"Phoenix" as written by and Dan Fogelberg....
I have cried too
I have cried too long
I have cried too
I have cried too long
No more sorrow,
Got to carry on

Found deep water
Before I've even learned to swim
Found deep water
Before I've even learned to swim
Never thought I'd
See the sun again

Once I was a
Once I was a man alone
Once I was a
Once I was a man alone
Now I've found a
Heart to call my home

Like a Phoenix,
I have risen from the flames
Like a Phoenix,
I have risen from the flames
No more living
Someone else's dreams

I have cried too
I have cried too long
I have cried too
I have cried too long
No more sorrow
Got to carry on

You almost had me, old lady
You almost tied me down good
You played the lady in waiting
And I waited as long as I could

Too long the songs have been silent
Too long the strings have been still
I never knew what you wanted
An I guess that I Never Will

Like a phoenix,
I have risen from the flames
Like a phoenix,
I have risen from the flames
No more living
Someone else's dreams

I have cried too
I have cried too long
I have cried too
I have cried too long
No more sorrow
Got to carry on

    General CommentGreat song, as proved by the choice of the nick for the guy who submitted the lyrics. Love it. Gets stuck in my head often, but you still can't hear it w/o Tullamore Dew.
