Acappella – Dust In The Wind lyrics

Oh oh oh oh
Hey yeah yeah
All we are is dust in the wind
Oh oh oh

I close my eyes, only for a moment and the moment's gone
All my dreams (all my dreams)
Pass before my eyes (pass before my eyes)
A curiosity (that we are)

Chorus 1:
Dust in the wind, all they are is dust in the wind (all we are is dust)

Repeat Chorus 1

It's the same old song (same old song)
Just a drop of water in an endless sea (drip, drop, same old song)
All we do (all we do) crumbles to the ground, though we refuse to see
(Crumbles down)

Chorus 2:
That we are dust... dust in the wind (dust in the wind)
All we are is dust in the wind (all we are is dust)
All we are (dust in the wind) dust in the wind (all we are is dust, dust in
The wind)

Need to wake up
Surprise, the lies, deceive my eyes
And even now another baby in a barren land cries,
Are we too thick to realize?
That nobody ever knows when you could vaporize

Still we sit and fantasize
The TV and the radio demoralize
We need to look up to the skies
Don't allow the very hearts of man to crystallize (all we are is dust)
Turn off that big screen TV
Stop trying to take it easy
Get off your couch, open up your mouth (oh my Lord)
And spread the word universally

So don't hang on (don't you hang on)
Nothing lasts forever, not the earth or sky (nothin' lasts forever)
It's all gonna slip away (slips away)
And not even your money (your money) another minute buy (time keeps on tick
Tock tickin')

Chorus 3:
Dust in the wind (all we are is dust)
All they are is dust (all we are is dust)
Dust in the wind, ohhh (all we are is dust)

Dust in the wind
We need to end our fussing and fighting
To take some time for reuniting
All we are is dust
All we are is dust, dust in the wind
