Lyrics

I am my very own planet
my own little version of the Earth
I can revolve and revolve and revolve and revolve
without even having to work.

I have my own ugly city
where nobody else wants to be
the streets are rotten and forgotten
and full of misery
they're nothing but another part of me.

How strange the perils that I foresee
when the whole world revolves in me
if one wasted star should dive into the sea
you know there'll be another star for me.

I have my own vast blue ocean
where water and salt won't run dry
the sun could beat down from a cloudless sky
but still I know everything will be all right.

I think of the sunlight more than I should
I want it to stay here
I want to be good
but I can only be the way that nature intends
so on nature the sun and I'll depend.

I'll keep on turning till I wonder
how it is that I go
sometimes the hardest part is that I'll never know.

I am my very own planet
my own little version of the Earth
I can revolve and revolve and revolve and revolve
without even having to work.
