"Circles" as written by Mariah Carey and James Quenton Wright....
Ever since you left me
I've been trying to hide the pain
Painting on a smile with lipstick
Putting on a big charade
So difficult to keep pretending
It's getting harder everyday
It's plain to see I'm cold and heartsick
Since you turned and walked away
I just keep going round and round
And round in circles
Keep on tumbling down

Oh boy my world has changed
And I don't think I can make it without out
Nothing's the same
You got me running around in circles over you
(Running around in circles over you)

Saturday I saw you
Holding hands with someone new
Somehow I kept my composure
Just like everything was cool
But inside I kept repeating
Don't you let them see you cry
So I casually turned my head
As the tears rolled down my eyes
I just keep going round and round
And round in circles
Keep on tumbling down

Oh boy my world has changed
And I don't think I can make it without out
Nothing's the same
You got me running around in circles over you
(Running around in circles over you)

Everything is you
How can I pull through
My heart is consumed I'm so confused
Still caught up in you...love can be so cruel
Baby don't know how to turn you loose

Oh boy my world has changed
And I don't think I can make it without you
No, nothing's the same
You got me running around
And running around
And running around
Nothing's the same
Baby baby cause you
Got me running around
In circles over you
(Running around in circles over you)

    General CommentAnother one that no1 has commented on?? hello she is amazing!! this song is my favorite on her Emancipation cd. It is so powerful, & a perfect rainy day song. I think everyone can relate to this song, about just wanting to get over someone, but you cant, even when there with someone else.

    General CommentAnother honest and breathtaking song that touches the same topic: not being able to let go of the love of your life so far...finding hard to think of live without him forever, having always that door open for his comeback, even when it's so clear he's with somebody else and only comes to you when he needs it...
    I can relate to it fully, I'm still caught up in someone after 5 years of coming and going in circles...ending up more and more bruised :(
