LYRICS

1. Circus Lights

 

(Verse I)

 

She was a dreamer

Singing on swings at age 5

 

With no fears or inhibitions 

Til they she’s no good 

It’s not right

 

It’s an impossible dream

Impossible dream

So she sang in closets quietly

 

It’s an impossible dream

Impossible dream

Their voices in her mind

Played on repeat but

 

(Chorus)

 

The fire inside, the fire inside

It rises til she can’t fight it

 

The fire inside 

They said she couldn’t do it

And crushed her pride

 

So she ran away

She couldn’t stay 

In a mundane life slowly dying inside

 

The music’s calling 

She could see the glow on the horizon

Of the circus lights

 

Follow the circus lights

 

(Verse II)

 

All magic and mystique 

She sees it on tv 

and billboards on streets

 

But that’ll never be you or me

They say stick to your lane

And you’ll succeed

 

It’s an impossible dream

Impossible dream

 

So she went off to college to study

Anything else

Her dreams they were shelved

 

But they’re just delaying

The inevitable cause

 

(Chorus)

 

The fire inside, the fire inside

It rises til she can’t fight it

 

She tried to hide it

Til she realized

She didn’t want anything else

 

So she ran away

She couldn’t stay 

In a mundane life slowly dying inside

 

The music’s calling 

She could see the glow on the horizon

Of the circus lights

 

Follow the circus lights

 

(Bridge)

 

So run away

Run away with me

 

Join the circus 

in the land of impossible dreams

 

Cause if no one took the chance

There would be no songs to sing

 

They say it’s an impossible dream

Impossible dream

But here I am

Here I sing

 

It’s an impossible dream

Impossible dream

But here I stand

Here I scream

 

(Chorus)

 

Cause that fire inside, fire inside

It rises til we can’t fight it

 

No more hiding 

It keeps your light from shining

This is our life

 

I ran away

I couldn’t stay 

In a mundane life slowly dying inside

 

The music called me 

I could see the glow on the horizon

Of the circus lights

 

Follow the circus lights

 

Follow the circus lights

 

Cause nothing ever felt so right

 

Follow the circus lights

2. Heart of a Beast

 

(Verse I) 

The heart wants what it wants

And I feel betrayed

You keep your heart locked away

And yet I stay 

(Ooohs) 

(Chorus) 

But how long can I wait?

I’ve been fighting with all of my strength

Gave you every trust and benefit

But now, all that’s left is doubt 

Your heart can’t be undone

This fight won’t be won

 

(Verse II) 

Tell me the way out

Give me an escape

You’re a spider wrapping me up

Sucking life from my veins

 

But you can’t kill the hopeless in me

I still think your mind will change 

(Chorus) 

But how long can I wait?

I’ve been fighting with all of my strength

Gave you every trust and benefit

But now all that’s left is doubt 

Your heart can’t be undone

This fight won’t be won 

(Verse III) 

Tears cried for so long

You don’t want to be wrong

Cause you tried for so long 

But you were so wrong

Tears cried for so long

I was so wrong

So wrong

So wrong

So wrong 

(End verse) 

But commitment to the wrong path

doesn’t change

The madness of the misguided chase 

My conviction increases

with each passing day

Cause the harder I try

The more noble the fight

 

But the beast doesn’t love his prey

But he doesn’t want it to get away

Why let go when you can still play?

And I still think your mind will change

 

I beg you

love me, love me, love me, love me

Or lose me, lose me, lose me, lose me

Choose me, chose me, choose me,

Set me free 

I beg you

love me, love me, love me, love me

Or lose me, lose me, lose me, lose me

Choose me chose me choose me,

Set me free 

Love me, love me

Lose me, lose me

Choose me

Set me free 

Love me, love me

Lose me, lose me

Choose me

Set me free 

 

Set me free 

Set me free 

Set me free

3. My Mind

(Verse I)

 

Carving names in park benches

Reading quotes in bathroom stalls

Inspired to inspire

Jumbled thoughts within our minds

Separated by yellow lines

We’re all passing strangers in the same life

 

But we’ll never know each other

We’re looking at phones instead of faces

 

But where we escape in our minds

Can be the realest places

 

Secrets buried like bones

We don’t want to be alone

But it feels easier than

Bearing our souls

 

I’m lost in my mind

You’re lost in my eyes

But do you really see me?

 

(Chorus)

 

You say you’re afraid

To love me

But you say you’re scared

To lose me

 

You say you’re afraid

To love me

But you say you’re scared

To lose me

 

(Verse II)

 

Well I’m a reckless wanderer

A little bit adventurer

But I’m just laying here in bed

 

Maybe in another life 

I’d be up on mountainsides

Living big before I’m dead

 

With spiritual journeys

And meeting those who impact me

 

I’m walking city streets 

With music in my head

 

Working tirelessly

But barely working

Tired from not being where I’m at

 

Keeping time and losing time 

In the very same moment

We can’t hold it

 

Even memories are fleeting

No amnesia needed

To forget me

 

(Chorus)

 

You say you’re afraid

To love me

But you say you’re scared

To lose me

 

You say you’re afraid

To love me

But you say you’re scared

To lose me

 

(End Verse)

 

Well I’ve got something on my mind

Could you get it for me

Cause I’m losing my mind

 

I’m losing my mind

Could you find it for me?

 

I’m losing my mind

Could you find it for me?

