When You're Not Near Me

This song is on Dan Fogelberg's 2003 album "Full Circle" - I have this CD
Dan Fogelberg was married to his wife Jean Fogelberg from 2002 until his death in 2007 and he wrote this song about her
This is a picture of Dan and Jean

When youíre not near me
The time donít seem to move as easy
When youíre not near me
The sun donít seem to feel the same
The days donít shine as brightly
And the nights donít taste as sweet
And this soul of mine feels
Lost and incomplete
When youíre not near me

When youíre not near me
I make the sound of one hand clapping
When youíre not near me
I leave no footprints in the sand
And I can find no solace
In the lonely silver sea
Iím only half as strong and half as free
When youíre not near me
When youíre not near me

Donít be long my love
Oh, donít be long my love
It wonít be long until
I hold you in my arms again

When youíre not near me
There is no laughter in my spirit
When youíre not near me
There is no spirit in my laugh
You are like a magnet to that iron part in me
And this longing never seems to let me be
When youíre not near me
When youíre not near me

Dan Fogelberg
