Josh Ritter lyrics : "Orbital"

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!