 

I’m losing my mind

(losing my mind, losing my mind, losing my mind)

I’m losing my mind

(losing my mind, losing my mind, losing my mind)

I’m losing my mind

(losing my mind, losing my mind, losing my mind)

 

I’m losing my mind

You’re losing me too 

4. "Walls"

(Verse I)

 Water dancing on window panes

 

Quietly listening to the rain

Cuddling chrysalism 

Cause you’re not here

 

Rhythmic synchronicity 

Of rain matching my tears

(Chorus)

Cause you are on the other side

And you can’t be saved 

Though I’ve tried

 

We’re building walls 

Instead of bridges

Might as well grow wings

To scale your defenses

 

Cause the barriers grow

The quicksand thickens

We’re staying in place

There’s no connection

 

(Verse II)

And I crave opia

Don’t look away 

Just open up

 

Like a flower in spring

A flower in bloom

 

How do you think 

they feel the sun?

 

Cause if you stay closed

You cannot grow

And I don’t think 

You want to be alone

 

(Chorus)

But you are on the other side

And you can’t be saved 

Though I’ve tried

 

We’re building walls 

Instead of bridges

Might as well grow wings

To scale your defenses

 

Cause the barriers grow

The quicksand thickens

We both have to try

If we’re gonna fix this

 

(Bridge)

And we agreed 

I wouldn’t write more bout you

 

But I have seen

As time moves by 

You still haven’t moved

 

And I’ve been patient 

And I have loved you

But you’re more afraid of feeling 

Than what you’d lose

 

And it seems you don’t believe

There’s anything at stake

 

(Chorus/End Verse)

Cause you are on the other side

And you are getting left behind

 

You’re building walls 

Instead of bridges

And I’d grow wings

But you’d shoot me down

 

Cause you’re more afraid of living

Than of hiding

And you don’t want to fix this

 

You

You

You’re building walls 

Instead of bridges

And I can’t keep 

Trying to fix this

 

Maybe one day you’ll regret

The paralyzing fear

That let me slip away  

5. SKY

(Verse I)

 

I’m constantly reminded 

Of my human ways

Cause everything I do

Is mistake, mistake, mistake

 

It’s humbling

 

And that which makes me awkward

It’s easy to wish away

 

But if I’m self-loathing

How’s anybody supposed to love me?

 

And they say the stress is just the clouds

And I’m the sky

 

The storm will pass sometime

And I’ll be fine

 

(Chorus)

 

But I’ve been seeing 

overcast storm clouds

For the past

Couple of years now

 

And it’s becoming exhausting

Making it moment to moment

Waiting for a clearing

 

(Verse II)

 

But they say

I am the sky

 

They say 

I am the sky

I am the sky

 

And the pain I feel 

Is just the storm to pass

 

But I feel closer to the ground

Than to the sky

 

Rain isn't falling down from me

It’s falling on me 

Pushing me further down

 

I’m a wilted flower

Barely holding it together

 

(Chorus)

 

But I’ve been seeing 

overcast storm clouds

For the past

Couple of years now

 

And it’s becoming exhausting

Making it moment to moment

Waiting for a clearing

 

(Bridge)

 

What keeps me going 

is the music

Cause I think someone 

Might want to hear me

 

What keeps me going 

are my lyrics

To think I could help someone like me

 

What keeps me going 

Are the ones that I love

 

What keeps me going is knowing

There’s something more

Than just this feeling that 

I’m holding inside

 

And they say it’s just the weather

I’ve got to let it ride

 

(Chorus)

But I’ve been seeing 

overcast storm clouds

For the past

Couple of years now

 

And it’s becoming exhausting

Making it moment to moment

Waiting for a clearing

 

I’ve been seeing 

overcast storm clouds

For the past

Couple of years now

 

And it’s becoming exhausting

 

Making it moment to moment

Waiting for a clearing

But they say 

I am the sky

6. I Don't Need You

(Verse I)

 

When I look at your face

I long for your embrace

And I hope

 

That we’re doing the right thing

We’re not making a mistake

Keeping this space

 

And I hate being away from you

Oh how my soul aches

 

But all I want is to know

That you're okay

 

(Chorus)

 

Cause I really love you

But I have to let you go

 

Cause I realized what love means

And this is what I have to do

 

Cause I don’t need you

I don’t need you

I don’t need you

But you do

 

I don’t need you

God, I want you but

I don't need you

You do

 

(Verse II)

 

And you said you’d try

You don't want me to go

But I know

 

We’ll keep circling to the same place

Cause you can’t move straight 

Around the bend

 

But I’ve been wondering 

If I’m on your mind

As much as your on mine

 

And I know I can live without you

But I surely don't want to

 

(Chorus)

 

Cause I really love you

But I have to let you go

 

Cause I realized what love means

And this is what I have to do

 

Cause I don’t need you

I don’t need you

I don’t need you

But you do

 

I don’t need you

God, I want you but

I don't need you

You do

 

(Bridge)

 

And I believe

If it’s meant to be it will be

When we’re ready

 

The most important thing

Is to be happy in 

Our own skin

 

So don’t give up

Don't give up

Don’t give up on you

 

Don’t give up 

Don’t give up 

Don’t give up on you

 

Don’t give up 

Don’t give up

Never give up on you

 

Don’t give up 

Don't give up

I’ll never give up on you

 

Don’t give up

Don’t give up

Never give up on you
