Josh Ritter - Orbital Lyrics

So it was that everything

That went to make up everything

Was wrapped up tight inside a grain

Of great insistence

Then someone gave the great command

All things paired off for the dance

The great to small the small to grand

Down to this instant


The hawk around the field mouse

The love around a lover’s mouth

I find my mind in settling down

In circuits round you

The angels ‘round their crowded pins

The amber-waved electrons spin

In planetary transits

Round the ones they’re bound to


Who do you circle round

Who is it circles round you

Is it circles round you?

Who is it circles round you

Do you circle round who

It is circles round you?

The ghost around the one it haunts

The want around the thing that wants

The way the mind just wanders off and then returns to

The thought around the second thought

Love or gravity or law

Whatever name it’s got it’s got me

Circling round you

The guess around the second guess

The hornet round the hornet’s nest

The wheel time the wheel fate

The light that bends itself through space

The light that with it carries time

Which also bends in the same line

Relative to point of view

So when I catch a glimpse of you

Every time you come around

The room lights up

And time slow tooooooooooooo!
