Round like a circle in a spiral, like a wheel within a wheel
Like a snowball down a mountain, or a carnival balloon
Like a clock whose hands are sweeping past the minutes of its face
Like the circles that you find in the windmills of your mind!
Like a tunnel that you follow to a tunnel of its own
Like a door that keeps revolving in a half forgotten dream
Like a clock whose hands are sweeping past the minutes of its face
Like the circles that you find in the windmills of your mind!
Keys that jingle in your pocket, words that jangle in your head
Lovers walking along a shore and leave their footprints in the sand
Pictures hanging in a hallway and the fragment of a song
When you knew that it was over you were suddenly aware
Like a circle in a spiral, like a wheel within a wheel
As the images unwind, like the circles that you find in

When did summer go so quickly? Was it something that you said?
Is the sound of distant drumming just the fingers of your hand?
Half remembered names and faces, but to whom do they belong?
For a moment you could not recall the color of his eyes!
Never ending or beginning on an ever spinning reel
The windmills of your mind!
