There you stood at the edge of your feather, Expecting to fly. While I laughed, I wondered whether I could wave goodbye, Knowing that you'd gone. By the summer it was healing, We had said goodbye. All the years we 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'd know I'd die. If I never said I love you, Now you know I'd try. Babe, now you know I'd try, Babe, now you know I'd try, Babe.
