"Music to inspire and nourish the soul."

Over and Back

Stress sometimes makes a person's emotions become very volatile and unstable. When this happens a person can feel very out of control and "crazy"! "Over and Back" expresses just that.

Lyrics
Over and Back
Often I feel my life is a yo-yo.
One minute I'm up and the next I am down.
What's jerking my string? What power controls me?
Once more I am spinning around. 
Wish I could find
The way to unwind
And clear my tumultuous mind.

Over and back and 'round and around
Like a spinning wheel
Are these things that I feel.
I'm lonely and sad, then happy and free.
Was it something that you said?
No, it's just me.

As a young child, I played with a yo-yo.
I gave it a jerk, and it climbed to the top,
Then letting it go, it fell to the bottom.
It climbed, then again it would drop.
I did not see
That yo-yo would be
One day exactly like me.

Over and back and 'round and around
Like a spinning wheel
Are these things that I feel.
I'm lonely and sad, then happy and free.
Was it something that you said?
No, it's just me.

I do not know why I ride this yo-yo.
Why do all my feelings jump hither and yon?
I don't understand how I can be happy,
Next moment those feelings are gone.
It is so queer
That they disappear.
Wish I could make them stay here.

Over and back and 'round and around
Like a spinning wheel
Are these things that I feel.
I'm lonely and sad, then happy and free.
Was it something that you said?
No, it's just
Over and back and 'round and around
Like a spinning wheel
Are these things that I feel.
I'm lonely and sad, then happy and free.
Was it something that you said?
No, it's just me.
