Circles

Album: The Party Scene (2005)
  • Inquisitive and thoughtful
    She was the challenge he'd been waiting for
    A reminder that creativity runs deep, like secrets
    Dark eyed dreamers - they were a dangerous pair
    "Q" next to "U", scribbled out on paper

    They stop
    They go
    They're done

    Go back to the place we knew before
    Retrace our steps to the basement door
    I'll ask you if the rain still makes you smile
    Like so much time that we spent in the fall
    Put color in our cheeks while the air turned cold
    Preceding what became our bitter end

    Round in circles - let's start over
    Round in circles - let's start over

    Unanswered questions
    Would be the only thing to stop them now
    He was the poet, while she was the muse
    She had a pen that she knew how to use
    A touch of redemption, a hint of elation
    A recipe for disaster

    Go back to the place we knew before
    Retrace our steps to the basement door
    I'll ask you if the rain still makes you smile
    Like so much time that we spent in the fall
    Put color in our cheeks while the air turned cold
    Preceding what became our bitter end

    Let this be a lesson to us all

    Round in circles - let's start over
    Round in circles - let's start over

    Round in circles
    Round in circles
    Round in circles
    Round in circles
