This Circle

From the album Moments of Insanity

Why do we keep makin’ the same mistakes
Say those icy words ’cause we’ve gotta save face
Then we dig in for the storm we know’s comin’
We’ve been here before like a hundred times
Déjà vu’s no stranger to our storyline
But we dig in, ’til we’re feelin’ like runnin’

Don’t know if I’ll ever understand
How a man can hurt a woman and a woman wound a man
The way we do

You and me, we go ’round and ’round
Again and again, between makeups and breakdowns
First we’re flyin’ high, then we’re down so low
I can’t wait to hold you, or I wish that you would go
But you don’t wanna hurt me, I don’t wanna hurt you
We just keep goin’ ’round this circle

Girl, I realize you’ve got me hypnotized
You’re foolin’ with my feelin’s, messin’ with my mind
And I love it, just as much as I hate it
You know it drives me crazy goin’ ’round like this
From misery to ecstasy with just one kiss
But I love it, even if I can’t take it

Heaven, help us know what we should do
Oh, we drive each other crazy, but we have so much to lose
Yes, we do

You and me, we go ’round and ’round
Again and again, between makeups and breakdowns
First we’re flyin’ high, then we’re down so low
I can’t wait to hold you, or I wish that you would go
But you don’t wanna hurt me, I don’t wanna hurt you
We just keep goin’ ’round this circle

Oh, we keep goin’ round this circle
Oh, we keep goin’ round this circle
