lyrics

Merry-Go-Round


1. Watching the roundabout
See how the children play
Feelings worn inside out
Everyday your best day

Life is a merry-go-round
Bringing us up then dropping us down
Better hold on or we might hit the ground
I think I'd rather be spinning
On this merry-go-round

2. Begging for some small alms
My mind on other plans
A kingdom fell from the sky
Into my outstretched hands

Life is a merry-go-round
Bringing us up then dropping us down
Better hold on or we might hit the ground
I think I'd rather be spinning
On this merry-go-round

Riding on eagles wings
Hurling through time and space
Over the mountains edge I tumbled into a finer place

Just like a long-lost friend
You ran to be by my side
Then you were gone again
Oh how you changed my life

Here on the merry-go-round
Bringing us up then dropping us down
Better hold on or we might hit the ground
I think I'd rather be spinning
On this merry-go-round

Watching the roundabout
See how the children play
