Jayhawks, The - Crowded In The Wings Lyrics




It's taken you so long
Where can you be?
I woulda laid my life down for you
Nothing seems real, nothing seems real
Now that you're gone

Have you seen the sister's blue-eyed curls of gold
Hell and no one there to be seen
The sunlight looks down
Stripped bare to the ground
Held by the leaves

Been crowded in the wings
Mostly I don't mind
Been crowded in the wings
Then it's you I find
Then it's you I find
Then it's you I find

Two hundred yards in front of the man
He could never see his way to another day
This time meant the same, cold, cold, cold
Cold once again

Been crowded in the wings
Mostly I don't mind
Been crowded in the wings
Then it's you I find
Then it's you I find
Then it's you I find

You brought me to the mother of mountains
You brought me to
And no one reads to you at night
And all your lies came to pass
Just something I said
Made you turn your life in

Been crowded in the wings
Mostly I don't mind
Been crowded in the wings
Then it's you I find
Then it's you I find
Then it's you I find

Been crowded in the wings
Mostly I don't mind
Been crowded in the wings
Then it's you I find
Then it's you I find
Then it's you I find
Been crowded in the wings
Been crowded in the wings
Been crowded in the wings
Been crowded in the wings

Jayhawks, The Crowded In The Wings Comments
  1. monkey tran

    Wish people would discover this band, put it in a soundtrack or something to make them get some recognition. It's a shame not more people are expose and enjoy this song, band.

  5. javi fernandez

    IMPRESIONANTES SIEMPRE!!!

  6. Rav66 C

    I've always loved the Jayhawks. They carry on the great country, folk rock tradition. If you like the Jayhawks, I think you would like Jars of Clay "Who we are Instead". The album is in the Jayhawks vein. I think you will love it. I still think the Jayhawks are better..but not much better.

  16. Herman Smit

    Recently discovered the jayhawks, and last Monday I bought Hollywood Town Hall on cd ....Mij favourite song is Crowded in Wings

    Robin Wilson

    My favourite CD is "Smile"

  17. Angelo Troiano

    this songs always sets me free, it reminds me of my village mountains. Everytime I listen to it I imagine to go for walk there, for taking a long breath after a broke up.

  18. Patrick Maguire

    timeless....

  19. Cap'n Carny

    damn, it has been a long time.

    "Sunlight looks down, stripped bare to the ground held by the leaves..."
    I can never decide what is the best song off this album: Clouds, Take Me With You, Sister Cry, Nevada California, Wichita, Two Angels, Martin's Song, Crowded in the Wings....
    I grew up in a small town with a population of 567, but some how Olson captures all the of feeling. And there is that Neil Young/Everly brothers thing...
    Effing poetry.

  20. Chocobopsu

    love the album art so much!

  21. brokertothestars

    20 years on, still sounding as fresh and relevant as when it came out....

  22. Mikael Rehbinder

    A great album alltogether. Think I should buy this (again).

  23. skydog7779

    This is one of the great songs by this absolutely outstanding band. This song is flawless!
