Tullamore Dew
(Dan Fogelberg)
Phoenix ~ 1979
(Instrumental)

Phoenix
(Dan Fogelberg)
Phoenix ~ 1979

I have cried too...I have cried too long
I have cried too...I have cried too long
No more sorrow...got to carry on
Found deep water before I'd even learned to swim
Found deep water before I'd even learned to swim
Never thought I'd see the sun again
Once I was a...once I was a man alone
Once I was a...once I was a man alone
Now I've found a heart to call my home

Like a Phoenix I have risen from the flames
Like a Phoenix I have risen from the flames
No more living someone else's dreams
I have cried too...I have cried too long
I have cried too...I have cried too long
No more sorrow...got to carry on

You almost had me, old lady
You almost tied me down good
You played the lady in waiting
And I waited as long as I could

Too long the songs have been silent
Too long the strings have been still
I never knew what you wanted
And I guess that I never will

Like a Phoenix I have risen from the flames
Like a Phoenix I have risen from the flames
No more living someone else's dreams
I have cried too...I have cried too long
I have cried too...I have cried too long
No more sorrow...got to carry on

As The Raven Flies
(Dan Fogelberg)
Souvenirs ~ 1974

I see the raven's made her nest in your eyes
She's got you thinking that her love is a prize
And you'll go under from the weight of her lies
As the raven flies...as the raven flies

She'll bring you stories that just never sound true
She'll bring you secrets that were never meant for you
And just as you come round she'll send you back through
She's in love with you...she's in love with you

Darker, darker
Don't let her talk her way into you
Lonely, lonely
You know she's only no good for you
Darker, darker
Don't let her talk her way into you
Lonely, lonely
You know she's only no good for you

I see the raven's made her nest in your eyes
She's got you thinking that her love is a prize
And you'll go under from the weight of her lies
As the raven flies...as the raven flies
As the raven flies...as the raven flies

The River
(Dan Fogelberg)
Home Free ~ 1972

I was born by a river rolling past a town
Given no direction...just told to keep my head down
As I took my position,a man fired a gun
I was so steeped in tradition I could not run

I was raised by a river weaned upon the sky
And in the mirror of the waters I saw myself learn to cry
As the tears hit the surface I saw what had been done
I gave feet to my freedom and I did run

Someday later I saw the writing in the dust
It told me how I should travel
It told me who I was

I ran far from the river...far as I could see
And as the sun hit my shoulders, I felt it burning me
How I longed for the waters as the fire raged
How I longed for the river as I aged

I will die by a river as it rolls away
Bury me in the nighttime...do not waste the day
High above the waters that roll on to the sea
All the angels in heaven will laugh at me
They will laugh at me....they will laugh at me
They will laugh at me
My life was naught but a river rolling through my brain
Made of so many teardrops...made of so much pain

Once Upon A Time
(Dan Fogelberg)
Nether Lands ~ 1977

Every morning you wake up alone
And you shake up your soul but nothing stirs
So you take the love of whoever you please
But you can't find no reason for giving yours

(Chorus)
'Cause once upon a time
You held a love so strong and fine
That all the others simply don't compare
She's always on your mind
But once upon a time
You had her there

Drive into town 'most every night
On the chance that there might be someone waiting for you
You tell yourself you'll give it your best
Maybe settle for less but you never do

(Chorus)
(Repeat First Verse)
(Chorus)



Tell Me To My Face
(G. Nash, T. Hicks, A. Clarke)
Twin Sons Of Different Mothers ~ 1978

Is it just that you can't face the future with me
Can't you tell me to my face
You just took the coward's way to say goodbye
How would you feel here in my place

And now I know my love is lost on you
And nothing you can say or do
Will turn my head around the other way
I'd have thought you'd have the decency to come and tell the truth to me
Instead of telling lies your eyes betray

(Chorus)

Tell me to my face you're leaving now
Tell me to my face that you're leaving now

(Repeat First Verse and Chorus)

Tell me to my face you're leaving now
Tell me to my face that you're leaving now


Wishing On The Moon
(Dan Fogelberg)
Phoenix ~ 1979

How many eyes will you sack in sorrow
Seeking to borrow some sight of your own
How many lies will you have to suffer
Until you discover there's nobody home
How many roads will you have to wander
How many dead end streets
How many dreams will you finally squander
Dodging your own defeats
You're...

