Dan Fogelberg - Empty Cages

Waiting in the wings

Your courage sings before you falter . . .

It's just another way to say

What's there but never shows

It's just another day to lay

Your sins before the altar

And where it's going to end

This time around nobody knows.

Every time it seems that you

Have gained an understanding

Those devils at your heels

Reach up and try to tip the scales

Waking from a dream

You see it's all been done without you

And every vain attempt to make it stay

Is destined to fail.

Chorus

Fury rages through your restless days

Shades of time that's gone before

Empty cages where the prisoner plays

'til the door swings closed behind for evermore . . .

Evermore...

Evermore...

Long before we come of

Age we yearn to leave the garden

And wrestle with a myth

The hand of fate

Has faintly drawn

But somewhere on the way

We feel our hearts begin to harden

And see just as we learn

To turn around

The garden is gone.

Fury rages through your restless days

Shades of time that's gone before

Empty cages where the prisoner plays

'til the door swings closed

Behind for evermore . . .

Evermore...

Evermore...
