There is many a child born into this world

With not the chance to dream

A life without meaning no sun for them gleaming

What an unfortunate life that would be

My son in this life you must work for your chance

Go and build your wings out of wax

Go and fly for the sky, with the seagulls fly high

Though you may never find your way back

Oh little boy Icarus fly to the sun

Take your life and your dreams and turn them to one

And if your wings should melt and your body shall fall

Remember 'twas better than never flying at all

While strolling the streets on a cold winter day

I was told that which I'll never forget

It came from the old man that lay in my way

A tale of sorrow and regret

He said "When I was a child, I dreamed for the stars

Though I never sought to make it come true

Keep your feet on the ground and you'll never go far

You must fly to make your dreams come true

Now son I have slaved for you many a day

Working hard at my humble old bench

Building wings out of wax that can fly you away

You must go there's a wind you must catch

Oh little boy Icarus fly to the sun

Take your life and your dreams and turn them to one

And if your wings should melt and your body shall fall

Remember 'twas better than never flying at all

Now my body grew old and my spirit grew weak

After many a sad lonesome year

For my little boy Icarus took to the sky

And it lead him far away from here

I know not what became of that boy I once knew

My own boy I loved and adored

I know not if he died, or if he grew

I know not if he fell or he soared

But I went to the valley to lay down and die

I said me my prayers and I looked to the sky

And I swear I saw a boy on wings pass clouds by

He winked and smiled and continued to fly

A smile crossed my face, and then happy I died

Oh little boy Icarus fly to the sun

Take your life and your dreams and turn them to one

And if your wings should melt and your body shall fall

Remember 'twas better than never flying at all

Oh little boy Icarus fly to the sun

Take your life and your dreams and turn them to one

And if your wings should melt and your body shall fall

Remember 'twas better than never dreaming at all
