LyricsEdit

[Verse 1]
I didn't know what I started
I wasn't looking for a miracle
But you got me open-hearted
I wouldn't say that it's typical

[Pre-Chorus]
Your love is blinding me
Too bright, too bright to see
Too good to be believed
But I've had a taste on how it all could be

[Chorus]
Giving me beauty
Your love is the light of me
Now I'm golden
But I may be only one

The things you do to me
Would be enough to fool anyone
Now I'm golden
Taking me to the sun

[Hook]
Don't let me fall like
Icarus, icarus, icarus, icarus
Don't let me fall like
Icarus, icarus, icarus, icarus
Don't let me fall like
Icarus, icarus, icarus, icarus
Don't let me fall like
Don't let me fall too close now to the sun

[Verse 2]
We've got to far to turn back now
Is true love more than mythical?
You've got all it takes to attract now
So why am I still cynical?

[Pre-Chorus]
Your love is blinding me
Too bright, too bright to see
Too good to be believed
But I've had a taste on how it all could be

[Chorus]
Giving me beauty
Your love is the light of me
Now I'm golden
But I may be only one

The things you do to me
Would be enough to fool anyone
Now I'm golden
Taking me to the sun

[Hook]
Don't let me fall like
Icarus, icarus, icarus, icarus
Don't let me fall like
Icarus, icarus, icarus, icarus
Don't let me fall like
Icarus, icarus, icarus, icarus
Don't let me fall like
Don't let me fall too close now to the sun
