The lyrics on the liner notes show this as "her life so sweet", but it's wrong. I have a number of live bootlegs and Lowell clearly sings "lies". It makes more sense in context of the next line, and it's more poetic and poignant.


Definitely "lies". I have the great fortune to have seen this band a few dozen times before Lowell died (unfortunately, right near here in Arlington, VA.) I ushered all 3 dates at the Lisner in the summer of '77 that were used in part to put together "Waiting for Columbus." I didn't do too much ushing....... Banana

Glad to see another Feat aficionado here. One of, if not the best live bands I've ever seen. No need for pyrotechnics and laser beams. When they were grooving, if you weren't moving you didn't have a pulse.
