Ever since Love and Theft started their career in 2006, they have given the country music world a variety of unique songs that have the power to stick with you after just one listen.

One of those songs is definitely the band's second single, "Dancing In Circles," which was released in December 2009 off of the band's debut album, World Wide Open. The song ended up making its way onto the Billboard U.S. Hot Country Songs chart, peaking at the 25th spot.

The song, which has a waltz-like style, features band member Stephen Barker Liles as the lead vocalist. 

Lyrically, the song questions why we continue to keep "dancing in circles," by lying, stealing, fighting, and killing, and encourages us to put aside our differences and love one another.

The music video for "Dancing In Circles" is just as meaningful as the song itself. The group stands on a stage in the middle of an urban street, with vintage footage from wars and other historical events playing across the buildings beside them.

At the end of the song, various people of different ages, nationalities, and walks of life all come together to listen to the band sing, with smiles on their faces as they step out into the sun.

Roughstock music critic Matt Bjorke praised  Love and Theft for the song, saying that it had a universal message everyone should pay attention to:

"Who cannot agree with the message delivered here, which is that we should find a way to overcome our differences and accept somebody for who they are and not hate somebody simply because they are different than you."

We agree with Bjorke, the message behind "Dancing In Circles" is one that all of us should live by.

LYRICS BELOW

I don't understand why we do what we do to each other
According to His word we're all born sisters and brothers
But we lie and we steal, fight and we kill
Even though we know the way

Why do we go dancing in circles when we know it never ends?
We come so close to loving each other
And then we go dancing in circles again

All through the ages we tried to share this world together
Turning the pages, pretending we'll live here forever
But we'll have to face our maker someday
And reap what we've sown all the way

Why do we go dancing in circles when we know it never ends?
We come so close to loving each other
And then we go dancing in circles again

We know how so why can't we just get it right?
And I pray someday we'll overcome
All the damage we've done and we'll fly

Why do we go dancing in circles when we know it never ends?
We come so close, so close to living His plan
Loving each other like sisters and brothers
And then we go dancing in circles again, oh yeah
