Mercury

(Intro)

Have you ever felt like you're going

to fall?

I felt like I should fly

(Verse 1)

I put on my spacesuit

Said goodbye to my loved ones

I guess I'll be on the news

But it won't matter anyway

(Chorus)

Got a little close to the sun today

Mercury's rising

Mercury's rising,

Got a little close to the sun today

Mercury's rising

Mercury's rising

(Verse 2)

I climbed in my spaceship

And battened the hatches

I took this bird for a spin

But it won't matter anyway

(Corus)

Got a little close to the sun today

Mercury's rising

Mercury's rising,

Got a little close to the sun today

Mercury's rising

Mercury's rising

(Bridge)

I can see the light

Or is it the fire?

I guess I'll find out soon enough,

Climbing higher and higher

The air getting lighter

As blackness begins to engulf

(Verse 3)

I went for a spacewalk

And I was not tethered

Didn't intend to return

Cos it won't matter anyway

(Chorus)

Got a little close to the sun today

Mercury's rising

Mercury's rising,

Got a little close to the sun today

Mercury's rising

Mercury's rising

(Outro)

Crash landed

Smashed in a wall

Tried to fly

I was destined to fall
