“Welcome back to the circus.
I’ve got you bending over
backwards and jumping threw hoops.
I’ve got you putting on a show in a dimly lit room. “
It’s crazy that I still walk this tight rope for you.
It’s crazy that I keep getting drawn back to this center stage.
Aren’t you sick of seeing the same old show?
Aren’t you tired of the same old tricks?
Makeup and a fancy new costume can’t cover these scars,
a fake smile plastered across my face.
How can you be so easily fooled?
How can I be so easily fooled?
This schedule we are on, you think would have changed in two years.
Three weeks on three weeks off.
This is bad business for everyone.
I thought you would have found a new main attraction by now.
“It’s not you that holds me back, it’s I haven’t found anyone good enough.”
Glad you want to keep coming to the same old show to pass the time.
Really it’s quite an honor…
O you can sense the sarcasm in my voice?
I am just as
trapped as you are. I am just as exhausted with this circus as you.
Every time I get a one way ticket away from this story
I slowly get sucked back in.
I was reborn when I entered this show
and no amount of running is ever going to
tame the restlessness in my blood.
So I am back here walking this tight rope for you, just waiting on my next fall.
