Lonely In Love

This song is on Dan Fogelberg's Exiles album released in 1987-I bought the album when it was released and now I have the CD
Dan Fogelberg lead vocals, backing vocals, electric guitar, acoustic guitar, synth guitar
Bob Glaub bass
Russ Kunkel - percussion
Michael Brecker tenor saxophone
Cover Art Concept Dan Fogelberg
Photography Wayne Maser and Levon Parian
Fogelberg supported the album by touring with Wendy Waldman
Fogelberg spent two years writing the songs, which were inspired by his divorce
That album has always been known as his divorce album
The Indianapolis News wrote that "Dan Fogelberg's "Exiles" (Full Moon-Epic) is an album-long look at the downside of love, and it's a strong record."
Dan was married to his 1st wife Maggie from 1982-1985 so this song is about her
This is a picture of Dan and Maggie

Some say that love is its own, love is its own reward
But I can't help but believe there's got to be more
A man needs a woman to have and to hold
To love him in body as well as in soul
I need your desire, where did the fire go

I keep trying to sleep but sleep won't be mine tonight
There's so much sorrow inside and baby I don't know why
I give you your freedom, I give you my love
I give all I have every time that we touch 
I don't know baby, maybe I give too much

Now I'm lonely in love 
Why must I be lonely in love
I'm so lonely in love 
Baby why must I be lonely 
Why must I be lonely in love

I know that love carries no, she carries no guarantees
But still I can't seem to find a reason that I can believe in
You said to be patient and give you some room
You said you had changes you need to work through
But the longer I wait the farther I feel from you

Now I'm lonely in love 
Why must I be lonely in love
I'm so lonely in love 
Baby why must I be lonely 
Why must I be lonely in love

I'm so lonely in love 
Why must I be lonely in love
I'm so lonely in love 
Baby you're my one and only 
Why do you keep me lonely in love

~~~ Dan Fogelberg ~~~
