I was listening to a song sang by Emi Fujita in and I find the lyrics of this song really interesting.

It was written by Dan Fogelberg and its titled as Longer. He sang it in the album Phoenix at 1979. The version that I heard was re-sang by Emi Fujita.

I did a big of a back ground to see how he got the inspiration for the lyrics, apparently the song  writer was in a holiday at Maui and one night as he was lounging in the hammock and looking up at the skies, he pen down the lyrics.

Hmm well.. i guess this song should be dedicated to all the loving couples around me.

Title: Longer
Lyrics : Dan Fogelberg
Artist : Dan Fogelberg, Emi Fujita  (and I guess many others)

Longer than there’ve been fishes in the ocean
Higher than any bird ever flew

Longer than there’ve been stars up in the heavens
I’ve been in love with you.

Stronger than any mountain cathedral
Truer than any tree ever grew
Deeper than any forest primeval
I am in love with you.

I’ll bring fires in the winters
You’ll send showers in the springs
We’ll fly through the falls and summers
With love on our wings.

Through the years as the fire starts to mellow
Burning lines in the book of our lives
Though the binding cracks and the pages start to yellow
I’ll be in love with you.
I’ll be in love with you.

Longer than there’ve been fishes In the ocean
Higher than any bird ever flew
Longer than there’ve been stars Up in the heavens
I’ve been in love with you
I am in love with you…
