lyrics

★ TOO CLOSE TO THE SUN ★

AM I FLYING CLOSE FAR TOO CLOSE
WHEN THE DAY IS DONE
AND IF I SAY I'M IN LOVE WITH YOU
AM I FLYING TOO CLOSE TO THE SUN

HAVE ALWAYS KNOWN MY LIMITATIONS
IT'S A FACT THAT CAN'T BE MISSED
I'LL ALWAYS GO OUT ON A LIMB
AND YOU'RE AN ATTRACTION I CAN'T RESIST
AM I BEING RECKLESS TO GAMBLE ON SUCH A CRAZY GAME
AM I OVERCONFIDENT AND LIKE A MOTH TO A FLAME

AM I FLYING CLOSE FAR TOO CLOSE
WHEN THE DAY IS DONE
IF I SAY THAT I'M IN LOVE WITH YOU
AM I FLYING TOO CLOSE TO THE SUN
AM I FLYING CLOSE WAY TOO CLOSE
IF TOMORROW COMES
WHEN I SAY I'M IN LOVE WITH YOU
AM I FLYING TOO CLOSE TO THE SUN

WILL I MELT MY WINGS
THESE AND A THOUSAND OTHER THINGS
WILL I CRASH AN' BURN WILL I EVER LEARN

ALWAYS HAD MY UNCERTAINTIES
IF I SPEAK MY MIND TO YOU
YEAH THERE'S A DANGER IN THE AIR
THAT YOU WILL TAKE AND BREAK MY HEART IN TWO
AM I BEING RECKLESS TO GAMBLE ON SUCH A CRAZY GAME
AM I OVERCONFIDENT AND LIKE A MOTH A MOTH TO A FLAME

AM I FLYING CLOSE FAR TOO CLOSE
WHEN THE DAY IS DONE
IF I SAY I'M IN LOVE WITH YOU
AM I FLYING TOO CLOSE TO THE SUN

WILL I MELT MY WINGS
THESE AND A THOUSAND OTHER THINGS
WILL I CRASH AN' BURN WILL I EVER LEARN

I'LL NEVER KNOW UNLESS I TRY
A LEAP OF FAITH AND HOPE TO FLY
IF I NEVER TRY UNTIL I KNOW
WILL I EVER LET GO

HEY HEY HEY YEAH FLYING TOO CLOSE TO THE SUN
AM I FLYING TOO CLOSE TO THE SUN I'M IN LOVE WITH YOU
AM I FLYING TOO CLOSE TO THE SUN
AM I FLYING TOO CLOSE I'M IN LOVE WITH YOU
FLYING TOO CLOSE TO THE SUN
I'M IN LOVE WITH YOU
WILL I MELT MY WINGS
FLYING TOO CLOSE TO THE SUN
FLYING TOO CLOSE TO THE SUN
TOO CLOSE TO THE SUN
TOO CLOSE TO THE SUN
