Song meaning of Circles by Post Malone, and what it is about


The subject of Post Malone's song "Circles" realises that, despite their want to be together, they are unable to maintain a long-term relationship and that their partnership is instead mired in a cycle of breaking up and getting back together.


Every time they attempt to flee the failing relationship, they find themselves back in each other's arms. The narrator of "Circles" asks the subject to understand that their relationship cannot be healed since he or she realises that they cannot continue to do this to themselves.


It was both Post Malone's fourth number-one song and his first to do it on his own, peaking at the top of the US Billboard Hot 100 for three weeks in 2019. Along with reaching the top ten in 20 additional nations. It received the most airplay on American adult contemporary radio in 2020.


Additionally, it has certifications from nine times platinum in Canada, 10 times platinum in Australia, diamond in the US, and gold or higher in 11 other nations. At the 2021 Grammy Awards, it was also up for Record of the Year and Song of the Year.


Song lyrics of Circles by Post Malone


Oh, oh, oh-oh

Oh, oh, oh-oh

Oh, oh, oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh

 

We couldn't turn around till we were upside down

I'll be the bad guy now, but know I ain't too proud

I couldn't be there even when I try

You don't believe it, we do this every time

 

Seasons change and our love went cold

Feed the flame 'cause we can't let go

Run away, but we're running in circles

Run away, run away

I dare you to do something

I'm waiting on you again, so I don't take the blame

Run away, but we're running in circles

Run away, run away, run away

 

Let go, I got a feeling that it's time to let go

I said so, I knew that this was doomed from the get-go

You thought that it was special, special

But it was just the sex though, the sex though

And I still hear the echoes (The echoes)

I got a feeling that it's time to let it go, let it go

 

Seasons change and our love went cold

Feed the flame 'cause we can't let go

Run away, but we're running in circles

Run away, run away

I dare you to do something

I'm waiting on you again, so I don't take the blame

Run away, but we're running in circles

Run away, run away, run away

 

Maybe you don't understand what I'm going through

It's only me, what you got to lose?

Make up your mind, tell me, what are you gonna do?

It's only me, let it go

 

Seasons change and our love went cold

Feed the flame 'cause we can't let go

Run away, but we're running in circles

Run away, run away

I dare you to do something

I'm waiting on you again, so I don't take the blame

Run away, but we're running in circles

Run away, run away, run away
