"Circles" as written by and Jonathon Walden Fitzgerald....
Breathe me in my love
and hold me in tight
Wandering, not lost
alone in the
night

The fear's begun to surface
So breathe me in my love
and hold me in
tight

You had me going for a minute there
I thought I heard you coming up
the stairs
There comes a time you need to let me know
We'll fight your demons
when they start to show
I would never mind a sudden change
Sometimes it gets
us on our better days
You're just a victim of the circumstance

Breathe in
as you spin in circles
So breathe me in my love
In circles

What we take
hold of
is up to us now
So try and hold your head
up above ground

You had
me going for a minute there
A subtle feeling lingered in the air
There comes
a time you need to let me know
We'll fight your demons when they start to
show
I would never mind a sudden change
Sometimes it gets us on our better
days
You're just a victim of the circumstance

Breathe in as you spin in
circles
So breathe me in my love
In circles

    My Interpretationto me, this song is about a relationship and him being fooled by a lover. "you had me going for a minute there, a subtle feeling lingered in the air" believing everything was alright but in the back of his mind knowing something was wrong. in the end though he wants to make everything better and forgive her, believing everyone makes mistakes "sometimes it gets us on our better days, you're just a victim of the circumstance." basically being hurt but wanting to fix things together "we'll fight your demons when they start to show."


    ...thats just my biased opinion about it.

    My Opinionthis song is simply gorgeous. the music and lyrics progress and create this emotion that i literally cannot explain. lol i just feel evey aspect of this song, and thats when im Sober!

    anywhoo i take it as two people maybe lovers, or family whom care for eachother and one of them wanting to save and make the other the better person they know that they could be.
    its like the person who wants to help desperatly wants the other to see just how much they love them and want the best for them even if it means that they will go round in "Circles" its like a hope that they wont always end up just go round and round.

    toward the end when the song goes a little haywire and noisy it makes sense with what he is feeling. like the frustration of the going round in Circles and all the emotions you go through for another lost beautiful Soul.....

    General CommentCycles of relationships or something. I dunno. ATAL seems either deep or realistic on the topic of love in relationships. It doesn't really make sense.

    What we take
    hold of
    is up to us now
    So try and hold your head
    up above ground

    Really nice. Just keep on it.
