"Townes Van Zandt"

I love everything Townes Van Zandt ever made. This is just one of my favourites.

 

TO LIVE IS TO FLY

 

(...)

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

You're as soft as glass and I'm 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

 

(TOWNES VAN ZANDT)
