Icarus

lyrics

flew so close to the sun that I could almost touch it
didn’t end up among the stars, but now who knows if I even wanted it
did I even want it?
got so hot with the heat that I could almost breathe it
thought I’d catch with the sweetest spark, but now who knows if I even wanted it
did I even want it?

maybe that’s as high as I’m ever gonna get
maybe it’s time to get easy, get grounded
maybe I was on the wrong plane the whole time
shoulder to shoulder with the birds in the low lit sky

got so close to your face that I could almost taste it
memorized all your shapes and sounds, but now who knows if I even wanted it
did I even want it?
got so high on the thrill that I could only feel it
dark & drinking the saddest swill, but now who knows if I even wanted it
did I even want it?

maybe that’s as close as I’m ever gonna get
maybe it’s time to get lonely, get haunted
maybe I was on the wrong train the whole time
shoulder to shoulder with the pack running in the moonlight

I can see you moving in the dark
spinning sorcery in the stars

& maybe that’s as far as I’m ever gonna get
maybe it’s time to get simple, get gutted
maybe I was in the wrong lane the whole time
shoulder to shoulder with my grief under pastel skies
