Tell me now how your life making
Has become a cold lonely place
You work all alone, and at each corner turn
You're meeting yourself face to face
You tell of doubts and lost
And plans that melt in the sun
You're wondering how you can keep to your purpose
You don't know if you can go on
Imagine yourself in the center
of a circle
Of loving friends holding you tonight
Arms around each other, we're swaying to the music
That's rising from each of our lives
Here you will find the courage
To be what you need to be
Imagine yourself in the center of a circle
The next one in the center may be me.
The cold light of morning falls
on your eyes
As you wake to the day's work undone
The face in the mirror is haunted and pale
Reflecting your life all alone
But I have seen you shining
in the night
Singing like the pull of the moon
Creating a tide that sweeps us along
Coming home with you in your song.
Here you will find...
Each of us will stand in the
center of the circle
The next one in the center will be me.
