  • I was there
    When you shone as bright as Bethlehem from afar
    I was there
    When you were young and strong and perverted
    And everything that makes a young man a star
    Oh, you were a star

    I was there
    And I swear to God and on my mother's grave
    On everything I have or ever will embrace
    I was there
    And I saw it with my own two eyes

    And now it's all around me, it's all around me
    I'm surrounded
    And now it's all around me, it's all around me
    You surround me like a circle

    Do, do, do, do, do, do

    I was there
    Come on, tell me I wasn't worth stickin' it out for
    Well, I was there
    And I know I was worth it, 'cause if I wasn't worth it
    That makes me worse off than you are

    It's all around me, it's all around me
    I'm surrounded
    You know it's all around me, it's all around me
    You surround me like a circle

    But don't you lose
    Sight of me now
    Don't you lose
    Sight of me now

    Do, do, do, do, do, do, do
    Don't lose sight of me now

    'Cause I was there
    When they dropped the bomb
    You know I remember the bomb
    And I still hear the bomb
    And I still fight the bomb
    You know I still fear the bomb
    You know I still hate the bomb
    Sometimes I still get the call

    So don't you lose sight of me now
    Don't you lose sight of me now

    You know you're all around me (don't you lose)
    You're all around me
    I'm surrounded (sight of me now)
    You know you're all around me (Don't you lose )
    You're all around me

    I'm surrounded (sight of me now)
    You know you're all around me (don't you lose)
    You're all around me
    I'm surrounded (Sight of me now)
    Now it's all around me (don't you lose)
    You're all around me
    You surround me like a circle

    I'm surrounded, oh

    Ah, ah, like a circle around me

    La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la

    All around me now

  • Graham from North Bay, CanadaDid this one chart the highest on her first album?
    Because I thought "God Made Me" was a bigger hit.
    I could be wrong
  • Laine from Kalamazoo, MiSo sad now that I know the meaning!
  • Sunjay from Toronto, CanadaIt reached #19 on the Adult Top 40 on 1997 and #9 on the Muchmusic 30. Her first breakthrough single.
