lyrics

I HAD A VISION I WAS JUST A CHILD
I LOOKED AT THE SUN & SMILED
I LOOKED AT THE SUN
I WAS JUST A YOUNG DUMB SON OF A GUN
I LOOKED AT THE SUN

YEARS LATER I GOT A COUPLE SKILLS
IM PRETTY SURE I KNOW HOW TO BUILD
A MAGNIFICENT DEVICE
TO TAKE ME HIGH UP INTO THE SKY
SO I CAN TOUCH THE SUN

ILL NEED BALSA WAX & TWINE
A PENCIL & A PAD & LOTS OF WINE
& ILL DESIGN WINGS
GREAT BIG GLORIOUS THINGS
TO TAKE ME TO THE SUN

WORK FINISHED HEADED OFF TO TEST
MY WINGS AT THE HIGHEST CREST
ILL PUT THEM ON & DIVE
& FOR THE FIRST TIME ILL BE ALIVE
IM HEADED TO THE SUN

I WISH THAT I COULD FLY LIKE ICARUS
I WISH I COULD FLY LIKE ICARUS

INTO THE SUN

I WISH THAT I COULD FLY LIKE ICARUS
I WISH I COULD FLY LIKE ICARUS

I HAD A VISION I WAS JUST A CHILD
I LOOKED AT THE SUN & SMILED
