The Innocent Age

disney-scarecrow-3

Capture the moment
Carry the day
Stay with the chase
As long as you may
Follow the dreamer,
The fool, and the sage
Back to the days of
The innocent age.

disney-scarecrow-1

Storybook endings
Never appear
They're just someone's way of
Leading us here
Waiting for wisdom
To open the cage
We forged in the fires of
The innocent age.


disney-scarecrow-2

Back at the start
It was easy to see
No one to own to
Nowhere to be
Deep in the heartlands
A sad memory
Calls to me.

disney-scarecrow-4

Fretful horizons
Worrisome skies
Tearful misgivings
Burning your eyes
Yearnings unanswered
Reckon the wage you
Pay to recapture the innocent age.


surrey

Back at the start
It was easy to see
No one to own to
Nowhere to be
Deep in the heartlands
A sad memory
Calls to me.

Lyrics: Dan Fogelberg

Hi Cori
I've always thought this song was sad. The pumpkin men made me smile, however. Are they in Disnyland? I hope you had a day full of treats!
Hugs, Pat
