Turning ever turning
The never ending cycle goes
Throughout our lives,
The heartbreak and the yearning,
We live and learn to love
And as we grow the days go faster
So little have we learned
In our hearts we hold a purpose
Lead our lives out like a circus
You're a clown, that painted smile
Is not your own.
And as the years are turning
I feel a never ending burning
Within my heart, away from you,
So many miles from home.
