What I’ll give you
Since you’ve asked
Is all my time together
Take the rugged sunny days
The warm and rocky weather
Take the roads that I have walked
Looking for tomorrow’s time
Peace of mind --

As your life spills into mine
Changing with the seasons
Filling up the world with time
Change time to reasons
I can show you all the songs
That I never sang to someone before.

We have seen a million stars
Lying by the water
You have climbed the hills with me
To the mountain shelter
Taking off the days
One by one
Setting them to breath
In the sun.

Take the lilies and the lace
From the days of childhood
All the willow winding paths
Leading up and outward
This is what I give
This is what I ask you for
Nothing more.

Since You’ve Asked Lyrics:
Dan Fogelberg

I don't think I've ever heard these lyrics. They are very romantic...
Hey stop by whenever it's right for you...

I have heard this sung by Judy Collins....I never really knew till now it was written by Fogelberg...both in my mind marvelous sad that Dan died from cancer. These are great lyrics.
