Jackson Browne - Late for the Sky (1974) Full Album
"Late For The Sky"
You never knew what I loved in you
I don’t know what you loved in me
Maybe the picture of somebody you were hoping I might be
"Fountain Of Sorrow"
I’m just one or two years and a couple of changes behind you
In my lessons at love’s pain and heartache school
There’s a world of illusion and fantasy
In the place where the real world belongs
Still I look for the beauty in songs
To fill my head and lead me on
"The Late Show"
I saw you through the laughter and the noise
You were talking with the soldiers and the boys
While they scuffled for your weary smiles
I thought of all the empty miles
And the years that I’ve spent looking for your eyes
"The Road And The Sky"
Don’t think it won’t happen just because it hasn’t happened yet
"For A Dancer"
Perhaps a better world is drawing near
And just as easily it could all disappear
Walking slow down the avenue
Through my old neighborhood
Don’t know why I’m happy
I’ve got no reason to feel this good
"Before The Deluge"
For some of them it was only the moment that mattered
And on the brave and crazy wings of youth
They went flying around in the rain
And their feathers, once so fine, grew torn and tattered
