Inquisitive and thoughtful,
She was the challenge he'd been waiting for;
A reminder that creativity runs deep like secrets.
Dark eyed dreamers; they were a dangerous pair,
Q next to U scribbled out on paper...
They stop
They go
They're done.

Go back to the place we knew before
Retrace our steps to the basement door,
I'll ask you if the rain still makes you smile,
Like so much time that we spent in the fall
It put color in our cheeks while the air turned cold,
Preceding what became our bitter end.

Round in circles - lets start over,
Round in circles - lets start over.

Unanswered questions would be the only thing to stop them now...
He was the poet while she was the muse,
But she had a pen that she knew how to use,
With a touch of redemption, a hint of elation;
A recipe for disaster.

Go back to the place we knew before
Retrace our steps to the basement door,
I'll ask you if the rain still makes you smile,
Like so much time that we spent in the fall
It put color in our cheeks while the air turned cold,
Preceding what became our bitter end.

Let this be a lesson to us all...

Round in circles - lets start over,
Round in circles - lets start over
Round in circles, round in circles
Round in circles, round in circles.

    The meaning that i get from this song or the story behind it at least, is a couple that is struggling sometimes because they are so much alike but they have a love that is so strong nothing can stop them. They are the perfectly imperfect two!

    To me it's about a guy and a girl in an on and off relationship and they keep going back to where they started like going round in circles as the song says

    I think that the song is about when you go into a relationship and it self destructs without you knowing. And then it happens again and again again. And eventually you realize your going round in circles

    For me.. This song is for them the band(all time low). If you watch the "straight to dvd" outtakes. You will get it if you watch the dvd. :)

    This song is looking back on that one relationship that everybody loves the idea of, but can never make happen. We can try as many times as we want, do all the little cute things to try and make it work, but in the end the cycle still stops where we don't want it to...
