lyrics

Verse 1
Familiar sights roll by the window as I'm coasting down the road
We've got directions, where we’re going but, nobody really knows
We’ve been driving, round in circles now, same way every day
If the wheels turn, if the people come, then well...

Chorus
If you want it, come and take it now, fortune will descend
Love is forever, no doubt about it now, Vera Martin said

Verse 2
Roll the windows down, take in the towns as you pass them by
Fell asleep for what seemed like hours to me
If the wheels turn, if the people come, happens either way
We’ve been driving round in circles all day...

Chorus
If you want it, come and take it now, fortune will descend
The greatest is love, no doubt about it now, Vera Martin said

Bridge
Fortune smiles, good luck today
Will it hold, tomorrow never knows

Verse 3
Unconcerned with time we set out again, in the morning light
Destination's less important than where we sleep tonight
If we ever reach our Ithaca should we even care?
There’s more to see on the way than once you’re there...

Chorus
If you want it, come and take it now, fortune will descend
Love is forever, no doubt about it now, Vera Martin said

There are riches headed your way, good things are bound to come
If you're wise and, you laugh now, wait till you get home.

Bridge
Fortune smiles, good luck today
Will it hold, tomorrow never knows
