"This Circle" as written by and Hayley Nichole/farro Williams....
Take this time to realize
That you always shut your eyes
In the midst of trial
And everything is always right
(And I think that it's time)
This battle must be won
(But you pushed it aside)
Pushed it aside
Pretend that it's gone

This circle never ends
And it's time you
Just face it, don't pretend
That it's over
This circle never ends
And it's time you
Just face it, don't pretend
That it's over

Take this time to realize
That you always force a smile
In the midst of trial
And everything is always right
(And I think that it's time)
This battle must be won
(But you pushed it aside)
Pushed it aside
Pretend that it's gone

This circle never ends
And it's time you
Just face it, don't pretend
That it's over
This circle never ends
And it's time you
Just face it, don't pretend
That it's over

And it never ends
It never ends
And it never ends
(And it never ends)
No, it never ends

This circle never ends
And it's time you
Just face it, don't pretend
That it's over
This circle never ends
And it's time you
Just face it, don't pretend
That It's over
It's over

    General Commentshe is telling someone that they are in a failing relationship. it just keeps getting bad after it gets good. it never heals itself. and when the bad times come, the person just ignores it and will not face the problem. she is saying that they just need to get out.

    General CommentI agree with lalalalisa.
    Only, I found this song on iTunes.. but, you have to buy the whole cd. Ah, damn.
    Great song, though.
    Paramore is brilliant.

    General Comment...Its about someone whose
    scared of something
    and its almost as if their forcing
    their selfs to do the
    thing their scared of
    "and it's time you
    just face it, don't pretend"
    Its saying being scared and
    pretending is not going
    to solve anything its never going away!!

    General CommentI think this song is about a group of people. (Most of Paramore's old songs aren't about relationships, by the way) and then they go through a troubled period, and one or more of the people are just trying to leave, and the song is telling them that it's just not that simple, and they have to deal with it.

    General CommentI was just listening to my Pandora radio station, and all of a sudden, this song came on, and I was like, "Hey... that's Hayley!" And so I looked at what song it was, and was very surprised that my station was playing me a Paramore song that I'd never heard of before!

    It says it's on the Vans Warped Tour 2007 Tour Compilation album, but it calls it "The Circle".

    Awesome song, though... can't believe I'd never heard of it.

    "Take this time to realize that you always shut your eyes in the midst of trial; and everything is always right."
    Wow, reminds me kinda of myself...
