Dan Fogelberg - "Part Of The Plan"
September 23, 2020
For some reason I always associate Dan Fogelberg with Colorado. This song is one of his best. Great lyrics. Fun factoid - the record was produced by Joe "Rocky Mountain Way" Walsh.
I have these moments All steady and strong I'm feeling so holy and humble The next thing I know I'm all worried and weak And I feel myself starting to crumble
The meanings get lost And the teachings get tossed And you don't know what You're going to do next You wait for the sun But it never quite comes
Some kind of message Comes through to you Some kind of message comes through
And it says to you. . . 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
I had a woman Who gave me her soul But I wasn't ready to take it Her heart was so fragile And heavy to hold And I was afraid I might break it
Your conscience awakes And you see your mistakes And you wish someone Would buy your confessions The days miss their mark And the night gets so dark And some kind of message Comes through to you Some kind of message shoots through --
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
There is no Eden or Heavenly gates That you're gonna make it to one day But all of the answers you seek Can be found In the dreams that you dream on the way
