"Circles" as written by Christopher L. Hobbs, Chad Laroy Jensen, Brian Justin Smith, Casey Allen Walker and Zachary David Maloy....
This chapter is over
He's not coming home
Her heart in her throat
As she falls to the floor

She shuns every memory
Every letter and call
Just to get through each second
She is slowly shutting off

Where's her sweet revenge?
Who will she blame?
Where's her freedom now?
How can she reclaim it?

He wipes the sweat from her face
As she moans in pain
A tiny and helpless life
Comes as if to say

Here's your sweetest gift
Take this moment
It's true and beautiful
In return for all your pain

Eyes wide, heart warm
She sees it in her face
If you watch the way the world gives back
In circles

    General CommentNOTE: I know these lyrics are incomplete. I can't find them posted anywhere, so I did this all by ear, and anyone who listens to Natalie knows how hard it is to make out her words sometimes. I left any parts I couldn't make out blank, so that's why some lines may not make sense.


    Natalie's voice is so hauntingly beautiful. This song is about the wife of a soldier at war. In the first stanza, she has just found out about his death. In the second stanza, it's describing how she reacts to it. She tries to shun all the memories out of her mind to stay strong, but she's failing fast.

    Then the third, fourth, and fifth stanzas are about her giving birth to their child that she was pregnant with. The baby looks like her husband did. It's her sweetest gift, and it's a reminder to her that the world always gives back to you, even after insurmountable pain.

    General CommentThis chapter is over
    He’s not coming home
    Her heart in her throat
    She falls to the floor

    She shuns every memory
    Every letter and call
    Just to get through each second
    She is slowly shutting off

    Where is her sweet revenge
    Who will she blame
    Where is her freedom now
    How can she reclaim it

    He wipes the sweat from her face
    As she moans in pain
    A tiny and helpless life
    Comes as if to say

    Here is your sweetest gift
    Take this moment it is safe
    Its true pure and beautiful
    In return for all of your pain

    Eyes wide and heart warm
    She sees him in her face
    If you watch the way the world gives back
    In circles you will trace



    "I was a little shook up by the song called Circles. I get that way whenever I feel the sadness of a loss coming about. It can be the loss of love or life or happiness; doesn’t matter. The song blatantly reminds you that just when you think life is going in the right direction it twains into directions you never anticipated. Natalie's lilting voice is well accompanied by a bluesy piano. Life does after all move in circles."

    General CommentI totally agree with BritanySpears Sucks. Though i didn't think "A Tiny helpless life" was a baby. I didn't think that through, i thought maybe she was the tiny helpless life. or something. But now this makes sense.
    thanks!
