Bastille - Icarus: chords

 C
Look who's digging their own grave,
that is what they all say
         Em               D
You'll drink yourself to death
 C
Look who makes their own bed,
lies right down within it
 Em                 D
What will you have left?

Out on the front doorstep,
drinking from a paper cup
You won't remember this
Living beyond your years,
acting out all their fears
You feel it in your chest

      C                  G
Your hands protect the flames,
          Em               D
from the wild winds around you

Chorus:
Em          C          G            D
Icarus is flying too close to the sun
Em       C           G            D
Icarus' life, it has only just begun
             Em
It's just begun

Standing on the cliff face,
highest fall you'll ever grace
It scares me half to death
Look out to the future,
but it tells you nothing
So take another breath

Your hands protect the flames
From the wild winds around you

Chorus:
Icarus is flying
Too close to the sun
And Icarus' life
It has only just begun
This is how it feels
To take a fa-a-all
Icarus is flying
Towards an early grave

        C                      D
Put up your defences when you leave
     B/D#                 Em
You leave because you're certain
     C              D
Of who you want to be
        C                               D
You're putting up your armour when you leave
         B/D#                 Em
And you leave because you're certain
     C              D
Of who you want to be, ohhh

Chorus:
Icarus is flying
Too close to the sun
And Icarus' life
It has only just begun
This is how it feels
To take a fa-a-all
Icarus is flying
Towards an early grave
