 Time will tell if I'll take the homeward track
|A/G...         A/F# A/G|A    A/G  A    |A/G               |A/G 
 Dizziness will make my  feet walk back, walk right back to you

|Bm                |Bm/F#            
 Everything I do, I think of you
  |Bm                 |              |        
No matter how I try, I can't get by
     |A  A/G A|A/G...     A/F# A/G|A  A/G A  A/G|A/G...     A/F# A/G|
These circles, leading me back to  you

Round and around and around and around and around and 
Around and around and around and around

Round and round like a fool I go
Down and down in the pool I go
Draggin' me down

Everything I do, I think of you
No matter how I try, I can't get by
Circles, leading me back to you

|Bm   C#m D    |E     F#m  D  |E      |
 Just one thing could kill the pain of losin' you

      |Bm         C#m   D       |E             F#m  D |E  
But it gets me so dizzy that I'm walkin' right back again
|             |
 Back to you
