna be a product of another man
I gotta make my own wings
And I, wish that the days were longer
I burnt my candle at both ends
Sometimes my mind just wanders, reminiscing ‘bout the time I had no friends
Sitting in my tiny thatch chair, gunna turn it into a throne
I’m going to walk with the Kings

Chorus
So tell me Icarus, because you got so high
Did the light scold you, and did it blind your eyes?
Before it burnt your wings, and you began to fall
Did you want it easy, were you afraid to crawl?
Hey Yah, Hey Yah, hey yah
Hey yah, hey yah, hey yah

Bridge
So tell me Icarus, now that we’re alone
Did you really fall, or exceed us all?
Did you keep on flying, past the sunset, past the Gods?
Into history, against the odds, into our hearts?
Oh and I’m not falling, into nothing
And I’m not hurting just like they say…
But it hurts to crawl, it hurts to crawl, I’m not falling I’m not afraid at all (x4)

Chorus
Hey Ya, hey ya, Hey ya
Hey ya, hey ya, hey ya
Hey ya, hey hey hey, goodbye
Na na na na, na na na na, Hey hey hey, goodbye
Na na na na, na na na na, Hey hey hey, goodbye
Na na na na, na na na na, Hey hey hey, goodbye
