"Windmills of your mind" by Noel Harrison

Amazing lyrics. this is part of the soundtrack of a movie called"The thomas crown affair"(not the Brosnan version but an older one)

Round
Like a circle in a spiral, Like a wheel within a wheel
Never ending or beginning, On an ever-spinning reel
Like a snowball down a mountain, Or a carnival balloon
Like a carousel thats turning
Running rings around the moon

Like a clock whose hands are sweeping, Past the minutes of its face
And the world is like an apple, Whirling silently in space

Like the circles that you find
In the windmills of your mind
Like a tunnel that you follow
To a tunnel of its 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 of its face

And the world is like an apple, Whirling silently in space

Like the circles that you find
In the windmills of your mind

Keys that jingle in your pocket
Words that jangle in your head,
Why did summer go so quickly?
Was it something that you said?

Lovers walk along a shore
And leave their footprints in the sand

Is the sound of distant drumming
Just the fingers of your hand?
Pictures hanging in a hallway
And the fragment of a song
Half-remembered names and faces
But to whom do they belong?

When you knew that it was over
You were suddenly aware
That the autumn leaves were turning
To the colour of her hair

Like a circle in a spiral
Like a wheel within a wheel
Never ending or beginning
On an ever-spinning reel
As the images unwind

Like the circles that you find
In the windmills of your mind
