Los Lobos – When The Circus Comes lyrics
Could have had a chance to get out of this mess
The time that you came and the day that you left
Could have had a chance
Could have had a chance

Never thought I could make it this far
With a pain in my soul and a hole in my heart
Never thought I could
Never thought I could

[Chorus:]
But when the lights are turning 'round
And wheels are rolling on the ground
That day I'll burn this whole place down
When the circus comes to town

Left your name carved on a tree
Scratched mine out right in front of me
Didn't mean that much
Didn't mean that much

[Chorus:]
But when the lights are turning 'round
And wheels are rolling on the ground
That day I'll burn this whole place down
When the circus comes to town

Scratch your name out on that tree
Chase your heart right out of me
Doesn't mean that much
Doesn't mean that much

[Chorus:]
But when the lights are turning 'round
And wheels are rolling on the ground
That day I'll burn this whole place down
When the circus comes to town
