Dust In The Wind Lyrics

I close my eyes
Only for a moment and the moment's gone
All my dreams
Pass before my eyes with curiosity

Dust in the wind
All they are is dust in the wind

Same old song
Just a drop of water in an endless sea
All we do
Crumbles to the ground, though we refuse to see

(Aa aa aa)
Dust in the wind
All we are is dust in the wind
Oh, ho, ho

Now don't hang on
Nothin' last forever but the earth and sky
It slips away
And all your money won't another minute buy

Dust in the wind
All we are is dust in the wind
(All we are is dust in the wind)

Dust in the wind
(Everything is dust in the wind)
Everything is dust in the wind
(In the wind)

It can only mean to expect the unexpected for we can never know what is to come in our existence. We were created to enjoy the earth as much as we can. From where we came from and to where we are going, in the end we will be just like the Dust In the Wind.

When I listened to this song for the first time it made me stop and think; maybe life isn't about being the richest; maybe it's not about leaving behind a legacy; maybe it's about living life while you have it. Squeeze all the good things into your existence while you still have the time to do it.

My Daddy loved this song. Back around '99, standin in his bar, with this song on the jukebox, he told me if something ever happened to him, he wanted to be cremated, and to play this song at his srvc.
