Goodbye, Dan

Goodbye, Dan.

The leader of the band is tired and his eyes are growing old
His blood runs through my instrument, and his song is in my soul
My life has been a poor attempt to imitate the man
I’m just a living legacy to the leader of the band
Dan Fogelberg wrote that in memory of his father, the figurative leader of the band in the song. I give it back to Dan here, to honour him as the new, now passed, leader of the band.
Love when you can
Cry when you have to
Be who you must, that’s a part of the plan
Await your arrival with simple survival
And one day, we’ll all understand
One day, we’ll all understand
