A girl so lovely 
She never knew my adoration and desire
Circumstance and shyness did deny me more
My young heart

Too many thoughts in mind
undoubtedly time goes by
Victim of circumstance, I cry
Why did I let this happen?

A jungle of circumstance…
preying on the silence

Just Jump
Under what kind of circumstance,
Are you willing to take such a chance?
You just have to leap,
If the plan is to reap,
Results are not shown in advance.

it was you
it wasn't the moon
that got to me that night
it wasn't dancing close
or purely circumstance
it was much more than that
it was all of those things
and much, much more
it was you...

Circumstance comes with chalk
Scribbles message so glorious
On each baby’s back
In the maternity ward
The homeless shadow pens;
‘Born to be unborn
That this world
May have space’

Flawless finish
She does not dare step down from her chair
She does not dare to take such a chance, a beautiful victim of circumstance
She dreams the day she has the chance to take a stance
Rise up and dance

You win.
Take circumstance
and all it's hopscotch words
and fling them far beyond me now
for you have taken every how and why
and blown my dandelion air
without rhyme or season
or consequence.
You win....

fate, chance, circumstance
Longing looks or
furtive glances,
shuffling steps
or pony prances

Sheathing swords
and crossing lances
choices, actions
partners, dances

Living, loving
true romances,
fate and chance
or circumstances...