(Chorus)
...wishing on the moon tonight
There's not a lucky star in sight
Just wishing on the moon tonight

How many doors will you have to open
Desperately hoping each one's the last
How many more will you close behind you
Bitter and blind to the shadows you cast
How many fools will you have to follow
How many wayward winds
How many sins will you have to swallow
Until the truth sinks in
That you've been...

(Chorus)
Wishing on the moon

(Repeat First Verse once and Chorus twice)
Wishing on the moon
You're just, just, just wishing

Empty Cages
(Dan Fogelberg)
The Innocent Age ~ 1981

Every time we speak, our words betray intentions
Insincere inventions that never quite reach the heart
So we turn the other cheek and gather our defenses
Again rebuild the fences that just been keeping us apart

Waiting out the worst, we keep the best inside us
In hopes our hearts can hide us, in hopes our tears don't show
And you know we're not the first to try and breach the distance
And though we meet resistance the love between us grows

(Chorus)
And in the time it takes us to look beyond the lies
We could be sailing through each other's eyes
And in those stolen moments when love is caught off guard
We see it never had to be this hard

(Repeat First Verse And Chorus)


The Innocent Age
(Dan Fogelberg)
The Innocent Age ~ 1981

Capture the moment, carry the day
Stay with the chase as long as you may
Follow the dreamer, the fool and the sage
Back to the days of the innocent age
Storybook endings never appear
They're just someone's way of leading us here
Waiting for wisdom to open the cage
We forged in the fires of the innocent age

(Chorus)
Back at the start it was easy to see
No one to own to, nowhere to be
Deep in the heartlands a sad memory calls to me (calls to me)

Fretful horizons, worrisome skies
Tearful misgivings burning your eyes
Yearnings unanswered, reckon the wage you pay
To recapture the innocent age

(Chorus)

Fretful horizons, worrisome skies
Tearful misgivings burning your eyes
Yearnings unanswered, reckon the wage you
Pay to recapture the innocent age


What You're Doing
(Dan Fogelberg)
Exiles ~ 1987

(Chorus)
Look...what you're doing
Baby what in heaven are you thinking of
Look...what you're doing
Will you throw away such sweet sweet love
Will you throw away such sweet sweet love

You used to say that you would always stay
But now you say you want to find your freedom
But are the promises of being free
Worth the sacrifice of all you had with me
You know I've always tried the best I could
To prove my love to you and make you happy
And once upon a time it felt so good
Now what has happened now to make you want to fly
Do you want to see me cry

(Chorus)

I ain't the fool that you believe I am
You tell your lies but I can see right through them
'Cause in your eyes I see another man
But he will never love you like you know I can
Oh girl you know I can
You better open up your eyes...
Look...what you're doing
Baby what in heaven where you thinking of
Look...what you're doing
Will you throw away such sweet sweet love
Will you throw away such sweet sweet love
Will you throw away such sweet sweet love
Will you throw away such sweet sweet love


She Don't Look Back
(Dan Fogelberg)
Exiles ~ 1987

She's got a way of getting so inside you
That you think she's gonna steal your soul
She's got a way of making sure that you can't let go
She's got a trail of broken hearts behind her
Like a shadow where no shadow's cast
I ain't the first one and I doubt that I'll be the last
Too long--Too late
You're wrong to ever think she'd wait...

