Lyrics: Bertie


You taught me to fly and to swoop to your arms;

And though I soared high I came to no harm;


You sawed me in half and you pulled me apart

And though I really laughed, you had broken my heart,


You stood me quite still and you threw straight your knives

And though you didn’t kill, you used eight of my lives,


You rattled my cage and you cracked your whip


And though I really raged, I only bit my lip.


Chorus x 2


Our dream is

A circus

Run away

Live for the day


Our life’s

A circus

Ups and downs


round and round


You set up a hoop, and I jumped through the fire,

And though you were cool, you lit up my desire


You stretched a high wire, and you made me walk the walk,

And though said you were a flyer, It was only ticks and talk.


Chorus x 2


Our dream is

A circus

Run away


Live for the day


Our life is

A circus

Ups and downs

round and round


Bridge—


We made a pact

We’re a double act

A high wire flier


with a belly full of fire


A big attraction

with plenty of action

A spectacular show

With no net below


[Guitar Solo]


Our dream

is a a circus

Run away,


live for the day


Our life,

is a circus

ups and downs

round and round


Our dream

is a a circus

Run away,

live for the day



Our life,

is a circus

ups and downs

round and round


Our way is a circus

Thrills and spills,

looks that kill


Our love

is a circus


yes we fight, but it’s right on the night


Our way is a circus

Thrills and spills,

looks that kill


Our love a is

A circus

yes we fight

But it’s alright on the night
