Denying the Sun Lyrics

2018 Off-Broadway
The Boy Who Danced on Air the Musical - Denying the Sun Lyrics



[Unknown Man]
As you grow up,
your life gets clearer.
You learn your path,
And it’s direct.
You build a life,
You come to love it.
What else did you expect?

You meet your wife,
And you work with her.
If it’s not love, there’s great respect.
You raise your sheep, take wool to market.
What else did you expect?

If you once thought it'd be different.
It doesn’t matter
The autumn breezes don’t decide the way they’re blowing.
The frozen streams don’t get to choose when winter’s finally done.
The scarlet rose won’t get to change how big it’s growing.
There’s no use trying,
It’s like denying the sun.

You have a child,
Of course it scares you.
He looks like you,
You hope he’s not.
He’s all you have, one day he’ll leave you.

A child thinks that it’s different
He tells you he’ll choose his future
And change world,
But then,
The world will someday tell the boy it can’t stop turning
The frozen streams don’t get to choose when winter’s finally done.
And till we somehow reach the day when hearts stop yearning.
Or boys start flying
There’s no denying

If you have feelings you can’t contain
You’ll only suffer they’ll cause you pain
If somethings tells you change your path
You bury it,
Bury it,

Cause no one gets to choose their path
So bury it,
Bury it,
Now.

[Spoken]
[Son]
Father, what is this?

[Unknown man]
Where did you find this?

[Son]
Sorry father, it was under your bed, why is that man flying?

[Unknown man]
He’s not.

[Son]
When I grow up, I’d like to fly, just like that. Then no one can hurt me.

[Unknown man]
Give that to me.

[Sung]
[Feda]
Sing so the mountains can hear it.
Sing like you know you belong.
Sing so the tune is filled with spirit.
So deep,
And true,
And strong.
Then all the world will follow
Your song
