When you see the Southern Cross for the first time / You understand now why you came this way

2012.06.14-IMG_3847A little hard to see in this picture, but here indeed is the Southern Cross. When I was in Australia, I didn't get a chance to look up on a clear night, so I'll consider this my first viewing of the constellation.









When you see the Southern Cross for the first time
You understand now why you came this way
'Cause the truth you might be runnin' from is so small
But it's as big as the promise, the promise of a comin' day
So I'm sailing for tomorrow, my dreams are a dyin'
And my love is an anchor tied to you, tied with a silver chain
I have my ship, and all her flags are a flyin'
She is all that I have left, and music is her name
And you know it will
So we cheated and we lied and we tested
And we never failed to fail, it was the easiest thing to do
You will survive being bested
Somebody fine will come along
Make me forget about loving you
And the Southern Cross

- Steven Stills
