lyrics

Icarus fidgeted/ he had trouble with listening
as he sat in the pews amungst the other parishioners
He heard the good word but all he saw was the girls
Could’t wait for the world to hurry up and unfurl
A little too tall for a two horse town
Mama wouldn’t let him go more than two doors down
He said, “I gotta go. Gotta run to the sea. Get as close to the sun as a boy can be.”

Let me go oh oh oh oh
If you love me let me go
Let me go oh oh oh oh
If you love me let me go
If you love me let me go
If you love me
Let me go

Icarus spit up the most ridiculus lyrics
as if he was afflicted with spirits of the mischievous
Misunderstood, he was mistook for an idiot
by all of the teachers, preachers and villagers
A little bit quick when he skipped out of town
He burned out his clutch and the truck broke down
When that grey hound bus touched down in Venice Beach
He was as close to the sun as a boy could be

Let me go oh oh oh oh
If you love me let me go
Let me go oh oh oh oh
If you love me let me go
If you love me let me go
If you love me
Let me go

Now Icarus lives in this blissful oblivion
He sings like an angel and dance like an indian
He rolls with his homies and he chills with his women friends
He know that he’s golden so he blows all his dividends
A little bit quick when he shot to the top
Felt the wax on his wings start to sizzle off and drop

Let me go oh oh oh oh
If you love me let me go
Let me go oh oh oh oh
If you love me let me go
Let me go oh oh oh oh
If you love me let me go
Let me go oh oh oh oh
If you love me let me go
If you love me let me go
If you love me
Let me go
