Longer

This song is on 9 Dan Fogelberg albums/CD's - It was on his album "Phoenix" released November 1979-I have this CD
Dan said this about this song - The song I jokingly refer to as, the song that put me on the elevators. 
I wrote it on vacation in Maui in 1979 while lounging in a hammock
one night and looking up at the stars.  It just seems this song was drifting
around the universe, saw me, and decided I'd give it a good home"DF 
I think this is a beautiful song

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 fire 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 
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
