Sarah Brightman - Dust in the wind

I close my eyes, only for a moment and the moment's gone.
All my dreams pass before my eyes in curiosity.
Dust in the wind.
All they are is dust in the wind.
Same old song.
Just a drop of water in an endless sea.
All we do crumbles to the ground, though we refuse to see.
Dust in the wind.
All we are is dust in the wind.

Don't hang on, nothing lasts forever but the earth and sky.
It slips away and all your money won't another minute buy.
Dust in the wind.
All we are is dust in the wind.
Dust in the wind.
Everything is dust in the wind.

Music and lyrics: Kerry Livgren

From: Eden (1998).
and from: Live from Las Vegas (2004).

Source of the lyrics: the CD-booklet,
except for the last two lines.

The second line of the 2nd stanza has in the booklet "wont", but that is a misprint: it should be "won't", the contraction of "will not", as I suspected and Heather Landaiche confirmed.
Heather added that Dust in the wind is actually a song that come out about 20 or so years ago by an American group called Kansas.
Bill Evans of Numavox Records confirmed this and added that the Kansas album is called "Point of Know Return". Bill also corrected the author's name, which is misspelled in the CD-booklet as "K. Lirgren": it is "Kerry Livgren".
