Song of the Day, April 8: The Circle Is Small by Gordon Lightfoot

Today’s song is The Circle Is Small (I Can See It In Your Eyes) by Gordon Lightfoot. Taken from his 1978 album Endless Wire, it’s a song of loss and betrayal.

It’s alright for some, but not alright to be
Where the one that I’m lovin’ can’t be found
The city where we live might be quite large
But the circle is small
Why not tell us all, and then all of us will know

I can see it in your eyes and feel it in the way you kiss my lips
I can hear it in your voice whenever we are talking like this
I can see what you believe in when his name is mentioned and I die
I can watch the way you walk, the way you talk, the way you close your eyes

This was Lightfoot’s final Top 40 hit, peaking at #33 on this date in 1978. Enjoy this great song today.
