Back to the Circus |
What a fun song to play. Every musician needs that song that they love when it comes during the setlist. This song drives so well and symbolism of the possible agony of calling "she" out shows.

This is starting to become a fan favorite (quoting from friends). This is a song that I love doing solo or with a band, and even acapella (yep).

Enjoy this song. For yourself. For me.


Verse |
There’s so much to say,
but I hear static on the line.
Baby you’re breaking up,
as we are breaking up
what I still can’t define.

There’s so much to say
about the way you rule my mind,
but I just can’t compete,
so I’m stuck out on the street
trying to pass the time.

Chorus |
Now this alleyway is all mine.

Verse 2 |
I’m out of time.
I let my hair grow too long.
She’s the one I blame
for making me insane.
Now I know I was wrong.

I’m out of time.
I pulled the line for too long.
It’s just not the same
singing in the rain
when you’re alone.

Chorus |
But I hear the circus calling me home
Yes I hear the circus calling me home.
