I stand on the cliffs with my son next to me;
This island our prison, our home.
And everyday we look out at the sea;
This place is all he's ever known.
But I've got a plan and some wax and some string;
Some feathers I stole from the birds.
And we leap from the cliff and we hear the wind sing a song that's too perfect for words.
But son, please keep a steady wing;
You know you're the only one that means anything to me.
Steer clear of the sun, or you'll find yourself in the sea
Now safely away, I let out a cry
That we'll make the mainland by noon.
But Icarus climbs higher still in the sky;
Maybe I've spoken too soon.
Oh son, please keep a steady wing
And know you're the only one who means anything to me
Won't you look at your wings?
They're coming undone; they're splitting at the seams.
Steer clear of the sun; for once won't you listen to me?
(There's a little melodic riff here that repeats for a long time, but I don't do tabs
putting the notes would probably just confuse everyone, so moving along...)
Oh gods, why is this happening to me?
All I wanted was a new life, for my son to grow up free.
And now you took the only thing that meant anything to me.
I will never fly again; I will hang up my wings
