LIVIN’ TO FLY
(written by Kirby Brown and Beau Bedford)

 

You only buy soft pack cigarettes and red underwear

You sit every morning and read the town obituaries, braiding your hair

You tell me you’re dying to get out but you can’t get away from here

 

You say “I ain’t asking for much, I just want to be touched,

I want to howl in the night

I ain’t asking for much, just give me enough so I can get by

I’ve been living to fly”

 

I’ve been in every juke joint and diner from Memphis to here

But none of these pin-curl princesses and working people lend me an ear

It looks like I’m looking for Forever, but I ain’t gonna find It here

 

But, baby I ain’t asking for much, I just want to be touched,

I want to howl in the night

I ain’t asking for much, just give me enough so I can get by

I’ve been living to fly, living to fly

 

I’ve got nine lives I can’t remember, and a past you can’t forget

 

But I ain’t asking for much, I just want to be touched,

I want to howl in the night

I ain’t asking for much, just give me enough so I can get by

I’ve been living to fly, living to fly, living to fly
