close to the sun lyrics – men without hats

by the light of the moon i gazed at your face
it was the middle of june or maybe in may
i looked at you and you looked away
like in a flower in bloom on a cold summer day

by the light of the moon i looked in your eyes
not a moment too soon did i realize
the world is in tune it tells you no lies
like a flower in bloom reaching up to the skies

getting close to the sun
close to the sun

say goodbye this is your time to fly
can’t find the reason why you should not go
this is your time to fly go spread your wings on high
but make sure you don’t fly too close to the sun
close to the sun

on a cold summer day you said your goodbyes
and you walked through that door for the very last time
you turned as you left and you whispered to me
always will we love and always will we be

close to the sun
close to the sun

say goodbye this is your time to fly
can’t find the reason why you should not go
this is your time to fly go spread your wings on high
but make sure you don’t fly too close to the sun

say goodbye this is your time to fly
can’t find the reason why you should not go
this is your time to fly go spread your wings on high
but make sure you don’t fly too close to the sun

close to the sun
close to the sun
close to the sun
close to the sun
