BILL ANDERSON lyrics - Watching It Go

BILL ANDERSON
"Watching It Go"

It seems that I'm spendin' most of my life
Spendin' ten cents while I'm makin' a dime
Tryin' to make sense out of life's mixed up rhyme
Meantime I'm watching it go.

Clouds in my head they keep crowding my brain
Fair weather thoughts disappear with the rain
I'm chasing rainbows that never remain
Helplessly watching life go.

Watching it go
Wanting to know
Where do you go
Where you've been?

Poor Cinderella she's bowing her head
Tellin' some stranger what a hard life she's led
Glass slippers. fast asleep under the bed
Sadly I'm watching her go.

Prince charming dressed in disarming disguise
Flashin' his charms as he's blinding her eyes
Morning will hear him say his sunshine goodbye
Just the way I used to go.

Watching it go
Wanting to know
Where do you go
Where you've been?

My Lord it seems I've tried so many things
Walking on crutches and calling them wings
Wondering who's pulling the puppeteer's strings, hmm
I'm wantin' to know.

I feel so confined I keep wanting to roam
Looking for a life that won't be so alone
Singing in my soul Lord I want to go home
Knowin' I never can go.

Watching it go
Wanting to know
Where do you go
When you've been...
