Expecting To Fly
Buffalo Springfield Lyrics


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

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

Simply "wunderbar "..!
One of the great early works from Neil Young...
And a band studded with prominent members- later by CSN & CSN&Y!!

Very underrated here...
Timeless and haunting beautiful- a masterpiece in rockhistory...
Thanks for upload this jewel..

@Tom Brody Thank you man for your comment! It means a lot to me!

Tom Brody

Thank you for your remark. Your thoughts, tastes, and observations, are all right on target and I agree with your sentiments. I am grimacing right now, and am crying a little.

Christian Adams

God bless your Uncle, and it will be my goodbye song too!

Echo in the Canyon brought me here. Such a great song. I feel lucky to have lived in the era in which it was composed.

I’m a newer generation and I’m glad I watched Echo in the Canyon because it brought me to a great genre of music. Better than the modern garbage that we have now.

John Spear

God! After listening to this song on "Echo" I immediately ordered the album. Highly recommend movies "Yesterday" and "Blinded by the Light" to continue enjoying the music from a great era.

Sandra Webb

That was a great documentary! Great music from this era.
