Round and Round

Round and Round

Liner Notes: 

First song of 5090 2021 - Rough Draft that I honestly should have spent more time on - especially the vocals. Enjoy.


Sittin in the circle
Watching the world go round
Watching the sun go down
Not knowing where I’m bound

Spinnin in in the circle
My thoughts become a sphere
Future to past to here
And all that I hold dear

And I go round and round and round and round and round and round

Standing on the circle
It’s the way I fly
Born then we live and die
Can’t win if you don’t try

Falling down the circle
Watching the walls spin past
Nothing was made to last
Falling slow, falling fast

And I go round and round and round and round and round and round

Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.

Sounds rather corny for me to say this is hypnotic but it is! In a wonderful way! Great listen.

Round and round and round and round...

I know that feeling. A heartfelt lyric and eminently relatable. The melody is catchy too. Great backing track as well. Cheers!

Interesting lyrical reflection on how much of our existence is circular. Lovely vocals, keyboards and synths. Well done!

"Future to past to here" - love that line! This is a very nice take on the prompt, with a relatable theme. I think we've all been in that "round and round and round" space "not knowing where [we're] bound."
