Circles Lyrics Meaning

Let’s learn the meaning behind the lyrics of “Circles” by Post Malone section-wise.

[Verse 1]

We all know Post Malone as a chill type of person who gets along with pretty much everyone around him. He looks cool even when he is at his worst temperament.

However, the one person that he cannot get along with is his romantic interest. I mean just look at the lyrics of the song from him.

Anyway, jokes aside, let’s get serious here.

Even though Posty’s relationship wasn’t working, neither of them wanted to fix the dying relationship.

Now that the relationship is dead, they both want to revive it. Sadly, it is now impossible.

Post Malone has said we both should walk on our own but he will take the blame for the relationship failure.


However, he is not proud of him taking the blame because he believes there were mistakes from both sides.

But it is not a new thing for him. This was a regular thing, almost like a routine. It was always happening. Guess who is the one to disagree on this point?

Well, you’ve guessed it. His romantic interest, obviously.

We feel you Posty, we really do.


In nature, the seasons always change. Summer is ending soon but it will be back next year!

However, the same thing couldn’t be told for a relationship. Even though the seasons change in nature, love was always stale and cold.

Nobody couldn’t freshen up the stale relationship. Moreover, nobody wanted to freshen it up.

However, despite their relationship was running cold and was on the verge of dying, they were holding on to each other hoping one of them would change.

This escalated the tension in their relationship. They were “Feeding the flame” since they were making everything worse and worse.

Both of them want to run away from each other. But they keep on holding onto each other and repeat the same mistakes over and over again.

But this time, Posty seems to be standing up for himself.


This time, Post Malone is waiting on her to take the blame. He is just sick and tired of it.

Now we know how good guys turn evil!

[Verse 2]

In the second verse, Post Malone sees the dangerous side of holding onto a dying relationship.

Therefore, he wants his romantic interest to let go of this relationship so that they both can stay happy at the end of the day.

Both of them were finding it hard to let go of each other because they felt like they are meant for each other.

But the truth is, in most relationships, it is just about infatuation. Then it dies out. After that, they cling onto each other until it becomes compulsively disturbing.

Now, it is time to let go.



Post Malone is going hard on his toxic romantic interest. He blames her for not being able to understand where he stands.

She is not able to understand the pain he’s been going through. But guess who is the only person that thinks this way?

Post Malone, OBVIOUSLY!

It is him, he is the one who is constantly hurt. He is the one who keeps expectations.

The meaning of the lyrics in Bridge section of circles by Post Malone is this subtle realization of need for the change.

She, on the other hand, is indecisive. One day she treats him good and the next day he doesn’t exist for her.

This is very bad for Posty.

He doesn’t deserve mental and emotional pain. Let’s all stand up with Post Malone.


Post Malone seems to be pouring his heart out in this song.
