lyrics

there once was a child
he thought his smile had been lost in a storm
it had washed away his home and toys and things
and all that was left was a dream every night
in his sleep his room was whole again
and his blanket was ripped in that place just the same
and his favorite bear was in his arms
and they danced round the room and he laughed in his sleep as the bear smiled and said to him,

“please twirl me one more time
and don’t stop spinning me
please swirl me in your mind
so I can be a colored painting that you’ll look upon
spin spin with me…"

I saw a girl last night
she was standing in the light in a corner of the room
she was waiting for a hand
then a boy came over and he asked her to dance
the people all stopped to watch them
they were moving up and down to the waves of the song
they were moving in time with each other
then the girl looked at him and she knew what it was and she smiled as she said to him,

“please twirl me one more time and don’t stop spinning me
please swirl me in your mind so I can be a colored painting that you’ll look upon
don’t stop looking…"

I heard a story bout a man
he came up with a plan for flying
he showed it to his wife
then he said, “now darlin’ why are you cryin’ so?”
and she whispered in his ear
“I’ve a fear that you won’t come back down to this ground”
and he said, “I’ll always come back to you
just help me this once to get higher up” and he kissed her and he said,

“please twirl me one more time and don’t stop spinning me
please swirl me in your mind so I can be a colored painting that you’ll look upon”
and he was up and gone…

there once was a woman lying in bed
with her husband’s head upon her shoulder
he said, “my darlin’ you sound so faint
don’t tell me it’s time I just can’t take this”
and she told him, “please don’t worry dear
there’s nothing to fear in moving on
but there’s one thing I’d like to ask of you”
and he said, “just tell me darlin’ I’ll do anything, anything”
and she said,

“please twirl me one more time and don’t stop spinning me
please swirl me in your mind so I can be a colored painting that you’ll look upon”
and she was off and away…
