  • 7. Kansas - Dust in the Wind
  • 8. I close my eyes,
    only for a moment
    and the moment's
    gone.
    All my dreams
    pass before my eyes a
    curiosity.
    Dust in the wind,
    all we are is dust in the
    wind.
  • 9. Same old song,
    just a drop of water
    in the endless sea.
    All we do,
    crumbles to the ground
    though we refuse to see.
    Dust in the wind,
    all we are is dust in the wind.
  • 10. Now, don't hang on
    nothing last forever
    but the earth and sky
    it slips away.
    And all your money
    won't another minute
    buy.
  • 11. Dust in the wind,
    all we are is dust in the wind.
    Dust in the wind,
    everything is dust in the wind.
