To Live Is to Fly - Townes Van Zandt
    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
    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
    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 the rhythm 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
    the sleep out of your eyes
