Dancing In Circles (Love and Theft)

Well I don't understand why we Do what we do to each other According to His word we're All born sisters and brothers But we lie and we steal Fight and we kill Even though we know the way Why do we go dancing in circles When we know it never ends We come so close to loving each other And then, we go dancing in circles again All through the ages we Try to share this world together Turning the pages, pretending We'll live here forever But we'll have to face Our maker someday And reap what we've sown all the way Why do we go dancing in circles When we know it never ends We come so close to loving each other And then, we go dancing in circles again And we know how so Why can't we just get it right? And I pray someday We'll overcome all the damage we've done And we'll fight Why do we go dancing in circles When we know it never ends We come so close to loving each other And then, we go dancing in circles again
