Being in centre circle

is a hard place to stay

You have to make sure

you don’t get in your way

Give them what they need

is that not what you say

So they’ll want you back

to play another day

The fans build you up

the critics run you down

Say they want your feet

to remain on the ground

If you’re not centre circle

then why’d they come around

Guess there must be something

they like about your sound

I know you love the fans

pleasing them’s the goal

They energize your life

when you embrace the role

But inside your heart

is what really makes you whole

All those precious secrets

that no one ever stole

Give them what they want

to get onboard the bus

Give them what they need

can only be a plus

Block out the cynics

without a trace of fuss

The only bad news

is the stuff about us


When you’re centre circle

doubters stand aside

You are the fanfare

behind which they hide

You keep the show going

they’re along for the ride

And only crack a smile

because of their pride


Sure you love the fans

pleasing them’s the goal

They energize your life

when you embrace the role

But inside your heart

is what really makes you whole

All those precious secrets

that no one ever stole


We could follow the money

to the land of honey

Where the sounds are cool

and the days are sunny


We could rent a suite

where the big wheels meet

Get good measure

of the beat on the street


We could let the stars align

sail high on red wine

Relax on a yacht

where the weather is fine


But centre circle waits

all across the States

And fans stand in line

for concert ticket dates


Being in centre circle

is a hard place to stay

You have to make sure

you don’t get in your way

Give them what they need

is that not what you say

So they’ll want you back

to play another day


Yes you love the fans

pleasing them’s the goal

They energize your life

when you embrace the role

But inside your heart

is what really makes you whole

All those precious secrets

that no one ever stole

She's centre circle

it makes her feel good

Only thing she's known

since her childhood
