Towards Better Democracy

Good words, well written, better the world. Good literature betters the world immeasurably.

Buffalo Springfield – Expecting to fly


Buffalo Springfield – Expecting to fly

There you stood on the edge of your feather
Expecting to fly
While I laughed I wondered whether
I could wave goodbye

Knowin’ that you’d gone
By the summer it was healing
We had said “Goodbye”
All the years we’d spent with feeling
Ended with a cry

Babe, ended with a cry
Babe, ended with a cry

I tried so hard to stand
As I stumbled and fell to the ground
So hard to laugh as I fumbled
And reached for the love I found

Knowin’ it was gone
If I never lived without you
Now you know I’d die
If I never said “I loved you”
Now you know I’d try

Babe, now you know I’d try
Babe, now you know I’d try, babe
