Circus
John Denver

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 and 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 and 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 and 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 and going nowhere
