"Circus" as written by and Gerry/britten Deveaux....
One day while I was searching
For what I'll never find
She walked into my story
Said she could change my mind

This is the final offer
She said to make it quick
Don't lose out on this wonder
So I had to place my bet

Welcome to the picture show
Watching your life
Never know which way to go
It might not be right
So you better be strong

What kind of circus is this ?
What kind of fools are we ?
When is the final curtain ?
What can I do to set me free ?

Welcome to the real world
You better be strong
Never know which way to go
It might end up wrong
So you better be strong

Too many games we have to play
They always change the rules
You and me just trying to get along
What can I do ?
Got to be strong

She walked into my daydream
She told me how it had to be

Welcome to the picture show
Watching your life
Never know which way to go
It might not be right
Yeah yeah

Welcome to the real world
You got to be strong
Never know which way to go
It might end up wrong
Yeah yeah

Welcome to the picture show
It might end up wrong
So you better be strong
You got to be strong
You better be strong.

    General CommentIt's probably talking about his break-up with Lisa Bonet. This is my #1 Kravitz song

    General CommentNice guess buddha. I think about the same, even when Lenny Kravitz announced in an interview that Circus is in his personal review the darkest song he ever did. He said that he connects this time about the dark sides of Rock n Roll and the death of his mother which was at the time Circus was released. All in all very rough and dark LP, having great songs on it.
