"Circles" as written by Mariah Carey and James Quenton Wright....
Star bright, so stunning and brilliant
The circle keeps spinning around me
My love, my god, what have I done to you
I've lost my one in a million

I go insane a thousand times
My circle of friends is shrinking down
I get so far down I can only hope
I jump through the way, it gets lonely now

It keeps spinning around me
It keeps spinning around me
It keeps spinning around me

For Tuesday I walk to the village
And I know that my vote doesn't count any more
I got my opinions about you
I keep them inside of the ballet box
I stuff all my thoughts and my feelings down
I get so far down I got too far gone
I've lost my one in a million
Disappears my ballet is gone

(Reaching out)
Taking my hand
Oh you make me understand that life is too short now
(Reaching out)
And we don't have the time that we had
When we were younger

My love, my god, I am sorry
For everything we've been through
When I cry, I see millions of circles
And the sky so blue

No body deserves to be lonely
No one should be left alone
Because time doesn't wait it will probably accelerate
As the days and the months and the years go by

When I cry, I see millions of circles
When I cry, I see millions of circles now

My love, my god, I am sorry
For everything we've been through
When I cry, I see millions of circles
And the sky so blue

    General CommentAgreed. I heard this song for a Fox Promo in the beginning of January. The context is definitely my style.

    General CommentLike hardcor_toonz said, it's about regret at its most broad...he's looking at the current state of the world, the music industry, and his relationships (with lovers and God) and wondering what the hell happened.

    Is there anything worse than watching the weeks and months and years pass by, looking back weighed down by regret? Bob Mould would say no in this amazing song.
