A Tribute to Dan Fogelberg

19 12 月 , 2007  

When I was succumbing to the Abnormal Psychology notes,
I heard the egregious news from Cheung Wai Kei,
(the DJ of RTHK’s programme 輕談淺唱不夜天)…
Dan Fogelberg left us on 16th December, 2007.

1951-2007

I was so overwhelmed……
This just makes my pressure exponentially more gruelling.
My mum told me that I loved Dan’s 《Longer》so much when I just was a toddler.
Hard to Say, Same Old Lang Syne, Rhythm of the Rain, Missing You…
all are classic and my precious.

Dan was diagnosed advanced prostate cancer in 2004,
and he fought so bravely with the tumour…
Now he is no longer with us anymore…
But his 《Longer》 will be perpetuated in our heart forever.

Longer than there’ve been fishes
in the ocean
Higher than any bird ever flew
Longer than there’ve been stars
up in the heavens
I’ve been in love with you.

Stronger than any mountain cathedral
Truer than any tree ever grew
Deeper than any forest primeval
I am in love with you.

I’ll bring fires in the winters
You’ll send showers in the springs
We’ll fly through the falls and summers
With love on our wings.

Through the years as the fire
starts to mellow
Burning lines in the book of our lives
Though the binding cracks and the
pages start to yellow
I’ll be in love with you.

Longer than there’ve been fishes
in the ocean
Higher than any bird ever flew
Longer than there’ve been stars
up in the heavens
I’ve been in love with you
I am in love with you..
