Circus Lyrics

This song appears on two albums, and was first released on the Rhymes and Reasons album, and has also been released on The Country Roads Collection album.

If I look like home to you, if I am your sign
Don't try to understand it, girl, when I draw the line
It hasn't come to this that you can say I waste my time
Looking everywhere, going nowhere

For the skies they look so lazy now, heavy are the clouds
There's nothing here that I could learn or what it's all about
You haven't said a thing to me and you talk so very loud
Looking everywhere, going nowhere

Well I think I'll try the circus or go back to Mexico
It's time to make mistakes again, it's time to change the show
It's time and time and time again to find another way
It's time to gather forces and get out of yesterday

Because I lost what I was looking for, there's nothing left to share
I need to take myself away to be some other where
A face, a life, a minute more, I don't think I can spare
Looking everywhere, going nowhere

Cause I tell you when you hurt me and you just don't seem to know
I inform you that I'm lonely and you still don't think I'll go
So if I lie to you and smile a thought, it's only half way here
It's just the circus, and I'm singing I'm never really near

If I look like home to you, If I am your sign
Don't try to understand it, girl, when I draw the line
It hasn't come to this that you can say I waste my time
Looking everywhere
Looking everywhere
Looking anywhere, going nowhere
