Em
Round, like a circle in a spiral
                                 H7
Like a wheel within a wheel.
Never ending or beginning,
                                Em
On an ever spinning reel.
                                     E7
Like a snowball down a mountain
                          Am7
Or a carnaval balloon
                                  D7
Like a carousell that’s turning
                                         G
Running rings around the moon.

                                              C
Like a clock whose hands are sweeping
                                     F#m7b5
Past the minutes on it’s face
                                     H7
And the world is like an apple
                              B
Whirling silently in space.
                                     H7
Like the circles that you find
                                      Em
In the windmills of your mind!

Like a tunnel that you follow
To a tunnel of it’s own
Down a hollow to a cavern
Where the sun has never shone
Like a door that keeps revolving
In a half forgotten dream
Or the ripples from a pebble
Someone tosses in a stream.

Like a clock whose hands are sweeping
Past the minutes on it’s face
And the world is like an apple
Whirling silently in space
Like the circles that you find
In the windmills of your mind

Em
Keys that jingle in your pocket
                                    Am7
Words that jangle your head
                                     D7
Why did summer go so quickly?
                                     G
Was it something that I said?
                                     G7
Lovers walking allong a shore,
                                            C
Leave their footprints in the sand.
                                        F#7
Was the sound of distant drumming
                                          Hm
Just the fingers of your hand?

Hm                            E7
Pictures hanging in a hallway
                                    Am
And a fragment of this song
                                              D7
Half remembered names and faces,
                                     G
But to whom do they belong?
                                          C
When you knew that it was over
                               F#m7b5
Were you suddenly aware.
                                             H7
That the autumn leaves were turning
                              Em
To the color of her hair.

Em 
Like a circle in a spiral
                                 H7
Like a wheel within a wheel
Never ending or beginning,
                                 B
On an ever spinning reel
                          Em
As the images unwind
                                     H7
Like the circles that you find
                                     Em
In the windmills of your mind!
