I close my eyes, only for a moment, and the moment's gone
All my dreams, pass before my eyes, a 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
Dust in the wind, all we are is dust in the wind.
Oh________________


Don't hang on, nothing lasts forever but the earth and sky
It slips away, all your money won't another minute buy

Dust in the wind, all we are is dust in the wind
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)

    Life is short. Enjoy every minute of it with your family and your friends. We don't know if we have a tomorrow.

    she hides her eyes -
    It's true, but that is the case with so many great groups. But at least the songs they are famous for are good songs. And at least they managed to make a name for themselves with these songs. It would be a shame if they were totally unheard of too.

    what a waste of a good song. kansas has plenty of other great hits, not just "dust in the wind" and "carry on my wayward son". Its a shame that Kansas is famous just for these songs.
