We thought we were the greatest show on earth
Two kids running around kicking up dirt
Falling, flying, big top loving in a little old town
When you're high-wire walking, don't you dare look down
And tease the lions

Oh, you toss love around like a juggling act
Oh, you put your heart in a cannon and you didn't look back
Just when I thought I had heaven one day
Just like that heaven was packed and gone away
All you left was a field of dust, you runaway circus

You talked me into a ticket for two,
Played with my heart for a grandstand view
But the star attraction was smoke and magic

Oh, you toss love around like a juggling act
Oh, you put your heart in a cannon and you didn't look back
Just when I thought I had heaven one day
Just like that heaven was packed and gone away
All you left was a field of dust, you runaway circus

You runaway circus

Oh
Oh

Oh, you toss love around like a juggling act
Oh, you put your heart in a cannon and you didn't look back
Just when I thought I had heaven one day
Just like that heaven was packed and gone away
All you left was a field of dust, you runaway circus

You runaway circus
You runaway circus
