Lyrics

The Cactus and the Dragon

World Spins Round

I'm going to write this song for you
because I know you liked the tune
I haven't seen you for a long time now
and I don't expect to soon
I'm sitting here with an ice cold beer
on a lazy afternoon
with the early summer sunshine spreading
slowly round the room

ain't it funny how the world spins round
and every now and then
it's all shaken up and settles down
then it all starts up again

I remember in a dream one time
you turned and waved goodbye
I still clearly see you standing there
with laughter in your eyes
now you live five hundred miles away
might as well be ten light years
because it seems a thousand lives ago
that you were living here

ain't it funny how the world spins round
and every now and then
it's all shaken up and settles down
then it all starts up again
