Adams, Oleta - Circle Of One Lyrics




I was looking the wrong way
When you came into my life
Like a story returned everyday
And my heart gave a warning
And it stopped for a moment
And I thought I would never get well

But the poison and passion and action of love
Running away with me huh
The fighting and hiding your hating and love
Until you could set me free

I was caught in the middle of a rock and a hard place and
I needed a soft place to fall
Then you showed me the reason to rely on my feelings
I had nothing to fear at all

I'll never go back to that circle of one
That circle of loneliness yeah
I'll never go back to that circle of one
One!

I was looking for someway
To escape to a new life
Far away from this merry go round

Then you set us in motion
With love and devotion
And I hope that we never come down

I'll never go back to that circle of one
That circle of loneliness yeah

I'll never go back to that circle of one
That circle of empty-emptiness baby
I'll never go back to that circle of one
Circle of
Circle of
Circle of
One!

The simple addition of a love in my life
The failing of a endless void
It came out of nowhere and
Stucky like a knife
It was something to fear in your heart

Never never go back no
Never never go back no
Hah!
Never never go back no
Never never go back no

I'll never go back to that circle of one
That circle of loneliness yeah
I'll never go back to that circle of one
That circle of empty-emptiness baby
I'll never go back to that circle of one
Never never go back no
Never never go back no
I'll never go back to that circle of one
Circle of
Circle of
Circle of
One!

  6. G_Guy001

    I'm reminded of Whitney's "I'm Your Baby Tonight"

  7. William MacLellan

    Soulful, meaningful, beautifully pleasing voice...  this album was so well done; good vocals, production and material.  Oleta possesses TRUE talent.

  8. FELICIA HOLLINS

    I played this song so much back in the day my kids got sick of it, they said circle of one I wish she would find a square. After all this time it still sounds goods and brings back memories

  9. Antionette Robinson

    this is music

  10. Bambang Sudanto

    brilliant black female artist so far...one of a kind

  11. SuperHurricane75

    great song!

  12. bladejms

    Oleta Adams performed a beautiful song titled "Peace" in a Christmas Concert but the video was removed from You Tube and I really wish I could find it again..........

  13. Tim W

    What a voice...

  14. Kevin Citron

    Roland Orzabal, obviously produced this song. Good song, along with "get here".
    Those two, should have stayed together. "Get Here" lyrics, kinda sound like she was in Hood River, OR. When she was talking to Roland, to, "Get Here"

  15. Ken Johnson

    one of 3 of my favorite Oleta Adams songs. Awesome!

  16. spectre56j

    Back in 1990 during Desert Storm I played this to death !! Was going thru changes with the now ex!

  17. Inga Hicks

    THE. JAM!!!

  18. Angela Johnson

    i love this song

  19. Angel Rose

    Oleta!  The divine Miss Adams. This is music and singing.  She is one of God's princesses!

  20. cirruslogic

    A song well composed and sung. Love the arrangement, drums, bass guitars, synthetiser, background vocals. They don't make music like this anymore.

  21. Kim Jones

    It is rarely that I can truly say here is a voice can sing most of anything from such a wide gamut of significant repertoire of music. I proclaim Oleta Adams is such an artist. Welcome to my ears; I am listening, for real.

  22. Vijaya Krsna Dasa

    The voice of Oleta is all you need to understand that victory is the only choice in life. Love youtube, Vijaya

  23. Erin Walter

    Love it!

  24. Erick peralta

    a long time ago that i heard this song maybe 13 years, i love it

  25. knmlover

    SLEEPING WITH THE ENEMY brought me here

  26. Duchess Williams

    Oleta Adams is totally underrated & under-celebrated just like Vesta Williams .. these ladies are "Power-House" performers..when you can see without music you are truly gifted !!

  27. Adrian DeVore

    I had the cassette of "Circle of One" and wore it out back in the '90s! Listening to her is still amazing after 20+ years. :-)

    Todd Christenson

    I did the same thing. Thankfully there's Youtube and Vevo!

    Anthony Barlow

    Adrian DeVore

    Me too!

  28. gino farina

    first saw here withTeras for Fears and was blown away with her voice

  29. MrShunyata

    Oleta is further proof that the majority of humans are physically and emotionally tone-deaf to truly miraculous music. I am not judging anyone -- this phenomenon is not a fault -- just a fact. This woman with her voice and soulfulness is a blessing from God -- yet billions of people don't know her work or aren't moved by it...that is just so sad.

  30. youlanda laShore-Boyd

    Oleta Adams where are you need your voice in this industry today..

  31. PrincessofPower84

    My favorite song of hers. It brings back great memories of first grade and my Mom used to play music on the weekends. :)

  32. kemetstry

    I wonder why she stopped recording stuff like this?

  33. Dustin Allen

    wtf is this the Germs cover?? how the fuck did i get here, haha.

  34. Ostone

    this is soo great music,what type is that music i am musician but this not come in pop,rock,and everything else its oleta way of music like many artist you say its rock its that but no its their music..omg what a awesome song first time hear it...oleta rocks

  35. vivandav67

    she's always been massively underrated.....

  36. Orbot

    @adelgado75 AMEN! Music like this is a gem! The music industry is overrun with limitedly talented hacks today! The only reason why these silly tweens go crazy for ppl like Justin Beiber is because they unfortunately haven't lived long enough to experience AND appreciate GOOD music!

    8t8 Zee

    Orbot good call x

  37. adelgado75

    It's a shame that the music business is all about money and fame. Great singers like this and others have fallen by the wayside.

  38. Evren Acar

    Jacob Lusk reminds me of her.... anyone else?

  39. ElegantPaws01

    Still fantastic!

  40. ralfir zo

  46. LeslyeJoyAllen - JazzMaestra

  47. Francis Carmon

    @Jal8919536 Yes wasn't it cool, the way they walked up, classic

  48. kemetstry

    I recently returned from Germany and visited a office supply store where this song was playing. I didn't recognize the song immediately, but when I did, I realized that I hadn't heard it in years. I also realized that it was the great Oleta Adams and immediately downloaded it!
