  • I was looking the wrong way
    When you came into my life
    Like a story returned everyday
    And my heart gave a warning
    And it stopped for a moment
    And I thought I would never get well

    But the poison and passion and action of love
    Running away with me huh
    The fighting and hiding your hating and love
    Until you could set me free

    I was caught in the middle of a rock and a hard place and
    I needed a soft place to fall
    Then you showed me the reason to rely on my feelings
    I had nothing to fear at all

    I'll never go back to that circle of one
    That circle of loneliness yeah
    I'll never go back to that circle of one
    One (ooh)

    I was looking for someway
    To escape to a new life
    Far away from this merry go round

    Then you set us in motion
    With love and devotion
    And I hope that we never come down

    I'll never go back to that circle of one
    That circle of loneliness yeah
    I'll never go back to that circle of one
    That circle of empty-emptiness baby
    I'll never go back to that circle of one
    Circle of
    Circle of
    Circle of
    One (ooh)

    The simple addition of a love in my life
    The failing of a endless void
    It came out of nowhere and
    Stucky like a knife
    It was something to fear in your heart

    Do you, do you, do you, do you, do you, do

    I'll never go back to that circle of one
    That circle of loneliness yeah
    I'll never go back to that circle of one
    That circle of empty-emptiness baby
    I'll never go back to that circle of one
    Never never go back no
    Never never go back no
    I'll never go back to that circle of one
