Found on Human Nature.

I remember so long ago wondering
Could we stay this way forever
On this carousel turning and laughing
We just wanted to be together

And so we did it
We left on our own merry way
Into this world alone

In the sand at the sea we lay gazing
At the stars up above in the heavens
There was nothing to keep us from playing
We just wanted to be together

Why did we do it
We left on our own merry way
Into this world alone

Little did we know
Where we were going then
And when things got cold
Trying not to pretend

Ooo...

And still we did it
We left on our own merry way
Into this world alone

How were we to know
Things were so simple then
Somehow we lost hope
Falling to earth again

Then came that cold winter's day
When we ended it forever
After everything we used to say
There was nothing to keep us together

And so we did it
Each left on our own merry way
Back to this world alone
