I wanna join!

This looks like a fun little group I'd like to get to know.
Maybe some day Charlie and I can run away with a circus...

    I'm the kid who ran away with the circus
    Now I'm watering elephants
    But I sometimes lie awake in the sawdust
    Dreaming I'm in a suit of light

    Late at night in the empty big top
    I'm all alone on the high wire
    Look hes working without a net this time
    Hes a real death defier

    I'm the kid who always looked out the window
    Failing tests in geography
    But Ive seen things far beyond just the schoolyard
    Distant shores of exotic lands

    Therere the spires of the turkish empire
    Six months since we made landfall
    Riding low with the spice of india
    Through gibraltar, were rich men all

    I'm the kid who thought wed someday be lovers
    Always held out that time would tell
    Time was talking
    I guess I just wasn't listening
    No surprise, if you know me well

    And as were walking toward the train station
    Theres a whispering rainfall
    Across the boulevard, you slip your hand in mine
    In the distance the train calls

    I'm the kid who has this habit of dreaming
    Sometimes gets me in trouble too
    But the truth is
    I could no more stop dreaming
    Than I could make them all come true
    Than I could make them all come true

    do you like this one?
    just remembering when you were a bit of that golden haired you lots even if you want to run away to be in the circus
