"Known chiefly for making a Coca-Cola jingle into a massive worldwide hit, the New Seekers ostensibly grew out of the ashes of the Australian folk-rock outfit the Seekers ("Georgy Girl"). Although their clear harmonies, pop leanings, and squeaky-clean image were similar to the original band, their actual connection was tenuous at best. After the Seekers disbanded, guitarist/vocalist Keith Potger put together an otherwise completely new band in late 1969: female vocalists Eve Graham and Sally Graham (no relation), guitarists/vocalists Laurie Heath and Marty Kristian, and bassist/vocalist Chris Barrington. Potger christened them the New Seekers and produced their self-titled 1970 debut album, and while he did sing with them at first, he soon retired from both performance and production to become their manager, leaving them with no members of the original Seekers. His last appearance was on the ironically titled follow-up Keith Potger and the New Seekers, which was issued before the end of the year and featured numerous personnel changes; only Eve Graham and Marty Kristian remained, joined by singer Lyn Paul and guitarists/vocalists Paul Layton and Peter Doyle. "

All my life's a circle; Sunrise and sundown;
Moon rolls thru the nighttime; Till the daybreak comes around.
All my life's a circle; But I can't tell you why;
Season's spinning round again; The years keep rollin' by.

It seems like I've been here before; I can't remember when;
But I have this funny feeling; That we'll all be together again.
No straight lines make up my life; And all my roads have bends;
There's no clear-cut beginnings; And so far no dead-ends.

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

Song is just so fraggin' true. It amazes me.

Rolling Stone Top 500 Songs ranked this song at Number (Nope, They hated it) and the Album ranked at Number (Nope, didn't know it was out yet)
Maybe When Rolling Stone do a "Top 500 Lyrics of all Time", this might make the List. I just won't count on it.

This song has a crowbarred rating of 55.9 out of 108
