"Sometimes I get this crazy dream that I just take off in my car...

...but you can travel on ten thousand miles, and still stay where you are..."

Harry Forster Chapin (December 7, 1942 – July 16, 1981) was an American singer-songwriter best known for his folk rock songs, including "Taxi", "W*O*L*D", and the number-one hit "Cat's in the Cradle". Chapin was also a dedicated humanitarian who fought to end world hunger; he was a key player in the creation of the Presidential Commission on World Hunger in 1977. In 1987, Chapin was posthumously awarded the Congressional Gold Medal for his humanitarian work. (Click here for full article.)

All my life's a circle, sunrise and sundown
The moon rolls through the night-time, 'til the daybreak comes around
All my life's a circle, but I can't tell you why
The seasons spinning 'round again, the years keep rolling by

It seems like I've been here before, I can't remember when
But I've got this funny feeling that we'll all get together again
There's no straight lines make up my life, and all my roads are bends
There's no clear-cut beginnings and so far no dead ends

I've found you a thousand times, I guess you've done the same
But then we lose each other, it's like a children's game
As I find you here again the thought runs through my mind
Our love is like a circle, let's go round one more time
