Below The Surface

This song is on Dan Fogelberg's 1975 album "Captured Angel", and it was the first album of his that I bought-I now have the CD

In 1993 I was excommunicated from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints
On March 2,1997 I was baptized again and in my baptism program were these words from this song
I felt that they fit where I had come from and where I was going

"Some people tell you they're in trapped by the distance
And can't get what they want most
They throw up a wall and then call for assistance
And make no attempt to get close
Oh, I think you should know
You've gotta go slow below the surface
And easy through the waves
You know that your life must have a purpose
You better make a stand while you still can"


Some people tell you they're trapped by the distance
And can't get what they want most
They throw a wall and then call for assistance 
And make no attempt to get close

Oh, I think you should know
You've gotta go slow below the surface
And easy through the waves
You better go slow below the surface
And easy through the waves

You're running so fast that you can't find the past
And your future is wearing thin
Come from behind it's a matter of time 
'Til you see who you've always been

Oh, I think you should know
You've got to go slow below the surface
And easy through the waves
You better go slow below the surface
And easy through the waves

Some people tell you they're in trapped by the distance
And can't get what they want most
They throw up a wall and then call for assistance
And make no attempt to get close

Oh, I think you should know
You've gotta go slow below the surface
And easy through the waves
You better go slow below the surface
And easy through the waves

You know that your life must have a purpose
You better make a stand while you still can
