​Circus

This song is by Mary Travers and appears on the album Mary (1971).

If I look like home to you
And if I am your sign
Don't try to understand it guy
When I draw the line
It hasn't come to this
That you can say I waste my time

Looking everywhere and going nowhere

Oh the skies they look so lazy now
And heavy are the clouds
There's nothing here that I could learn
What it's all about
You haven't said a thing to me
And you talk so very loud

Looking everywhere, going nowhere

So I think I'll try the circus
Or go back to Mexico
It's time to make mistakes again
It's time to change the show
It's time and time and time again
To find another way
It's time to gather forces
And get out of yesterday

Because I've lost what I was looking for
There's nothing left to share
I need to take myself away
To be some other where
To face a life, a minute more
I don't think I can spare

Looking everywhere, going nowhere

So I tell you when you hurt me
'Cause you just don't seem to know
And I inform you when I'm lonely
And you still don't think I'll go
So if I lie to you and smile a thought
It's only half way here
It's just a circus and I'm singing
And I'm never really near

If I look like home to you
And if I am your sign
Don't try to understand it guy
When I draw the line
It hasn't come to this
That you can say I waste my time

Looking everywhere
Looking everywhere
Looking anywhere
Going nowhere
