Lyrics

I have gone to find myself
If I get back before I return
Keep me here on the roundabout
Round and round on the roundabout

Like a hoop, a circular ball
Life's a platform from which we fall
Keep me complete on the roundabout
Round and round on the roundabout

I don't quite recall the countdown for it all
I don't quite recall the madness of it all

From place to place a series of calls
The daily round are playing in the halls
A general cry, a round of applause
Round and round on the roundabout

A rotation, a revelation
In the round who can square the hole?
A peoples' ride, a circuit course
Division lap, a session force
Unanswered questions, a silent thought
The chilling truth, an internal court
Placing all their fears in me
Laughing at the very thought

See the circle, complete the line
Compare the shadow and watch the time
Remove the corners and smooth the ride
Rotate the wheel, nowhere to hide
Watch the dancers and see them laugh
Play the game and watch them laugh
A dance in which the dancers form
In the image that you were born

A carousel, a merry-go-round
A circle in which we revolve
Flying high, soaring high above
Round and round on the roundabout

I have just to ask myself
Why I chase the dream, the full circle
It comes around
It all comes around
Round and round on the roundabout

I don't quite recall the countdown for it all
I don't quite recall the madness of it all
Come join me on the roundabout
Like a mirror you can't live without
Out here on the roundabout
We're dancing for our lives
