The Circle

from the 1993 album 'Calling From A Country Phone'.

Sheís in a circle and theyíve all been with each other
It reminds her of a thing that she once said to her mother
You know everyone in the world must know each other
She looks at her man, her sullen man
We donít know each other

She has the means but no savings bank dreams to travel
She thought sheíd lost it, got caught up in the gossip
Of men too scared to come out of the closet
Her days did not reflect theyíre as cold as her coffee
Her morning dose that keeps her close to the beauty of her body

Itís that time of night when old friends who shouldnít turn to each other
And say you know Iíve always found you so attractive
And she said no, no, no, donít say that to me
Canít you see Iíd rather be with someone outside the circle?

Canít you see Iíd rather be with someone outside the circle
Canít you see Iíd rather be with someone outside the circle
Canít you see Iíd rather be with somebody outside the circle
Canít you see Iíd rather be with someone outside the circle

Canít you see Iíd rather be with someone outside the circle
Canít you see Iíd rather be with someone outside the circle

You go to live it breathe it seize it
Outside the circle
The circle
