DAN FOGELBERG lyrics - River Of Souls

Magic Every Moment

Original and similar lyrics
I awoke this morning to a shattering sound And I went downstairs and found these shards of glass strewn all around And there upon the floor I found this poor broken dove And it made me realize how very fragile is this life that we so love I came back up to bed and I held you so tight And I prayed up to the Father, oh I prayed with all my might That He'd always keep you with me, that He'd always keep you safe And when I went downstairs I found that dove had somehow up and flown away There's a magic every moment There's a miracles each day There's a magic every moment Oh won't you let the music play Oh won't you let the music play On a high and windy island I was gazing out to sea When a long forgotten feeling came and took control of me It was then the clouds burst open and the sun came pouring through When it hit those dancing waters in an instant all eternity I knew There's so much we take for granted, there's so much we never say We get caught up in the motion of just a living day to day We are fettered to the future, we are prisoners of the past And we never seem to notice 'til our lives have finally slipped right through our grasp There's a magic every moment There's a miracles each day There's a magic every moment Oh won't you let the music play Oh won't you let the music play You can see forever in a single drop of dew You can see that same forever if you look down deep inside of you There's a spark of the creator in every living thing He respects me when I work but He so loves me when I sing There's a magic every moment There's a miracles each day There's a magic every moment Oh won't you let the music play Oh won't you let the music play There's a magic every moment There's a miracles each day There's a magic every moment Oh won't you let the music play Oh won't you let the music play

The Spirit Of Radio

RUSH "Signals"
Begin the day with a friendly voice, A companion unobtrusive Plays the song that's so elusive And the magic music makes your morning mood. Off on your way, hit the open road, There is magic at your fingers For the Spirit ever lingers, Undemanding contact in your happy solitude. Chorus Invisible airwaves crackle with life Bright antennae bristle with the energy Emotional feedback on timeless wavelength Bearing a gift beyond price, almost free All this machinery making modern music Can still be open-hearted. Not so coldly charted It's really just a question of your honesty, yeah, Your honesty. One likes to believe in the freedom of music, But glittering prizes and endless compromises Shatter the illusion of integrity. Chorus For the words of the profits were written on the studio wall, Concert hall And echoes with the sounds of salesmen.

Got To Rock On

KANSAS "Audio-Visions"
(Steve Walsh) It's no funny hanging around winter seems so numbing Getting fat where I sit down do you suppose it's old age coming I get this feeling I'm no good for nothing life has led me wrong Once in a while it makes it all worthwhile if I can sing this song Got to rock on I can't be this way I'm hanging around but wait till music's in season That's when I'm high that is how I play and I do it the best that's all I need for a reason Can't think straight can't think at all staring out the window Hear the band I hear them call everything will disappear and I get the feeling I can conquer anything gets in my way Don't need no doctor 'caus I know exactly what I need today I Got to rock on I can't be this way I'm hanging around but wait till music's in season That's when I'm high that is how I play and I do it the best that's all I need for a reason The sun beats down upon me and it looks as tough that spring Has waited long enough to get here she knows that I must Sing about her future oh sing about her past I love to play my music And I try to make it last but sometimes summer comes too fast I got to rock on I can't be this way (cont.)

Bob Robert's Society Band

JIMMY BUFFETT "Banana Wind"
Well, You've heard about the alligators sleepin' in the shade You've heard heard about the sugar barons screwin' up the 'glades, It's a melting pot existence That is hard to contemplate And a never ending battle in the Sunshine State. But far, far away from the front page news, Far, far away from the headline blues, Down a secondary road that severely shows its age The forties comes to life on a make-shift stage. It's the Bob Robert's Society Band. Playing every Sunday at the Orange Grove Stand. They don't play grunge and they don't play loud. It's the magic of the music that still draws a crowd. Well, the word goes out From Melbourne to the Keys. The faithful get the message Like it's written on the breeze. Young folks, old folks, 'Bout to cut a rug Fox Trot, Bunny Hop, Do the Jitterbug, To the Bob Robert's Society Band. Playing every Sunday at the Orange Grove Stand. They don't play grunge and they don't play loud. It's the magic of the music that still draws a crowd. I saw mini vans from Boca, Buses from Perrine. There were people speaking Hindu In the Bar-B-Que line. A couple on their honeymoon Looked a bit confused. But the boys in the band put 'em right in the mood. They played..... A lady dressed in purple started dancing all alone Then she sauntered oh so gently to the vacant microphone. She sounded like she's someone and never missed a beat. By the time the number ended they were dancin' in the street. They'd died and gone to heaven, That lively little crowd, Trombones and saxophones Sent 'em through the clouds. It could have gone all night But the party had to stop. When they blew the circuit breaker In the souvenir shop. It's the Bob Robert's Society Band Playing every Sunday at the Orange Grove Stand They don't play grunge and they don't play loud It's the magic of the music that still draws a crowd. It's the Bob Robert's Society Band Playing every Sunday down at the Orange Grove Stand They don't play grunge and they don't play loud It's the magic of the music that still draws a crowd.

What Am I Gonna Do With You

BARRY WHITE "All Time Greatest Hits"
One ticket please Lord have mercy Everybody's here hey what's goin' on man? She's at home yeah she's at home yeah she's at home! Let the music play I just want to dance the night away Here right here right here where I'm gonna stay all night long. Let the music play just I feel I feel this misery is gone Movin' kickin' groovin' keep the music strong On and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on. I'm out here dancin' and still I can't erase the things I feel The tender love we used to share seems like it's no longer there. I've got to hide what's killin' me inside. Let the music play I just.want to dance the night away . . . I think I'm gonna be alright (Ha ha ha) If I can make it through the night oh lord I'll just pretend she's here with me I'll close my eyes her face I'll see I know it's make believe but it's the only hope for me. Let the music play I just want to dance the night away . . .
