Comes And Goes

This song is on Dan Fogelberg's 1975 album "Captured Angel" - That was the first album of his that I bought - I now have the CD
Dan promoted the album with a tour in support of the Eagles
The album was produced by Fogelberg. He alone recorded all of the instrumental parts before being convinced by his label to allow for a few re-recordings and contributions by other musicians
The majority of the album was recorded at a studio in South Pekin, Illinois, Fogelberg had returned home to care for his ill father.

The woman's like the night she comes and goes
She breaks my heart each day and never knows
And the time I spend in sorrow will match the time I live
And the time that's left is all I have to give

The woman's like an ivy on a pole
She wraps her twisted love around my soul
There will come a sudden winter when she'll seek the warmth of day
And there'll come a time when she will come to stay

The woman's like the tide she comes and goes
She knows the things that I can just suppose
And the time I spend in sorrow will match the time that she laughs
And the songs I sing cannot explain the half
