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.

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)

    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.

    Great song, the sound of it is beautiful.
    Yet, how pitiful.
    What a sad way of looking at it.
    I am more than... dust, in the wind.

    Life is fleeting...without a belief in some kind of hereafter all that is left is that your born, you breath and die in such a very short time return to the dust.
