Circles: inside the lyrics and their meaning

Circles is a song about holding up in the challenging moments of life through music and together with people who care about us. It’s a sad pop ballad with a motivating message to never give up in front of difficult times.

The song’s beginning describes the feeling of a confused and insecure person: they are sad and can’t find the right help to feel better.

Where am I going?
What are you watching for?
When I crying, I go to the skies closer
No one can see my tears

The chorus has a real motivating message to all sad people in the world: let’s all use music to gather energy. We are not alone; most importantly, life has always had ups and downs. Nothing lasts forever, and like the hands on a clock, things sometimes go upside down and return to their original place. The circles in the title are precisely the recurrent movements that affect our lives, a symbol of the dynamic way life goes.

Let’s sing together
To cover the sadness with the powerful song
It’s gonna be okay, like the hands on the clock
They’ll go in circles back to their places

The song contains poetic lines that describe melancholy through images. This way, people could relate to the feelings depicted by Seventeen and be encouraged to go on, trusting their destiny. We are strong, music is always here for us, and together with the right people, we can overcome every challenging moment.

The blowing wind is lonely
Even on a summer day with a cold nose
The season that passes by a year
As if nothing

That’s the real meaning of the lyrics inside Circles: life is not always easy, but every dark moment is followed by a new joy. We only need to trust our destiny and hold up, with the help of songs like this and people holding our hands.

The English translation of the lyrics are provided by Genius.

Where am I going?
What are you watching for?
When I crying, I go to the skies closer
No one can see my tears

So many days, I’m voiceless
I’m breathing
With the voice of our hearts, we passed to each other
Be brave for this day

Let’s sing together
To cover the sadness with the powerful song
It’s gonna be okay, like the hands on the clock
They’ll go in circles back to their places

The blowing wind is lonely
Even on a summer day with a cold nose
The season that passes by a year
As if nothing

So many days, I’m voiceless
I’m breathing
With a song, we handed to each other
Be brave for that day

Let’s sing together
To cover the sadness with the powerful song
It’s gonna be okay, like the hands on the clock
They’ll go in circles back to their places

Remember, we are together always
I won’t let go of your hand
