"The Circle" as written by and Candice Night Ritchie Blackmore....
I've been here for a million years
Through the joy, through the tears
But when I am gone this will go on
And the circle starts again

I've watched the mountains rise from dust
Saw the gold return to rust
I had cried when the oceans died
And the circle starts again

Oh
Ah

I was here when the world began to turn
Kissed the sun as it started to burn
The whispering at the reckoning said
"The circle starts again"

The moon was rising from above
I caught her eye and thought it was love
But she turned her back, the sky went black
And the circle starts again

Oh
Ah

I danced through castles made of stone
Walked the desert sands alone
In the midnight hour you feel the power
And the circle starts again

Now the question falls to you, my friend
No beginning has no end
Will we ever learn, will the world still turn,
Will the circle start again?

Oh
Ah

    General CommentThe idea is that history repeats itself.

    I've been here for a million years
    trough the joy, through the tears
    but when I'm gone this will go on
    and the circle starts again.
    This is said from the view of a god looking down upon the world he or she created.

    I've watched the mountains rise from dust
    Saw the gold return to rust,
    I had cried when the oceans died,
    and the circle starts again.
    This shows that death comes all the time, and never stops coming.

    I was here when the world began to turn
    Kissed the sun as it started to burn,
    The whispering at the reckoning
    said: "The Circle starts again"
    This shows that life comes all the time.

    The moon was rising from above
    I caught her eye and thought it was love,
    but she turned her back,
    the sky went black,
    and the circle starts again..
    This shows that love and betrayal has always existed and will exist forevermore.

    General CommentThe theme is reincarnation and the continuity of life. "When I'm gone, this will go on..."

    The soul being reincarnated is emphasized here:
    "I dance through castles made of stone; Walked the desert sands alone"
