"Circus" as written by John Denver, Laurie Kuehn and Michael Johnson....
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
