Top of the Ferris Wheel
I ran as fast as I could down to the storefront corner
Peeking over the row homes, hoping to find a promise of the Ferris Wheel
Part of the sphere, winking back at me from the sky
I could see colors the lights all aglow, oh how they twinkle at night
It’s time for the carnival, can I go?
Take a ride on the merry-go-round
Let’s glide to the top of the Ferris wheel, I can see everything better from here
Didn’t have much to hope for, never dreamed of diamonds or rubies
Came by the crazy honestly, learned how to act sane from the movies
Oh you should have seen me back then, I was drunk with desire
I wanted to be good at something, good to someone, prove them all to be liars (Chorus)
I sit on the bench in Cape May, October lies mute on the shore
The church is a junkie’s playground, the carnies don’t stop there no more
Yes it’s a bit chilly in autumn, but I’m still seeking thrills and I have the right
No one should hold that against me, everyone deserves to see pretty lights
Doesn’t matter how fast you go, go fast or slow as you might
All of life is a circle, catch as you can, don’t hold on too tight
Just when you think you’ve gone forward, you might go backward again
Don’t waste your time counting accomplishments when you can’t count on your friends
