Dan Fogelberg - Nether lands
Tekst en muziek: Dan Fogelberg
(1977)






High on this mountain, the clouds down below
I’m feeling so strong and alive
From this rocky perch
I’ll continue to search
For the wind and the snow and the sky
Oh, I want a lover and I want some friends
And I want to live in the sun
And I want to do all the things that I never have done



Sunny bright mornings and pale moonlit nights
Keep me from feeling alone
Now I’m learning to fly
And this freedom is like
Nothing that I’ve ever known
Oh, I’ve seen the bottom and I’ve been on the top
But mostly I’ve lived in between
And where do you go when you get to the end of your dream



Oft in the nether lands I heard a sound
Like the beating of heavenly wings
And deep in my brain
I can hear a refrain
Of my soul as she rises and sings
Anthems to glory and anthems to love
And hymns filled with earthly delight
Like the songs that the darkness composes to worship the light



Once in a vision I came on some woods
And stood at a fork in the road
My choices were clear
Yet, I froze with the fear
Of not knowing which way to go
One road was simple acceptance of life
The other road offered sweetly peace
When I made my decision, my vision became my release
