Lyrics

On our anniversary
There'll be someone else where you used to be
the world don't care and yet it clings to me
the moon is gold and silvery

who knows where the sidewalk ends
well the road will turn and the road will bend
they always say he marks the sparrow's fall
how can anyone believe it all

well the band has stopped playing but we keep dancing
the world keeps turning the world keeps turning
on his hand he wore the ring of another
the world keeps turning the world keeps turning

we broke the bank and we tore up the place
we disappeared oh without a trace
now the sun it falls into the sea
I know I'm the only one for me

I was so green and the dress you wore was yellow
the world keeps turning the world keeps turning
the sun is down and the moon is in the meadow
the world keeps turning the world keeps turning

put a hat on your head
will you paint the whole damn town red with me

well the band has stopped playing but we keep dancing
the world keeps turning the world keeps turning
on his hand he wore the ring of another
the world keeps turning the world keeps turning
