Tuck Everlasting - The Wheel Lyrics

A New Broadway Musical (2016)
Tuck Everlasting the Musical - The Wheel Lyrics


Song from the musical 'Tuck Everlasting' performed by Michael Park (Angus) and Sarah Charles Lewis (Winnie).

I bet you didn’t know that the sun took a shine water
She drinks up a bit but floats it up to the sky
Now what she takes from our lake
will make her a storm cloud that rumbles and tumbles rain
From up high, high, high

It’s a wheel Winnie
This journey of ours
Sun to lake to cloud that showers rain back to the lake below
And you’ll ride that wheel wherever you go

Not a minute or moment is the same
The wheel keeps you guessing
And everything around you is along for the ride
The pond, the bullfrogs, the birch trees, and hound dogs plus people, all people ebb and flow
With the tide, tide, tide,

It’s a wheel Winnie
A ripple in water
Girl to wife to mother to daughter
Like all you kinfolk
Come and gone
Can’t stop growing, rowing, changing then moving on

Once you drop an anchor, the boat gets stuck and it could stay forever
Just floating on top
Watching life pass it by                                          Watching life pass it by
Just floating up top                                               Just floating up top
That’s what us tucks are
Just floating stuck
Show me how to climb back on the wheel
I’d be there slick as a slingshot
Prepare to get off at the end
And share with someone my spot
You can’t have living without dying
so you can’t call this living what we got

We just are
We just be
No before
No beyond
A rowboat anchored in the middle of a pond
Do you see now child do you understand?
it’s a wheel
It’s a wheel Winnie
A ripple in water                                                            A ripple in water
Girl to wife to mother to daughter                                   Girl to wife to mother to daughter
Like all you kinfolk                                                          Like all your kinfolk
Come and gone                                                            Come and gone

It’s a wheel
It’s a wheel Winnie
A circle in motion                                                              a circle in motion
Can’t stop rowing, growing, changing and moving on            Can’t stop growing, rowing, changing
Can’t stop rowing, growing, and changing then moving on     and moving on
.                                                                                      Can’t stop growing, rowing, and
.                                                                                      changing then moving on
