CIRCLE ROUND


 by Lane Gardner

Turn to return
That’s how it goes
Love gets lost, plans get tossed
New paths cross and fresh winds blow
Children grow then you let them go
Feelings change that once rang true
Dreams fall out of view
Making room for something new

It all makes for some fertile ground
All that goes up must come down
Flowers bloom and fade away
Dropping seeds for another day
Ashes to ashes, we all fall down
For every crushing loss and every hard-fought win
There’s a time to sink and a time to swim
Every ending ends to begin
And it brings the circle round

Mine is a lion’s share of broken hearts and broken dreams
Too many wake up calls to find that nothing was what it seemed
I’ve had to climb a lot of mountains and I’ve drowned in many seas
And as my tears fell down and hit the ground, they watered the soil of me

It all makes for some fertile ground
All that goes up must come down
Flowers bloom and fade away
Dropping seeds for another day
Ashes to ashes, we all fall down
For every crushing loss and every hard-fought win
There’s a time to sink and a time to swim
Every ending ends to begin
And it brings the circle round

Circle round now, you’ve got some fertile ground
And I know it’s hard to watch the days pass, whiteknuckling the hourglass
Grasping for a forecast of what comes next after what came last

It all makes for some fertile ground
All that goes up must come down
Flowers bloom and fade away
Dropping seeds for another day
Ashes to ashes, we all fall down
For every crushing loss and every hard-fought win
There’s a time to sink and a time to swim
Every ending ends to begin
And it brings the circle round
