“Circle in the Sand” is a song recorded by Belinda Carlisle and released in 1988 from her album Heaven on Earth.

“Circle in the Sand” was written by Rick Nowels and Ellen Shipley, who wrote many of Carlisles hit singles in the late 1980s and into the early 1990s. The first known appearance of the song in progress is from the Lost Heaven Demos bootleg which features a solid drum beat, lead keyboard line and simple bass with no guitars present, and completed lyrics. The final album version of the song features a unique lead keyboard theme provided by Thomas Dolby, combined with a thumping bassline and accentuated with swirling and shimmering guitar effects. The combined effect has been compared to songs by the Shangri-Las, such as their song “Remember (Walking in the Sand)”.

The memorable music video was directed by Peter Care and features Carlisle singing with various beach scenes in the background. The video mirrors the lyrical content of the song with “cold wind”, “tide moves in” and “waves crash”-ing throughout. It makes effective use of video editing tricks, by displaying different images of Carlisle and the surf against sheets hanging on a clothes line with another surf behind it. The combined effect gives the resemblance of a video-based collage. Carlisles look in this video is the same long, red hair look she features on the back cover of the Heaven on Earth album.
The video uses the single edit version of the song (length 3:40) and was released by MCA in March 1988.

Lyrics
Sundown all around
Walking through the summer’s end
Waves crash, baby, don’t look back
I won’t walk away again
Oh, baby, anywhere you go,
We are bound together
I begin, baby, where you end
Somethings are forever
Circle in the sand
Round and round
Never ending love is what we’ve found
And you complete the heart of me
Our love is all we need
Circle in the sand
Circle in the sand
Cold wind, tide moves in
Shivers in the salty air
Day breaks, my heart aches
I will wait for you right here
Oh baby when you look for me
Can you see forever?
I begin, baby, where you end
We belong together
Circle in the sand
Round and round
Rising of the moon as the sun goes down
And you complete the heart of me
Our love is all we need
Circle in the sand
Circle in the sand
Baby can you hear me?
Can you hear me calling?
Oh, baby, anywhere you go,
We are bound together
I begin, baby, where you end
Somethings are forever
Circle in the sand
Round and round
Never ending love is what we’ve found
And you complete the heart of me
Our love is all we need
(Circle in the sand)
