David Crosby - Your Own Ride Lyrics




Love is wings
Keeps us in the air
Truth can be hard
But at least it's really there
Not just an image
But the substance deep inside

Truth, I give you, my child
To take with you on

Your own ride
You will ride with the owls at night
Your own ride
Sometimes you'll flee
Sometimes you'll fight

Fear is the mind killer
The creator of rage
A consul is wisdom
When it comes with age

They watch it step the passage
Each path that you take
Each thing you do
And all the choices you make
To face up to evil
And to see it through

Truth, I give you, my child
To take with you on

Your own ride
You will ride with the owls at night
Your own ride
Let your good heart guide you
Your own ride
Sometimes you'll flee
Sometimes you'll fight

'Cause I been thinking about dying
And how to do it well
How to stand up and face it
Or just lie where I fell
It's a matter of honor
Having stood up to might
To spend my last hour
Clearing a path

For your own ride
You will ride with the owls at night
Your own ride
I will be there beside you, child

Your own ride
You will ride with the owls at night
Your own ride
Sometimes you'll flee
Sometimes you'll fight

  2. John Hampton

    My life wouldn't be the same if I never heard David sing. Beautiful voices and lyrics and harmonies. It doesn't get better! Thank you David - we are so fortunate to have you! Peace!

  3. Shiryl Kaplan

    Thank you for your gift of beautiful music David. What a beautiful surprise discovering this today! Looking forward to seeing you in concert in Southern CO someday soon perhaps? Keep up the beautiful lyrics.

  4. Roy Posner

    4 albums in 5 years! Incredible, David! 'Croz' album knocked me out; perhaps best since 'If I Only Remember My Name'. Now enjoying the three successor albums. Why not keep putting them out? He has no real big record company bankrolling him. It's all about the music. Getting it our there. 78 year old man, sounds like 40 year old. Energy of same. What an unexpected and inspiring development!

  5. Robert Holt

    What a fantastic collaboration! This may be my favorite Croz song of all time. Love the Bill Laurence writing/playing. The lyrics hit home...this band (sometimes called The Lighthouse Band) is amazing. This coincides with my recent Snarky Puppy obsession -- Michael League is a wonder.

  6. Stuart Walker

    How can you make so much music that moves me like they do? my hat is off to You Beautiful and i thank you for being here in my life. LOVE
    Since 1968 i love You