She don't look back
Oh-oh Oh-oh, she don't look back
Oh-oh Oh-oh, she don't look back
Oh-oh Oh-oh, the lady don't look back
And when she goes she's gone

You can never tell just what she's after
You can never read it in her eyes
And in her laughter there's no hint of compromise
And you can stare into the fire forever
You can squeeze a stone until it bleeds
But you will never find the kind of a love she needs
Too much--too late
You're such a fool to think she'd wait

She don't look back
Oh-oh Oh-oh, she don't look back
Oh-oh Oh-oh, she don't look back
Oh-oh Oh-oh, she don't look back
And when she goes she's gone
She don't look back
She don't look back
She don't look back
She don't look back
She don't look back
She don't look back

Aurora Nova
(Dan Fogelberg)
The Wild Places ~ 1990
(instrumental)

The Wild Places
(Dan Fogelberg)
The Wild Places ~ 1990

I was walking alone through the lofty San Juans
With a heart full of light and a head full of songs
I was thinking of time and how much it will cost
To recapture the souls that we surely have lost

In the cities and towns there are millions who dream
But the traffic's so loud that you can't hear them scream
There's a heaven on earth that so few ever find
Though the map's in your soul and the road's in your mind
So many mountains before us, so many rivers to cross
Where is the wisdom to bring back the vision we've lost

Can we gaze with the wonder of children
Into the deafening night
Has it gotten so dark that we cannot remember the light
When you sleep on the ground with the stars in your face
You can feel the full length of the beauty and grace
In the wild places man is an unwelcome guest
But it's here that I'm found and it's here I feel blessed


There's a rumor that the president's dead
He had a tumor growing deep in his head
But it hasn't had the slightest effect on how he doing his job
And there's these lessons that they teach you in school
That you'd better learn to play be the rules
Or at least make sure you never get caught
Now that's a dangerous thought

Democracy
(Dan Fogelberg)
Previously Unreleased

They've got McDonald's in the USSR
Fries and burgers in the Kremlin's backyard
Now they're learning what democracy means
Let's send them Calvin Klein jeans

(Chorus)
Is this what democracy means?
Is this what democracy means?
Is this what democracy means?
Is this what democracy means?

Now there's people living out in the street
Going hungry with no shoes on their feet
While the government just twiddles its thumbs
And spends more money on guns
And they keep on planning nuclear war
Tell me who is it they're planning it for
If not the men that make their profits from hate
I swear it seems they can't wait

(Chorus)

And the business boys they don't seem to care
About the blood that filled Tiananmen Square
They're so fearful that their checkbooks will bounce
If they should lose these accounts
And the wall that tore Berlin has come down
Can you hear it?
Such a beautiful sound
Like it was written up above in the stars
Now we can sell them more cars

(Chorus twice)


A Voice For Peace
(Dan Fogelberg)
River Of Souls ~ 1993

You know that everybody has a voice
And how they use it is their own free choice
In your glory I will not rejoice
If you choose the ways of war
If you choose the ways of war

Ashes to ashes and dust to dust
My country 'tis of thee; in God we trust
But how much longer will He shelter us
While we choose the ways of war
While the winds of war rage on

(Chorus)
Let mine (oh let my small voice) be a voice for peace
Oh let mine (oh let my small voice) be a voice for peace
Oh let mine (oh let my small voice) be a voice for peace
Let it start here with me--oh let mine be a voice for peace

The good book tells us thou shalt not kill
The truth came shining and it's shining still
But how much blood upon this earth must spill
Before we lay our weapons down
Let us lay our weapons down

(Chorus)

Let mine (oh let my small voice) be a voice for peace
Oh let mine (oh let my small voice) be a voice for peace
Oh let mine (oh let my small voice) be a voice for peace
Let it start here with me, oh let mine be a voice
And in the face of the beast, oh let mine be a voice
Until the breaths in me cease, oh let mine be a voice for peace
Let mine (oh let my small voice) be a voice for peace
Oh let mine (oh let my small voice) be a voice for peace
Oh let mine (oh let my small voice) be a voice for peace
Oh let mine (oh let my small voice) be a voice for peace
Raise your voice up, raise your voice up
Raise your voice up and sing for the promise

(Sing as a round with the last chorus)
