We were approached by an animator, to provide a song for a short film about a modern-day Icarus.. So we set to work. Unfortunately the film project fell through, but we felt the song would fit into the theme of this album - and so it stayed.



Don’t fall in love, you might get hurt
(is as good as saying)
Don’t live, you just might die.
What’s the good of finding you have wings
then being too afraid to fly?
You might say, Icarus – he went too far
His father said Don’t go so high

but in his ecstasy, his wings were lost
and he fell from the sky

Don’t let them tell you
Don’t let them tell you
That your love was all a lie

Don’t let them tell you
Don’t let them tell you
It's too dangerous to try

Don’t let them tell you
Don’t let them tell you
You can’t reach for the sky

The burning stars above are dead & in the past
Each breath we take could be our last
Better to love and lose than never love at all
to feel the ecstasy before the
before the fall…….
before the fall…
