"Full Circle" as written by Taylor Rhodes and Steven Tyler....
Yeah

If I could change the world
Like a fairy tale
I would drink the love
From your holy grail

I would start with love
Tell ol' beelzebub
To get outta town
'Cause you just lost your job

How did we get so affected
'Cause I think
Love is love reflected

Time
Don't let it slip away
Raise yo' drinkin' glass
Here's to yesterday
In time
We're all gonna trip away
Don't piss heaven off
We got hell to pay
Come full circle

And if
There's a spell on you that
I could take away
I would do the deed
Yeah, and by the way
Here's to heaven knows
As the circle goes
It ain't right
I'm uptight
Yeah, get on my toes

I used to think that every little thing I did was crazy
But now I think the karma cops are comin' after you

Time
Don't let it slip away
Raise yo' drinkin' glass
Here's to yesterday
In time
We're all gonna trip away
Don't piss heaven off
We got hell to pay
Come full circle

Every time you get yourself caught up
Inside of someone else's crazy dream
Own it, yeah, that's a mistake
Everybody's gotta lot o' nada killing
Them instead of killing me

Time
Don't let it slip away
Raise yo' drinkin' glass
Here's to yesterday
In time
We're all gonna trip away
Don't piss heaven off
We got hell to pay
Come full circle

Circle, circle

    General CommentI really like this song. To me it means that you should do the things you want to do while you're alive to do it because there will come a day when you will look back on it. You shouldn't have any regrets about what you did in your lifetime. It's just one of those songs that really means something if you take the time to think about it.

    General Commenttitania - yes, yes it is. really love this song, i can't believe it didn't do better, such a universal meaning. i think it's actually one of the few very very well written aerosmith songs. not that the rest are rubbish, there are just a few that stand out :)

    General CommentTo me, this song means reflection, on life and love. On love...I personally am reminded of this song when looking at my last "failed" relationship, which ended up being a lovers turned friends kind of deal. About how if I could, I would have "changed the world, like a fairy tale" to make our love work out. "If there's a spell on you that I could take away" once again, stating how I would have done whatever to correct it.
    "I used to think that every little thing I did was crazy
    But now I think the Karma cops are comin' after you" Pretty much also reminiscent of my relationship, because my parter was in so many ways everything I wanted to be as a person in life, but to such a far greater extent that he actually was doing himself--and most everyone around him--more harm than good. "Every time you get yourself caught up inside of someone else's crazy dream, own it, yeah, that's a mistake " It makes me think of how I was pretty much caught up inside of my partner's "crazy dreams" of life and how it should be, but in the end, it wasn't going to work for us, and I have no one to blame for that mistake but me.
    This also makes me reflect on life:
    "Time, don't let it slip away
    Raise your drinking glass
    Here's to yesterday,
    In time, we're all going to trip away
    Don't piss heaven off
    We've got hell to pay"
    Pretty much, in the end, what's done is done, the choices you made are settled, mistakes you've made, you'd have better owned up to. It
    s not worth looking back in anger over, so you'd have better made peace with it. You'd better live your life while you can, because it all ends the same, regardless. You will eventually "come full circle".

    I wish more people knew this song so I could drink with my friends and play this song and have us all sing along...
    That's just how much it means to me.

    General CommentI'm guessing 'Love is love reflected' means love is 'evol', which sounds like 'evil'.
