"The Greatest Show On Earth" as written by Cindy Morgan, Denise Jones, Leigh Capillino, Julie Adkisson and Shelley Breen....
I don't wanna stay anymore
Yeah I'm getting out that's for sure
But how could I leave her alone
Honey won't you please come along
Let's get out of here
I got no credit on my telephone
I got no money in my jeans but come on

CHORUS

Let's go
Everyone says it's so cool
Who knows, could be us
At the greatest show on earth
I'm told
We're gonna get high and I want to
Let's go
Fall in love
It's the greatest show on earth
It's the greatest show on earth

So take what you need and nothing more
We've got a lot to explore
The fear of the world kept us in
Safe from the dirt and the sin
And yes I'm terrified
'Cause when you're out you know there's no return
But I love you and they're gonna learn

REPEAT CHORUS

I don't wanna be in this house no more
Gotta get out they're boring the hell out of me
Yeah
I don't wanna be in this house no more
I gotta get out of here before it kills me
It's gonna kill me
So come on

REPEAT CHORUS

Yeah
Yeah
Na na na na na na na
Na na na na na na na
Yeah!
Na na na na na na na
Na na na na na na na
Na na na na na na na
Na na na na na na na

    General CommentOn its simplest level, this song seems to be about losing yourself to love, giving yourself over to it, and to expanding your world beyond the humdrum you may be accustomed to. It's about surrendering complacency for adventure, and that adventure is love.

    On a deeper level, I wonder if there is perhaps an undertone of "coming out of the closet" on this one. The lyrics "And yes I'm terrified / 'Cause when you're out you know there's no return / But I love you and they're gonna learn" seems to carry that sentiment well.
