Intro: Gmaj7  D/F#  Em  Em (2x)

                Cadd9
It's the Icarus wind,
     D           Em     Em
it's blowing in my eyes
                Cadd9
It's the Icarus wind,
     D                Em    Em
it's telling me those lies

                       G    D/F#
And its heart is like ice
                Em      Em
its fingers are long
                  G              
And it knows just who'll be torn
D/F#              Em     Em
apart by that windsong

                Gmaj7  D/F#  Em  Em
It's the Icarus wind
                Cadd9
It's the Icarus wind,
D                  Em   Em
blowing through my hair
                Cadd9
It's the Icarus wind
D             Em     Em
loosening the threads
                     G
And, my God, it will stop you
      D                   Em     Em
right there, dead in your tracks
                      G 
If you're just held together
     D               Em    Em
with hope and candle-wax

                       Gmaj7  D/F#  Em  Em
(2x)   It's the Icarus wind

                  Gmaj7    D/F#
And the higher it pulls me up, 
              Em     Em
the hotter it gets
                    Gmaj7            D
It's the end of the dream around mid fire
         Em     Em
and cigarettes

                Cadd9
It's the Icarus wind
D                  Em    Em
blowing through my ears
                Cadd9
It's the Icarus wind
D                  Em     Em
dusting away those tears

                  G
Singing, baby the truth is
     D/F#               Em    Em
that this won't hurt at all
                      G
Soon there'll just be feathers
        D/F#         Em    Em
and the quiet of the fall

                       Gmaj7  D/F#  Em  Em
(3x)   It's the Icarus wind
