Carousel

She's from a world

Of popcorn and candy

Pony rides for a dime

Little children laughing



I'm from a world

Of disappointments and confusions

But I want her to be mine

I started talking

She kept on walking

She disappeared into the crowd



I lost my heart

On the carousel

To a circus girl

Who left my heart in pieces

Lost my heart

On The carousel

To a circus girl

Who ran away.



I was the clown

And she was the dancer

We both knew it wouldn't work

But we took our chances

What I can't recall

Is if there was a girl at all

Or was it my imagination?

I still remember

All of those faces

And now all I have is memories.



I lost my heart

On the carousel

To a circus girl

Who left my heart in pieces

Lost my heart

On The carousel

To a circus girl

Who ran away.



Two different people

In love for an instant

To see that the circus came today

Sometimes I can hear the calliope

And I can hear her calling me.



Don't you know?

I lost my heart

On the carousel

To a circus girl

Who left my heart in pieces

Lost my heart

On The carousel

To a circus girl

Who ran away
