  • Sometimes I feel I'm going nowhere
    Sometimes I'm sure I never will
    She said it's 'cause I'm always moving
    I never notice 'cause I never stand still

    Sometimes I feel like I'm falling
    Falling fast and falling free
    She said, "My darling you're not falling
    Always looked like you were flying to me"

    But I fear I've grown a rolling stone inside of me
    She said, "Oh don't you know
    The rolling stones stop at the sea
    And that's where I'll be"

    Sometimes I'm sure I know no one
    A thousand faces but no names
    She said, "My love you do know someone
    Oh and I know you back just the same"

    "But I'm scared," I said, "What if this stone don't slow down?"
    "Oh just be aware," she said
    "What goes up will come down
    And when you do I'll be around"

    Oh when I've dragged this rolling stone across this land
    I'll make sure I leave this stone in her hand
    For we both know too well, the rolling stones turn into sand
    If they don't find a place to stand Writer/s: Michael David Rosenberg
