"Too CLose To The Sun" as written by and David Usher....
High above your atmosphere
Do they all still cheer for who they think we are
And once more past the sun again
Feelings sinking in I think we've gone to far

And why did you fly did you burn
Can't you learn from my mistakes
I have made them so I know

Bored just one more cup of tea
All the stars and me they'll teach me how to shine
'Cause life it's so much colder here
I'll absorb your fears and bury them inside

And why did you fly did you burn
Can't you learn from my mistakes
I have made them so I know

You're too close to the sun
You're too close to the sun
You're too close to the sun
You're too close to the sun
You're too close to the sun

Things we found so lovely
Turn so ugly
I've grown nakeder day by day
It's quite disarming I find it alarming
When everybody's listening

Why did you fly did you burn
Can't you learn from what we've learned
I can't see you anymore

You're too close to the sun
You're too close to the sun
You're too close to the sun
You're too close to the sun
You're too close to the sun

    General CommentI think the guy in the song is trying to warn the other person to be careful. Hes done what the person has done and is warning them that its bad. The person he is singing about takes the form of Icarus and the guy singing the form of Icarus's father. Icarus was warned not to fly too close to the sun but he did and his wings burned. You can read it en.wikipedia.org/wiki/…
