Day In The Sun

This is my day, this is my day in the sun.
Ride the wind, oh, on this day in the sun.
I’ll have my way in the sun, on this day in the sun.

I got wings made of light.
I got a heart ready for flight.
Got two arms that don’t tire.
Got a mind set on fire.
Two eyes bigger than a TV screen.
I’m gonna ride those sunbeams,
Ride those sunbeams to you today,
Cuz this is my day, yes it is.
I’m gonna rise into the sky
Like a soul that just won’t die,
Like a spirit beyond pain
I’m gonna reach into that sweet, sweet flame
And pick me a sweeter bouquet of sunrays.
And fly back home to you...

Like Icarus.
Did he make it? Did he have a plan?
Did his arms hold? Did he find land?
The shoreline? Like your body
Always wanting more. Always wanting
More... of his day in the sun.

In the sun.
In the sun.
In the sun.
In the sun.
In the sun.

Like Icarus, in the sun.
