Track Name: Icarus - Timetide
What will I do when the tide takes me
further out to sea than I care to be?
Go a little further where the shade is dark
go a little further you might find your heart.

CHORUS
Time will do its own thing anyway, anyway
the trick is not to get lost in the day to day
find your way and feel your way.

People act strange and they mislead the way
it’s only when you turn around you see you’ve strayed
So open up your arms and I will carry you
when things are too hard to comprehend in full

CHORUS
What will I do when the tide takes me
further out to sea than I care to be?
So open up your arms and I will carry you
when things are too hard to comprehend in full

CHORUS
Track Name: Icarus - Sundown
I met you in the wintertime
the hardest time of all
warmth and hope surrounded us
And dreams consumed our souls
And when the sun goes down
I’ll wait until the axis spins us back around
And when the sun goes down.
In spring we shared the sweetest times
we danced away the pain
of broken dreams from former lives
those shadows still remained
And when the sun goes down
I’ll wait until the axis spins us back around
And when the sun goes down.
I hurt in the summertime, the summertime
your love was not to blame
but shadows had surrounded us, surrounded us
And tempted me away
And when the sun goes down
I’ll wait until the axis spins us back around
And when the sun goes down.
I left you in the autumntime
I couldn’t face the pain
I knew I’d done the cruelest thing, the cruelest thing
but still I turned away
And when your sun goes down
I’ll wait until the axis spins us back around
And when your sun goes down.
Track Name: Icarus - Waiting
I feel tired and I feel lonely
I need somewhere to rest my head
I’d like to be surrounded
by your heartbeat
Not needing to move to feel you’re there

CHORUS
Cause I’ve been waiting all day to see you
Just to check that it’s ok
And I’ve been waiting all day
to hold you
And make things right

I kiss your lips that once were angry
angry once
I look your eyes to see what they say
what they say
I reach out I’d like to touch you
you know I’ll touch you
And listen to your words
to hear how you feel

CHORUS

Hold on to your dreams
you don’t let yourself have
you know you had those dreams
Hold on to your dreams
you don’t let yourself have
oh hold on tight
Wait until tomorrow
until the sun come up
you know the sun will come up
Wait until tomorrow to see what to do
Cause I’ve been waiting all day to see you
Don’t want another fight
And I’ve been waiting all day to hold you
I’ve got to make things right
I’ve been waiting all day to see you
And make things right
Track Name: Icarus - Wiser (acoustic version)
Oh wisdom you made me
lose the sweetness in my charms
And time you let me see
how different things were in my world
This is my world, this is my world
But I’ll sleep where I want to
Go where I’m going
Be who I am
I’ll lie if I need to
Kiss who I want to
And always speak my mind
Inside of me I will be free
Inside of me.
And in my past I once was stronger
before I picked up all this mess
And in my past I once was louder
but now I’ve reached this quiet distress
This quiet distress, this quiet distress
But I’ll sleep where I want to
Go where I’m going
Be who I am
I’ll lie if I need to
Kiss who I want to
And always speak my mind
Inside of me I will be free
Inside of me.
We do not fear what we can’t feel
So maybe you’re not that brave
You’re not that brave
But I’ll sleep where I want to
Go where I’m going
Be who I am
I’ll lie if I need to
Kiss who I want to
Go where I’m going I’ll do what I’m doing now
Sleep where I want to I’ll go where I’m going
I’ll lie if I need to I’ll do what I’m doing
Inside of me
I will be free to do what I’ve gotta do
I will be free to say what I want to say
I will be free to act how I need to act
I’ll still be free.
Track Name: Simon de Voil - One more time
Take my hand and come with me
We’ll forget about the way it is tonight
There’s nothing left to say
Nothing to make our past go away
Cause the way it is ain’t easy
And you’ve found yourself
another way to be
If there was anything I could ever do
You know I would have
Take my hand and come with me
And we’ll be lovers for just one more
time, for a while
Doesn’t really matter
where you’ve been
How many other people’s ceilings
you have seen recently
Cause the way it is ain’t easy
And you’ve found yourself
another way to be
If there was anyone I could ever be
You know I would have
So take my hand and come with me
And we’ll forget about
the way it is tonight
Track Name: Icarus - Didn't mean to
Didn’t mean to climb so high
didn’t know I’d get so lost
what’s the good of your loving
if it just hurts me
what’s the reason to stay now
if you don’t really want me
baby I love you
more than I can say
Didn’t mean to stray so long
didn’t know you’d crash and burn
what’s the good of your loving
if it can’t reach me
what’s the reason to stay now
if you don’t want to hold me
baby I want you
more than I can say
Didn’t mean to climb so high
didn’t know I’d fall so hard
what’s the good of your loving
if it just hurts me
what’s the point of being with you
if you don’t really want me
baby I love you,
more than I can say....to you
Track Name: Icarus - Kisses
She doesn’t speak
she kisses me instead
And through her touch
I feel the words
that she’s not said to me
Take care of me and I’ll let you free
Be gentle with me and then
I’ll let you breathe, I’ll let you breathe
Familiar stranger
won’t you stay the night?
Familiar stranger
won’t you stay another night
here with me?
Cause I know so many things about you
that there’s not been time for
And I feel so many things about you
that I just know it’s true
I know you’re true
She doesn’t speak
she kisses me instead
And through her touch
I feel the words
that she’s not said to me
If this was fair on me
then I wouldn’t feel this way
If you were true to me
then maybe I could breathe
that I could breathe
She kisses me
but the feeling’s not the same
She injected sorrow
to my love song and my verse
oh poor me
Poor, poor me
Cause I know
too many things about you
that I don’t want to know
And I feel
the pain of all your recklessness
and sex appeal
It’s not fair, it’s not me
She doesn’t speak
She kisses me instead
She kisses me.
Track Name: Icarus - Riverside
[Simon]
"Think I might go for a walk right now
you could follow me
down by the river
and if you'd like to get close to me
we could kiss just now
we could talk a while
it's so tranquil here."
[Michelle]
"And I will follow you
and I will Follow you
till you bar my way." Simon
"I think I might go for a walk right now
down by the riverside with you
I'm going down the riverside
going to work out my mind
will I find my way?" Michelle
"I will follow till you bar my way"
Track Name: Icarus - Reasoned leaving
I thought I’d be used to this by now
useless, frustrated loneliness
with time it will lapse into normality
funny but I don’t remember
my feelings before

