Flight Of Icarus

From Maiden World Live

As the sun breaks above the ground, an old man stands on the hill
As the ground warms to the first rays of light, a bird song shatters the still
His eyes are ablaze, see the madman in his gaze

Chorus:
Fly, on your way, like an eagle, fly as high as the sun
On your way, like an eagle, fly and touch the sun

Now the crowd breaks and a young boy appears, looks the old man in the eye
As he spreads his wings and shouts at the crowd, in the name of God my father I'll fly
His eyes seem so glazed as he flies on the wings of a dream
Now he knows his father betrayed, now his wings turn to ashes to ashes his grave

Chorus

Solo

Fly, on your way, like an eagle, fly as high as the sun
On your way, like an eagle, fly as high as the sun
On your way, like an eagle, fly toward the sun
On your way, like an eagle, fly.....

Solo

Fly as high as the sun
