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

All the years we'd spent with feeling 
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
