The Leader of the Band



Believe In Me

If I could ever say it right
And reach your hostage heart
Despite the doubts you harbor
Then you might
Come to believe in me.

The life I lead is not the kind
That gives a woman peace of mind
I only hope someday you'll find
That you can believe in me.

Those other loves that
Came before
Mean nothing to me anymore
But you can never be quite sure
And will not believe in me.

Too many hearts have been broken
Failing to trust what they feel
But trust isn't something
That's spoken
And love's never wrong
When it's real.

If I could only do one thing
Then I would try to write and sing
A song that ends your questioning
And makes you believe in me.

Too many hearts have been broken
Failing to trust what they feel
But trust isn't something
That's spoken
And love's never wrong
When it's real.

If I could only do one thing
Then I would try to write and sing
A song that ends your questioning
And makes you believe in me
Oh, you can believe in me.



Dan Fogelberg

(1951- 2007)




Note: He was one of my favorite singers/ songwriters way, way back in time; when the acoustic guitar was my best friend; his songs were the staple in those endless drinking sessions with old friends outside our boarding house in Rawis, Legaspi City as well as while serenading some really lovely girls under the moonlight along the shores of Albay Gulf in the Philippines.

Hmm, but nice lyrics.

hola, serenading, eh? it's a beautiful tradition but it's almost forgotten now. the last time i've seen one was in the philippines a long time ago.

Fogelberg's songs was one of the staples as well among my guitar-playing classmates in school.

Sayang, at 56 he's far too young to be leaving us. Prostate cancer really sucks, doesn't it?
