Lyrics: In Circles

In Circles by Benjamin Orr (written by Benjamin Orr and Diane Grey Page ©1983)

 

Give me one good reason, tell me how you feel

Well is it just a teaser, or is it all too real?

You slip and I start thinking, not a lot to say

Well show me something different, new along the way

 

Just spinning me in circles, never get the fix I need

Oh oh, down around in circles, it’s always you and never me

 

First you tell me one thing, then you tell me two

If someone here is crazy, I base the bet on you

 

Just spinning me in circles, never get the fix I need

Ho ho, down around in circles, it’s always you and never me no, no

 

Why do you refuse (refuse) to play it by the rules all the time?

You know (you know) it really drives me wild.

 

You slip and I start thinking, not a lot to say

Well show me something different, new along the way

 

Just spinning me in circles, never get the fix I need

Ho ho, down around in circles, it’s always you and never me, no, no

 

Why do you refuse (you choose) to play it by the rules all the time?

You know (you know) it really drives me wild.

 

Give me one good reason, tell me how you feel

Well is it just a teaser, or is it all too real?

 

Just spinning me in circles, never get the fix I need

Ho ho, down around in circles, it’s always you and never me, yeah yeah

 

How you love me like crazy and you could never see

And you love me like crazy

 

How you love me like crazy and you could never see

And I want you like crazy, only you talk to me

 

And you love me like crazy, but you could never see

Always you can’t be beat, yeah

 

And I want you like crazy and you could never see it

Talk to me, no no no

 

And you love me like crazy and you could never see

But you could never see it

  1. Hey there, I just wanted to offer an alternate word in one of the lyrics for this song. Instead of “base the bet”, it might be “place the bet”. When you bet, you place the bet. Just a little something you hear a lot when you live around a huge racetrack like Churchill Downs 😉

    Also, I had occasion recently to speak to Diane Grey Page, and she cleared up a little mystery I had regarding lyrics at the end…some people hear “a little bit crazy”, you have “how you love me like crazy”, and I’ve always sworn it was “I love you like crazy”. She confirmed that it is indeed “I love you like crazy”. Just thought you might find that interesting, as she is the cowriter of the song. Neat!

    1. Very cool! Thank you! Yes, I know about the phrase ”place the bet’ and I definitely think that is what it should be, but when I listen it sounds like he’s actually saying ‘base the bet’. Must just be my ears!
