  • You make me smile
    And all the while
    You're so cool I can feel
    You care if it's real

    Our love

    I found you here
    The sun in your hair
    Caught my eye passing by
    I knew I should try

    Our love

    I watched the planes coming in
    Felt my heartbeat begin
    And I knew that I would stay

    A cab for two
    A whole city new
    But this time we'll share
    The love we'll find there

  • Roman from Barrie, Onif you want some classic David Crosby, latch onto his album titled "Oh yes I can" where he does solo work, often backed by members of CSN&Y as well as other artists.
  • Kevin from Reading , PaThis is really a pretty remarkable song, especially when you consider how early on it was recorded. Crosby does a great lead vocal and the singing is very moody, almost jazz. Interestingly, this was recorded during the "Prefylye" sessions in '64 that precluded the Byrds' first album release, Mr. Tambourine Man. Despite a great lead vocal on this, Crosby was not afforded a lead vocal on either of the group's first two albums, though is omnipresent through his harmony singing. Jim (later Roger) Mcguinn and Gene Clark took all the lead vocals on the first two albums. With Clark's departure during the "Fifth Dimension" sessions in '66, room opened up for Crosby to sing "Hey Joe" and "What's Happening." By the fourth album Crosby had four or five lead vocals, and was on the verge of taking over the group from McGuinn during the "Notorious Byrd Brothers" sessions when he was fired by McGuinn and Chris Hillman. Crosby, of course, had the last laugh, going on to bigger fame and fortune with Nash, Stills and occasionally, Young.
