IN THE CIRCLE

Seems like yesterday we broke the ice
Then it melted away in the pouring rain
I took your hand and I

never thought twice
For the first time, I swam against the grain

In the circle, the bells ring
As the clock struck eleven
In the circle

together in a private wing
Of our own little heaven

I sat and closed my eyes
Hoping this wasn’t our first and last kiss
I’m about to say

goodnight, but to my surprise
You take my hand and pull me into the bliss

In the circle, the bells ring
As the clock struck midnight
In the circle I’d give up everything
Just to see the light

Then the stars

poked through the sky
Making way for this paradise
I climbed cloud nine, and I never felt so high
Stood on top and I rolled the dice

In the

circle the bells ring
As the clock struck one
In the circle I still let my world sling
As I slowly climbed over the gun

Then at the speed

of sound
I put the pieces of me back together
The sunlight hit the ground
Shining through the calm after the stormy weather

In the circle

the bells ring
As the clock struck six
In the circle the birds would sing
Until I got another fix


Then

I woke up and I could not shake
Our perfect moment in the sand
I realized my own mistake
rendered nothing but a wish in my hand

In the

circle the bells ring
As the clock struck eight
I wondered if there was anything
In the world that would even halfway compensate

I was

punch drunk with a hangover
On our bench weighed down by this dirty slate
Hoping to find the four leaf clover
I lost after a twenty year wait

Now it’s nothing but a memory I can cherish with a smile
My hurtful words and empty bottles sealed our fate
No longer do I have excuses for

being so useless and vile
Wish I cherished you like I did that night before it was too late…now it’s too late
