Could have had a chance

And wheels are rolling on the ground
That day I'll burn this whole place down
When the circus comes to town

You left your name carved on a tree
You scratched mine out right in front of me
Didn't mean that much

But when the lights are turning 'round
And wheels are rolling on the ground
The day I'll burn this whole place down
When the circus comes to town

Scratch your name out on that tree
I'll chase your heart right out of me
Doesn't mean that much
Doesn't mean that much

'Cause when the lights are turning 'round
And wheels are rolling on the ground
The day I'll burn this whole place down
When the circus comes to town
When the circus comes
