Dan Fogelberg – Phoenix lyrics

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.
