This is an easy song to play, just listen to it to get the rhythm or play it however you 
want around these chords! Pretty sure they're all correct :)

I think the chorus sounds better with a D/F# rather than just a D but either makes sense 
and D is a little easier to play.


[Intro]

Em         C       D
Ohhh oh oh oh ohhh ohhh
Em         C       D
ohhh oh oh oh ohhh ohhh


[Verse]

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

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


[Chorus]

Em         C         G            D
Icarus is flying to close to the sun
Em       C            G          D
Icarus' life, it has only just begun

It's just begun

Em        C       D
ooh oh oh oh ohh ohh


[Verse 2]

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

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


[Chorus]

Em          C        G            D
Icarus is flying to close to the sun
Em       C           G           D
Icarus' life, it has only just begun
Em             C               G   D
This is how it feels to take a fall
Em         C        G              D
Icarus is flying towards an early grave


[Bridge]

C                                D
Put up your defences when you leave
Em                         G
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
         Em                    G
And you leave because you're certain
    C              D
Of who you want to be, ohhh


[Chorus]

Em          C        G            D
Icarus is flying to close to the sun
Em       C           G           D
Icarus' life, it has only just begun
Em             C               G   D
This is how it feels to take a fall
Em         C        G              D
Icarus is flying towards an early grave

Em          C    D
oohh oh oh ohh ohhh   x2

I like a B7 right after "You put up your defences when you leave", but that could just be me!
