2007-06-11 - THE LIGHTHOUSE, CHELSEA PIERS, NEW YORK CITY

Jon Landau Management and Jackson Browne are honored by World Hunger Year (Harry Chapin's charity). "Bruce arrived late, ate dinner, was made to sound like he was the honoree as everyone praised him for leading the way etc. Jackson played one song and then Tom Chapin led everyone, including Bruce strumming someone's guitar in a Harry Chapin song. One of the other musicians sang a verse and changed the lyrics with a "Born In The U.S.A." reference. Bruce chuckled."

Lyrics

All my life's a circle;
Sunrise and sundown;
Moon rolls through the nighttime;
'Til the daybreak comes around.
All my life's a circle;
But I can't tell you why;
Season's spinning round again;
The years keep rollin' by.
It seems like I've been here before;
I can't remember when;
But I have this funny feeling;
That we'll all be together again.
No straight lines make up my life;
And all my roads have bends;
There's no clear-cut beginnings;
And so far no dead-ends.
I found you a thousand times;
I guess you done the same;
But then we lose each other;
It's like a children's game;
As I find you here again;
A thought runs through my mind;
Our love is like a circle;
Let's go 'round one more time.
I found you a thousand times;
I guess you done the same;
But then we lose each other;
It's like a children's game;
