Alan Parsons Project, The - Too Close To The Sun Lyrics




There must be a thousand ways
Holding us within this maze
Every path we take leads us astray
Comfort me my only son
Till the day my work is done
There's no earthly reason we should stay

And when the wind gets under these wings
You will feel what freedom brings
Stay right by me, walk don't run
I don't want you flying too close to the sun

Turn your eyes towards the light
Steal away in silent flight
The skies are calling out to you and me
Over sea and over land
God protect us with your hand
Bring us safely to our destiny

And now the wind is under our wings
We can taste what freedom brings
Stay right by me, walk don't run
I don't want you flying too close to the sun

God forgive his fall from grace
The sea conceals his resting place
Can we learn to stay behind the line
If we have the means to fly
Some of us will surely die
Being reckless was his only crime

And now the wind is under our wings
We can taste what freedom brings
Stay right by me, walk don't run
I don't want you flying too close to the sun

    Too Close To The Sun
    Alan Parsons
    Album: On Air

    (lead vocal - Neil Lockwood)

    There must be a thousand ways
    Holding us within this maze
    Every path we take leads us astray
    Comfort me my only son
    Till the day my work is done
    There's no earthly reason we should stay

    And when the wind gets under these wings
    You will feel what freedom brings
    Stay right by me, walk don't run
    I don't want you flying too close to the sun

    Turn your eyes towards the light
    Steal away in silent flight
    The skies are calling out to you and me
    Over sea and over land
    God protect us with your hand
    Bring us safely to our destiny

    And when the wind is under these wings
    We can taste what freedom brings
    Stay right by me, walk don't run
    I don't want you flying too close to the sun

    (instrumental)

    God forgive his fall from grace
    The sea (c) conceals his resting place
    Can we learn to stay behind the line
    If we have the means to fly
    Some of us will surely die
    Being reckless was his only crime

    And when the wind is under these wings
    We can taste what freedom brings
    Stay right by me, walk don't run
    I don't want you flying too close to the sun
    Too close to the sun
    Too close to the sun

    I was never the same after coming across this masterpiece, wow just beautiful

  12. Walter Cornu

    this song is nothing less of a blessing

  13. Tomasz Toft

    Surely Icarus flew a little to high but how can that be that it was close enough to the sun to burn his wings and fall to his death. He obviously didn't reach Venus's orbit. Don't really understand this myth, but this song is amazing!

  14. alan yancey
