Song Description

Looking back on life. Dedicated to David Crosby.

Broadjam Member Reviews

Very nice 70s feel to this, with outstanding blend on the instruments and a fun story-song lyric. David Crosby's one of my musical heroes anyway, so I'm particularly fond of the back story. I think the instrumental version of this could easily find its way into TV or film backgrounds. Well done.

Lyrics

Hey David you don't know me
But I've known you since Page 43
Like you I've been 8 miles high
Stared into the space where grown men cry
But I've survived since then
Looking back I'd probably do it all over again
I survived like you my friend
Well deja vu, I 'm listening to "Page 43" again.

Back in college I heard you and Graham play
Your stories and those harmonies blew the room away
We snuck down to the orchestra pit
Where a guy from backstage brought us bongs to hit
And I survived.
I learned the chords to ?Woodenships? that night
I survived! Sailing into the light
Diving in before this life........... Passes me by.

Hey David, with all that you've been through
You still don't let the world get the best of you
When I need someone to look up to
Your words are the ones that still ring true
And I've survived since then
Looking back I'd probably do it all over again
I survived and "life IS fine" my friend
Well deja vu I'm listening to "Page 43" again.
Well deja vu I'm listening to "Page 43" again.
Deja vu I'm listening to "Page 43" again.
