    This was written and recorded during the Reagan era, but it still seems apt for the time.

    A cookie for who can guess who plays the piano on this song — hint: his style is very recognizable.

    Remember when the days were long
    And rolled beneath a deep blue sky
    Didn't have a care in the world
    With mommy and daddy standin' by
    But "happily ever after" fails
    And we've been poisoned by these fairy tales
    The lawyers dwell on small details
    Since daddy had to fly

    But I know a place where we can go
    That's still untouched by men
    We'll sit and watch the clouds roll by
    And the tall grass waves in the wind
    You can lay your head back on the ground
    And let your hair fall all around me
    Offer up your best defense
    But this is the end
    This is the end of the innocence

    O' beautiful, for spacious skies
    But now those skies are threatening
    They're beating plowshares into swords
    For this tired old man that we elected king
    Armchair warriors often fail
    And we've been poisoned by these fairy tales
    The lawyers clean up all details
    Since daddy had to lie

    But I know a place where we can go
    And wash away this sin
    We'll sit and watch the clouds roll by
    And the tall grass waves in the wind
    Just lay your head back on the ground
    And let your hair spill all around me
    Offer up your best defense
    But this is the end
    This is the end of the innocence

    Who knows how long this will last
    Now we've come so far, so fast
    But, somewhere back there in the dust
    That same small town in each of us
    I need to remember this
    So baby give me just one kiss
    And let me take a long last look
    Before we say goodbye

    Just lay your head back on the ground
    And let your hair fall all around me
    Offer up your best defense
    But this is the end
    This is the end of the innocence

    Bruce Hornsby?

    And we have a winner!




    Indeed, Bruce Hornsby wrote this song for Don Henley, and he even recorded his own version of it.

    I only really know one song from him, but recognized the sound.

    I can't see that either, but it was this one.

    This was another one that he scored well with.
