Everybody has been burned before Everybody knows the pain Anyone in this place Can tell you to your face Why you shouldn't try to love someone Everybody know it never works Everybody knows, and me I know that door That shuts just before You get to the dream you see
I know all too well How to turn, how to run How to hide behind a bitter wall of blue But you die inside if you choose to hide So I guess instead I'll love you

Nikkoarty from U.k. For me this is Crosby at his best crafting a song which succinctly explores the fears and hopes of love. As a 15 year old I was completely hooked. I still am. This song also enables Roger McGuinn to contribute one of the most emotionally charged guitar solos ever. If you want to tune in to some quality 60’s vibes I would always recommend listening to the Byrds. All Good Things.
Maryann from GeorgiaSO many years later (and I even saw the Byrds in concert back in the day) I just discovered this song and have been playing it over and over like a teenager. So haunting and beautiful.
