Icarus

Did you know I’d have asked the lord to fly?
And wiped away every tear
Every time you cried
Did you know that I’d walk 100 miles
Just to see you smile
And dream another dream tonight
I haven’t seen it in a while

Did you know I said your name
Every time you prayed
And used to turn the speakers up
Ev’ry time your song played
I’d have climbed the highest mountain
If you were on the other side
But since things won’t be the same
I won’t tell you if I’ve cried

Even Icarus with his fake wings
Did some pretty stupid things
And Venus kind of let things go
All for love if you don’t know
If we’re just here to walk this ground
And hold the treasures we have found
If forgiveness could just be a place
I’d love to see it on your face
If forgiveness is a place

You know I’d have asked the Lord to fly
Stopped what I was doing almost every time you sighed
You know that I’d take back the harshest words
Sometimes i felt i needed them
Just so I’d be heard

Did you know that I’d have scaled
Even the highest walls
Gone through the wilderness
Braved the deepest pitfalls
Did you know I’d walk through fire
If you’re on the other side
I wish you knew just how I felt
Deep down on the inside

Did you know I’d have asked the lord to fly?
And wiped away every tear
Every time you cried
Did you know that I’d walk 100 miles
Just to see you smile
And dream another dream tonight
I haven’t seen it in a while
