Tuesday Song 5-3-16

Good morning everyone and happy Tuesday! I hope your week is off to a great start! Today’s song puts life into perspective for me. This song makes me realize I shouldn’t take life so seriously. It reminds me to take a step back and appreciate all of the beauty there is in this life. Even though my parents played other Kansas songs, this is the only one that really stands out for me. It’s the only song I like from them. Although other bands and singers have covered the song throughout the years, the original is my favorite. Rock bands such as Scorpions and Linkin Park have covered “Dust in the Wind.” One cover song of “Dust in the Wind” I almost liked was by Sarah Brightman. I chose this video because I think it has nice graphics. Have a great Tuesday, everyone!

Dust in the Wind Lyrics

I close my eyes, only for a moment, and the moment’s gone
All my dreams pass before my eyes, a curiosity

Dust in the wind
All we 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

Oh -oh -oh

Now, 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 (All we are is dust in the wind)

Dust in the wind (Everything is dust in the wind)
Everything is dust in the wind


  1. Thank you so much for the kind words of encouragement, Lisa. It means so much to my family that you will put us in consideration and in your heart. Thanks again!

  2. Hello Christopher! I’m very sorry your family is going through this. Most of all, I’m sorry about your mother. I will keep you and your family in my prayers. I don’t have much money right now. I might have some this weekend. If I do, I will donate what I can. Take care!


  3. Lisa,


    I just wanted to thank you SOOOO much for taking the time to read the blog post I made that Erika Kind reblogged titled “Please Help Our Momma” (https://protomarq.wordpress.com/2016/05/02/helpourmomma/) about the on-going struggles that my family is facing after my mom was diagnosed with stage three colon cancer. It’s been an uphill battle but we have been blessed with so much love, support and encouragement that I don’t know what we would have done without it. It may not seem like much in the grand scheme of things but just knowing that you took time to support our cause seriously means the world to me and my little family. I would like to humbly ask that if you are in the position to contribute something (anything!) to our cancer relief crowd funding campaign it would make a serious impact, even just $5.00, because every little bit makes such a HUGE difference. If you are unable to (and we completely understand) please, at the very least, consider reblogging the “Please Help Our Momma” post to your readers and/or share the campaign on whatever social media outlets you utilize for your readers because maybe we might get in front of the right people who have the means to help my family stay afloat during this time. Thank you so much! Here’s a direct link to the campaign as well. https://igg.me/at/Hz9-ILFN2P0

    Thanks again. Seriously!

    Christopher Michael

  4. This was always a favorite. Simple yet meaningful lyrics. Sort of a more melodic version of “remember man, that thou art dust….” Thanks for sharing. Great video. ☺
