If I look like home to you
Don't try to understand it girl
It hasn't come to this

Heavy are the clouds
Or what it's all about
And you talk so very loud
Looking everywhere and going nowhere
Well I think I'll try the circus
It's time to make mistakes again
It's time and time and time again
It's time to gather forces

There's nothing left to share
To be some other where
I don't think I can spare
Looking everywhere and going nowhere
'Cause I tell you when you hurt me
I inform you that I'm lonely
So if I lie to you and smile a thought
It's just the circus and I'm singing I'm never really near
If I look like home to you
Don't try to understand it girl
It hasn't come to this

Looking anywhere and going nowhere