CHORUS
And I understand your decision
your logic is totally okay
but no amount of reason
will change my feelings
and all the anguish still remains
my baby darling
come hold me for a while.

So what, so what happens now?
I’ve given you the ammunition
to shoot us down
down, down on the ground
where it’s cold
it’s cold enough already in here
And I understand your decision
your logic is totally okay
but no amount of reason
could change my feelings
now all the hurt’s out on display
my baby darling, go turn your eyes away
just look the other way
my baby darling, go turn your eyes away
just walk the other way.
Track Name: Simon de Voil - Peter pan
I’m Peter Pan
and I’ve always been this way
An accidental real life fairytale
Frog that turned to Prince
with month and year
Peter Pan inside me, he knows
Everything about me, he says
“hey it’s really time you let me go”
Everything I have I’ll give him
Lay it at his feet there for him
Everything I know and all I own
It’s time to live life, to do this, to grow
Sacrifice my voice to please you
Lay it at your feet before you
Everything I know and all I own
Little Boy I know you and I’ll do
Anything to help you, give you
Everything you need to let you grow
It’s time to do this, to live life, to go
Peter Pan inside me, he knows
Everything about me, he says
“hey it’s really time you let me go”
Everything I have I’ll give him
Lay it at his feet there for him
Everything I know and all I own
It’s time, to do this, to live life, to go
I’m Peter Pan
and I’ve always been this way
An accidental real life fairytale
The Mermaid who gave
all her specialness to join mankind
To join mankind
Track Name: Simon de Voil - Blue ocean
Blue ocean full of feeling
Hold onto the gentle patience in her eyes
You're worth so much more than
You could ever, ever realise
Time will carry you, flash back to
All the horrors lodged behind your eyes
You're worth life fight back with
All the anger you ever felt inside
Your worth life, life
She holds me, so closely
Tells me all the secret sorrows of her sighs
And you're worth so much more than
You could ever, ever realise
Blue ocean full of feeling
Hold onto the gentle patience in her eyes
You're worth so much more than
You could ever, ever realise
Cause you're worth life, life.
Track Name: Simon de Voil - Funny kinda guy
I’m a funny kinda guy
I’m a gentle kinda guy
You know life is strange
And maybe I don’t see
Things the same as you
Try not to judge
And you might find
People have less to hide
I’m a lucky kinda guy
I’m a lonesome kinda guy
I’m a dykey kinda guy
I’m a curvy kinda guy
Be true to me
Be true and you might hear me
When I’m changing, when I change my sides
Cause I’m a funny kinda guy
Track Name: Icarus - Wiser (band version)
Oh wisdom you made me
lose the sweetness in my charms
And time you let me see
how different things were in my world
This is my world, this is my world
But I’ll sleep where I want to
Go where I’m going
Be who I am
I’ll lie if I need to
Kiss who I want to
And always speak my mind
Inside of me I will be free
Inside of me.
And in my past I once was stronger
before I picked up all this mess
And in my past I once was louder
but now I’ve reached this quiet distress
This quiet distress, this quiet distress
But I’ll sleep where I want to
Go where I’m going
Be who I am
I’ll lie if I need to
Kiss who I want to
And always speak my mind
Inside of me I will be free
Inside of me.
We do not fear what we can’t feel
So maybe you’re not that brave
You’re not that brave
But I’ll sleep where I want to
Go where I’m going
Be who I am
I’ll lie if I need to
Kiss who I want to
Go where I’m going I’ll do what I’m doing now
Sleep where I want to I’ll go where I’m going
I’ll lie if I need to I’ll do what I’m doing
Inside of me
I will be free to do what I’ve gotta do
I will be free to say what I want to say
I will be free to act how I need to act
I’ll still be free.
