A little gem

The following cover of Neil Young’s Expecting To Fly by Metric‘s Emily Haines is a little gem.

I came across this video in 2007, they year Knives Don’t Have Your Back came out. But is disappeared after a year or two. So I was very please to see that someone reposted it on YouTube last year.

Emily’s voice is one of my favorite. And Knives Don’t Have Your Back would be on my extremely short list if I was told I could keep only one album of my collection. Oh, and I would kill (don’t worry it’s just an expression) for a vinyl version of it.

There you stood on the edge of your feather
Expecting to fly
While I laughed I wondered whether
I should wave goodbye
Knowing that you’d gone

By the summer it was healing
We had said goodbye
All the years we’d spent with feeling
Ended with a cry
They ended with a cry
They ended with a cry

I tried so hard to stand
As I stumbled and fell to the ground
So hard to laugh as I stumble
And reached for the love I found
Knowing it was gone

If I never lived without you
Now you know I’d die
If I never said I loved you
Now you know I’d try
Babe, now you know I’d try
Babe, now you know I’d try
Babe
