WATCHING THE WHEELS


People say I'm crazy doing what I'm doing
Well, they give me all kinds of warnings
To save me from ruin
When I say that I'm ok
Well, they look at me kinda strange
Surely, you're not happy now
You no longer play the game

People say I'm lazy dreaming my life away
Well, they give me all kinds of advice
Designed to enlighten me
When I tell them that I'm doing fine 
Watching shadows on the wall
Don't you miss the big time, boy
You're no longer on the ball?

I'm just sitting here watching the wheels 
Go round and round
I really love to watch them roll
No longer riding on the merry-go-round
I just had to let it go

Ah, people asking questions lost in confusion
Well, I tell them there's no problem
Only solutions
Well, they shake their heads and they look at me
As if I've lost my mind
I tell them there's no hurry
I'm just sitting here doing time

I'm just sitting here watching the wheels
Go round and round
I really love to watch them roll
No longer riding on the merry-go-round

I just had to let it go
I just had to let it go
I just had to let it go

(John Lennon)
