To Live Is To Fly Lyrics

To Live Is To Fly - Cowboy Junkies

Won't say I love you babe

 

Won't say I need you babe

 

But I'm going to get you babe

 

And I will not do you wrong

 

Living's mostly wasting time

 

And I waste my share of mine

 

But it never feels too good

 

So let's not take too long

 

I'm as soft as glass and you're a gentle man

 

We got the sky to talk about

And the world to lie upon

 

Days up and down they come

Like rain on a conga drum

Forget most remember some

But don't turn none away

 

Everything is not enough

Nothing is too much to bear

 

Where you been is good and gone

All you keep's the getting there

 

To live is to fly low and high

 

So shake the dust off of your wings

And the sleep out of your eyes

 

It's goodbye to all my friends

 

It's time to go again

 

Think of all the poetry

 

And the pickin' down the line

 

I'll miss the system here

 

The bottom's low and the treble's clear

 

But it don't pay to think too much

On the things you leave behind

 

I may be gone but I won't be long

 

I'll be bringing back the melody

And all the rhythms that I find

 

We all got holes to fill

 

And them holes are all that's real

 

Some fall on you like a storm

 

Sometimes you dig your own

 

But choice is yours to make

 

Time is yours to take

 

Some dive into the sea

 

Some toil upon the stone

 

To live is to fly low and high

 

So shake the dust off of your wings

 

And the sleep out of your eyes
