expecting to fly lyrics – buffalo springfield

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
