Corey Smith – The Carnival lyrics

Here we go again,
Around and around,
Oh it's a merry ride,
'Til we're back on the ground.
You dizzy up the child,
'Til the tickets are gone,
And it's time for the carnival,
To be moving on.

It carries you up,
Oh, it makes you feel alive,
It makes you laugh,
It makes you cry,
We fold the tents,
We take the carousel apart,
We roll away,
We roll away.
The sooner you can learn it never lasts,
The more you'll enjoy the carnival.

Don't hold you're breath,
Don't close your eyes,
Let go of the handlebars,
So your fingers can fly,
Seize the night,
And the autumn wind,
'Til we close the house of fun,
And leave town again.

Don't be afraid to be so easily amused,
It's a thrill we all could use,
And just like love,
It wears a candy apple coat that melts away,
We melt away.
And the sooner you can learn it never lasts,
The more you'll enjoy the carnival.

That's it for the Kalidopee
Keep lookout for the clowns,
Your the first in line the last to leave,
When we come back around.
