Song Description

Story of long distance lovers who never met up again

Story Behind the Song

Written after meeting a Danish woman in Ireland, with plans to meet in New York City, that never came through

Lyrics

The World Turns Round

Sun came up on my street today
You sleep 10,000 miles away
And the world turns round

We found love in a foreign land
Won my heart, when you took my hand
And you layed me down
And the world turned round

Now we send love down long distance lines
Talk for hours and curse the time
Like in Dublin town
Where the world turned round

And there were those who came before us
Rising like a critics chorus
Trying to tell us those two days
Were one night stands

From Denmark to California
Come friendly words "Just trying to warn ya
These things rarely turn out like you planned"
But we took the risk, just like when we began

And New York City the place we'd meet
We'd hold hands down November streets
Then we both backed down
And the world turned round

Now I've known lovers and relations
Like my own United Nations
Trying to tell me to find someone close to home

But this life I chose means travel
And as the miles unravels
I've learned to take my loving when it shows
But it hurt me just that same to watch you go

Now it's late December and looks like rain
My heart keeps singing the same refrain
What's she doing now?
As the world turns round
