The Circle Game Songtext
von Buffy Sainte‐Marie

The Circle Game Songtext

Yesterday a child came out to wonder
Caught a dragonfly inside a jar
Fearful when the sky was full of thunder
And tearful at the falling of a star

Then the child moved ten times round the seasons
Skated over ten clear frozen streams
Words like, when you're older, must appease him
And promises of someday make his dreams

And the seasons they go round and round
And the painted ponies go up and down
We're captive on the carousel of time
We can't return we can only look behind
From where we came
And go round and round and round
In the circle game


Sixteen springs and sixteen summers gone now
Cartwheels turn to car wheels through the town
And they tell him
Take your time, it won't be long now
Till you drag your feet to slow the circles down

So the boy who dreamed tomorrow now is twenty
Though his dreams have lost some grandeur coming true
They'll be new dreams, maybe better dreams and plenty
Before the last revolving year is through

And the seasons they go round and round
And the painted ponies go up and down
We're captive on the carousel of time
We can't return we can only look behind
From where we came
And go round and round and round
In the circle game
And go round and round and round
In the circle game
