Circles in Squares

Album: About Time (2013)

Songfacts®:

  • Angel explained the song's meaning to Blues and Soul magazine: "I'm talking about how people embrace you differently after you start climbing up the ladder," he said. "You know, people who just weren't there for you in that kind of way before, now they see you progressing are suddenly around you like Leeches! So yeah, just like when you meet me in real-life what you see is what you get, I try to keep it just as real through my music."
