A Serious Mistake

from Spinning and Shining by This Blue Heaven

lyrics

(Round and round and round and round
And round and round and round and round...)

It's not as easy
As you might think
To watch him go
To let him drift away

But I won't raise
My wonderhorn now
To call him back
From where he can't return

I was backwards in the rain
Looking for someone to save
When finally I heard their song
The sailor's bottle he lifted it high

Turn around you daughter, turn around
No longer will you roam
Come about you daughter, come about
Go set your course for home

Well I've got notions
Of poetry grand
Of beauty sad
And bittersweet

But I can't abide
That siren's call
I've learned these waters
They have not a shore

I was backwards in the rain
Looking for someone to save
When finally I heard their song
The sailor's bottle he lifted it high

Turn around you daughter, turn around
No longer will you roam
Come about you daughter, come about
Go set your course for home

If I could find his way
Without losing mine
Then maybe I could prove
What I'm worth

But I am worth
More than the compass spinning round and
Round and round and round and round
And round and round and round and round...

Turn around you daughter, turn around
No longer will you roam
Come about you daughter, come about
Go set your course for home

Turn around you daughter, turn around
No longer will you roam
Come about you daughter, come about
Go set your course for home

Go set your course for home
